Duratikrama (दुरतिक्रम) refers to “one who is indefatigable” [?], according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.23 (“Attempt of Himavat to dissuade Pārvatī”).—Accordingly, as the Gods and others said to Viṣṇu: “We dare not go near the great lord Śiva who is very terrifying, furious and who has the burning brilliance of the deadly fire of dissolution. Undoubtedly he will burn us all in His anger as Kāma, the indefatigable [i.e., duratikrama] god, has been burnt by him”.
