Ātmajanman (आत्मजन्मन्) refers to the “birth of a son”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.36 (“The statements of the seven sages”).—Accordingly, as the Seven Sages said to Śiva: “O lord Śiva, lord of the gods, O great lord Śiva, please listen lovingly to the narration of what we, your attendants, have done. O great lord, the lord of mountains and Menā have been urged with different kinds of statements and examples from mythological legends. Undoubtedly he is enlightened. Pārvatī has been betrothed to you by the lord of mountains. It is not otherwise. Now please start for the marriage with your attendants and the gods. O great god, O lord, go to the abode of Himācala and marry Pārvatī in accordance with the customs for the sake of a son (ātmajanman)”.

context information

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
