Manobhilaṣita (मनोभिलषित) refers to “one’s cherished desire”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.31 (“Description of Śiva’s magic”).—Accordingly, after the Gods eulogised Śiva: “Then the lord Śiva who is favourably disposed to his devotees, the lord of magic and free from aberrations went to the lord of mountains. [...] Pārvatī bowed with devotion to her dear lover in the guise of a Brahmin (viprarūpin). On realising him mentally the goddess eulogised him with great joy. With great pleasure Śiva bestowed his blessings on all. O dear, He bestowed on Pārvatī her cherished desire (manobhilaṣita) in addition. [...]”.
