Ihāmutra (इहामुत्र) refers to “here and hereafter”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.54 (“Description of the duties of the chaste wife”).—Accordingly, as a Brahmin lady said to Pārvatī: “O Pārvatī, listen to my words with love that accentuate righteousness, that increase the pleasure here and hereafter (ihāmutra) and afford happiness to those who pay heed to them. A chaste lady sanctifies the worlds, destroys sins and is blessed. None else is so worthy of respect. O Pārvatī, she who serves her husband with love and considers him her sole lord, enjoys all pleasures here and obtains salvation hereafter along with her husband. [...]”.
