Indudhavala (इन्दुधवल) refers to a “dazzling white” (conch shell bowl), according to the Netratantra of Kṣemarāja: a Śaiva text from the 9th century in which Śiva (Bhairava) teaches Pārvatī topics such as metaphysics, cosmology, and soteriology.—Accordingly, [verse 13.29-36, while describing the appearance and worship of Rudra]—“Assuming the form of Rudra, [Amṛteśa holds] a dazzling white conch shell bowl (śaṅkhakunda-indudhavala). [Rudra has the] form of Sadāśiva [and the Mantrin] visualizes [him] with four arms, mounted on a man. [...]”.
