Kampasaṃyukta (कम्पसंयुक्त) refers to “being struck with tremulous agitation”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.43 (“Description of Śiva’s wonderful sport”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada: “[...] O sage, on seeing the innumerable Gaṇas, Bhūtas and Pretas, Menakā was terribly frightened instantaneously. On seeing Śiva in their midst, the mother of Pārvatī trembled. [...] She was stunned, tremulous agitated (kampasaṃyuktakampasaṃyuktāṃ vihvalāṃ) and confused. You said to her ‘This is Śiva’ and pointed Him out to her. On hearing your words she fell on the ground like a tender creeper blown by the wind. Menā the chaste lady was grief-stricken. ‘What is this? I have been deceived for being too ambitious. Of what use is it to see this deformity?’ Saying this, Menakā fell unconscious there in a trice. [...]”.
