Avidagdha (अविदग्ध) refers to “having escaped the terrible fire” (that burned the Three Cities), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.5.10 (“The burning of the Tripuras”).—Accordingly, as Tārakākṣa said to Śiva: “O sage, at the bidding of Śiva, those Asuras were burnt and reduced to ashes by the fire even as they were muttering thus. [...] Some who were partially burnt woke up and rushed here and there. They fell unconscious and fainted. There was not even a minute particle whether mobile or immobile which escaped unscathed (avidagdha) [avidagdho vinirmuktaḥ sthāvaro jaṃgamopi vā] by that terrible Tripura fire excepting Maya, the imperishable Viśvakarman of the Asuras. [...]”.
