Līlāviśārada (लीलाविशारद) refers to “he who is an expert in various divine sports”, attributed to Śiva, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.3. Accordingly, while Dharma eulogised Śiva:—“[...] Thou art Śiva free from the influence of the three Guṇas, the fourth Being. Thou art beyond Prakṛti. Thou art expert in various divine sports [viz., līlāviśārada], yet without attributes and free from deformities and decays”.
