Īśitva (ईशित्व) refers to the “power of lordliness”, representing the achievements of the south-western petal of the Aṣṭadala (mystical diagram of the lotus of eight petals), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.1.11, while explaining the mode of worshipping Śiva:—“[...] the Liṅga shall be purified and installed with various mantras beginning with Praṇava and ending with Namaḥ (obeisance). The pedestal in the form of Svastika or lotus shall be assigned with Praṇava. In the eight petals, in the eight quarters, the eight achievements are identified [viz., the south-western is Īśitva (lordliness)]”.Source: Cologne Digital Sanskrit Dictionaries: The Purana Index
