Nirbhinna (निर्भिन्न) refers to “being wounded” (by a weapon), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.4.10 (“Boasting of Tāraka”).—Accordingly, as Tāraka-Asura fought with the Gods: “[...] The fight between Tāraka and Kumāra was terrific and unbearable. All the living beings were afraid. O sage, even as all the persons stood gazing wonderingly (mahāścarya), both of them fought each other with spears in their hands. Each was wounded in the heart by the other with the spear (śakti-nirbhinna). Each tried to escape from the other’s. thrust. Both were equally strong like two lions. Both were fully equipped for the fight. [...]”.
