Laukikācāra (लौकिकाचार) refers to “worldly conventions”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.41.—Accordingly, as Viṣṇu and others eulogized Śiva:—“[...] O great lord, the lord of the gods and the prescriber of worldly conventions (i.e., laukikācāra-kṛt), we know you to be Śiva and Brahman, thanks to your favour. O lord Śiva, why do you delude us by your illusion which is inscrutable and which deludes people always”.
