Bhasmasāt (भस्मसात्) refers to “being reduced to asheses”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.34 (“The Story of Anaraṇya”).—Accordingly, as Vasiṣṭha said to Himavat (Himācala): “[...] Out of love, the sage accepted everything and ultimately requested for the hand of his daughter. The king kept quiet, being unable to give any decisive reply. The sage repeated his request saying—‘O great king, give me your daughter. Otherwise in a trice I will reduce everything to ashes (bhasmasāt)’. The king and his attendants were overwhelmed by the splendour of the sage. Staring at the old emaciated brahmin, they began to cry. [...]”.
