Dīnabandha (दीनबन्ध) refers to “distressed persons”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.51 (“The resuscitation of Kāma”).—Accordingly, as Rati said to Śiva: “[...] O lord Śiva, in the great festival of your marriage, all people are happy. I alone am unhappy without my husband. O lord, make me possessed of my husband. O Śiva, be pleased. O lord, friend of the distressed [dīnabandhatvaṃ dīnabandho para prabho], please make your words true. Excepting you, who is there in the three worlds including the mobile and immobile creatures who can destroy my sorrow. Knowing this, be merciful. [...]”.
