Kabarībhāra (कबरीभार) refers to “one whose plaited hair is thickly grown”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.46 (“The arrival of the bridegroom”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada: “[...] In the meantime the servant-maids in the harem of the mountain took Pārvatī out in order to worship the tutelar family deity. [...] With a gentle smile playing in her face she appeared very beautiful. Her plaited hair was thickly grown (kabarībhāra) and looked beautiful. Decorative lines over her body were exquisite. She had the Tilaka with musk and saffron. Gemset necklace shone over her chest. Bracelets and bangles of gems and jewels shone brilliantly. [...]”.
