Aṣṭamūrti (अष्टमूर्ति) refers to “great sages”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.32 (“The seven celestial sages arrive”).—Accordingly, as Śiva said to the Seven Sages: “[...] O great sages (paramarṣi), all the eight cosmic bodies that I possess are not for furthering my self-interest, they are for helping the wide world. A great penance has been performed by Pārvatī. That cannot be performed even by great sages. I have to give her the great fruit thereof. Indeed my vow is to render delight to my devotees. The fruit I bestow on her shall be conducive to her welfare. Hence I wish to marry her. [...]”.
