Bhavādṛśa (भवादृश) refers to “resembling oneself”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.4.14 (“The Gaṇas argue and wrangle”).—Accordingly, as Pārvatī’s friends said to Gaṇeśa: “O gentle sir, well done. Let them not enter forcibly. What are these Gaṇas before you? Can they win a person like you (bhavādṛśa)? Whether good or bad let your duty be done. If you are conquered there will be no further enmity at all”.
