In Hinduism

Purana and Itihasa (epic history)

Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation

Avārya (अवार्य) refers to “that which cannot be thwarted”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.17 (“The dialogue between Indra and Kāmadeva”).—Accordingly, as Indra said to Kāma: “[...] O dear, the test of a real friend is in the time of distress and is also based on what he does behind the back. It is not otherwise. This is truth. Now that an adversity has befallen me, which cannot be thwarted [i.e., avārya] by anyone else, O dear friend, it shall be a test for you today. This is not a matter that brings pleasure to me alone. This is a matter that concerns all the gods and others too”.
