Mūḍhacetas (मूढचेतस्) refers to “senseless”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.19 (“Kāma’s destruction by Śiva”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Naradā: “After thinking like this, the great Yogin, the goal of the good, surveyed all round, his suspicion having been aroused. He saw Kāma stationed on His left side with his bow fully drawn and ready to discharge the arrow. Kāma was haughty and so was very senseless [i.e., mūḍhacetas]. O Nārada, on seeing Kāma in that attitude, instantaneously anger was aroused in lord Śiva, the supreme soul. [...]”.
