Jagatpati (जगत्पति) refers to the “lord of the universe”, and is used as an epithet of Śiva, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.17. Accordingly as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“[...] being asked thus by my son Dakṣa, I spoke with a smile thereby delighting Dakṣa, the lord of the subjects: ‘O Dakṣa, listen. I shall tell you why I have come here. The wholesome benefit of your progeny is what I desire and what you must also desire. Your daughter has propitiated Śiva, the lord of the universe (Jagatpati) and has secured a boon. The opportune moment for the same has arrived now’”.
