Bhavāmbudhi (भवाम्बुधि) refers to the “ocean of worldly existence”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.29 (“Śivā-Śiva dialogue”).—Accordingly, as Pārvatī said to Śiva: “[...] O great lord, I know you in every respect. O omniscient, of what avail is a detailed talk. Take pity on me. Spread your glory in the world indulging in your wonderful divine sports. Singing them, O lord, people can cross the ocean of worldly existence (bhavāmbudhi)”.
