Munisattama (मुनिसत्तम) refers to an “excellent sage”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.28 (“Description of the fraudulent words of the Brahmacārin”).—Accordingly, after Śiva said to Pārvatī after revealing his form: “When the lord of the gods spoke in this way, Pārvatī rejoiced. Whatever distress she had felt during penance she cast off as something old. O excellent sage (munisattama), her weariness subsided. In fact, when the fruit is realised, the exertion felt during the process of undertaking perishes”.
