Ninada (निनद) refers to the “sound (of the conches)”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.40 (“The Marriage Procession of Śiva”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada: “[...] The loud sounds of Ḍamarus, the Jhaṅkāra sound of the Bherīs and the sound (ninada) of the conches pervaded all the three worlds. The tumultuous sound of the Dundubhis rose up in the air blessing the universe auspiciously and destroying everything other than auspicious. O sage, behind the Gaṇas, the enthusiastic gods, the Siddhas, the guardians of the quarters and others followed. [...]”.
