Kṛtsnaśas (कृत्स्नशस्) refers to “entirely”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.12.—Accordingly, as Himācala (i.e., Himālaya) said to Śiva: “O great lord of the gods, O Śiva, the merciful, O lord, open your eyes and look at me who have sought refuge in you. O Śiva, O great lord, the delighter of the universe, O great God, I bow to you who destroy all adversities. O lord of gods, the Vedas and the sacred lore do not know you entirely [i.e., kṛtsnaśas]. Your greatness is beyond the sphere of words and minds, inexpressible by means of words and incomprehensible. [...]”.
