Kāryārthin (कार्यार्थिन्) refers to “one seeking (some remedy)”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.24 (“Śiva consents to marry Pārvatī”).—Accordingly, as Nandikeśvara said to Śiva: “O foremost among the gods, Viṣṇu, other gods, the sages and Siddhas eulogise you in order to see you. They are being threatened by Asuras. Hence they seek some remedy [i.e., kāryārthin] and resort to thy feet, the seat of great fearlessness. Hence, O lord of all, the sages and the gods shall be protected by you. You have been particularly mentioned as the kinsman of the distressed and favourably disposed towards your devotees”.
