Khyāpayat (ख्यापयत्) refers to “spreading (glory)”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.29 (“Śivā-Śiva dialogue”).—Accordingly, as Pārvatī said to Śiva: “[...] Spreading (khyāpayat) your glory in the worlds you shall make everything about my father fruitful. Thus you start your householder’s life. There is no doubt that my father with his kinsmen will accede to your request as he has already been urged by the sages lovingly. Formerly as Dakṣa’s daughter I was offered to you by my father. But the marriage rites were not duly performed then. [...]”.
