Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Nirviṇṇa (निर्विण्ण) refers to a “dejected (mind)”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.32 (“The seven celestial sages arrive”).—Accordingly, as Menā said to Himavat (Himācala): “O lord of mountains, please listen to my words conducive to happiness. Please consult important devotees of Śiva regarding what has been mentioned by the Brahmin. Many disparaging remarks about Śiva have been made by this Brahminical devotee of Viṣṇu. O lord of mountains, on hearing these words, my mind is very much dejected (nirviṇṇa). [...]”.
