Bhāsita (भासित) refers to “having said”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.24 (“Śiva consents to marry Pārvatī”).—Accordingly, as Viṣṇu said to Śiva: “O Śiva, all the gods have come here to submit to you their misery perpetrated mysteriously by Tāraka. O Śiva, the demon Tāraka will be killed only by your self-begotten son and not otherwise. Ponder over what I have said [i.e., bhāsita] and take pity on me. Obeisance, O great lord, to you. O lord, redeem the gods from the misery brought about by Tāraka. Hence, O lord Śiva, Pārvatī shall be accepted by you and grasped with your right hand. Accept her hand as offered in marriage by the lord of mountains. She is full of noble attributes”.
