Krodhasamanvita (क्रोधसमन्वित) refers to “one who is very furious” and is used to describe Viṣṇu, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.5.17 (“The fight between Viṣṇu and Jalandhara”).—Accordingly, as Sanatkumāra narrated to Vyāsa: “[...] By means of his discus Sudarśana [Viṣṇu] diffused his splendour all round. He shone with the brilliant lotus in his hand and offered fearlessness to his devotees. Holding the conch, sword, mace and the bow, the heroic deity was very furious (krodhasamanvita). He was efficient in the battle using fierce weapons. He produced the twanging sound from his bow and roared aloud. O sage, all the three worlds were filled with its loud sound. [...]”.
