Kāryasiddhi (कार्यसिद्धि) refers to the “achievement (of universal goal)”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.24 (“Śiva consents to marry Pārvatī”).—Accordingly, as Śiva said to Viṣṇu and others: “If goddess Pārvatī, the most beautiful lady were to be accepted by me, she will be able to resuscitate Kāma on account of the marriage. Then all the gods, sages and ascetics will become lusty and incompetent in the great path of Yoga. Kāma was burnt by me for the achievement of universal goal [i.e., kāryasiddhi]. It was at the suggestion of Brahmā, O Viṣṇu. No anxiety need be felt in this connection. [...]”.
