Parīkṣya (परीक्ष्य) means “to watch” (i.e., to examine/evaluate the results of something), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.9.—Accordingly, as Himācala (Himavat) said to Menā:—“[...] This is the dream I had, O bright-faced lady and I have told you all. Hence, dear Mena, for some time the result of this has to be watched [i.e., parīkṣya]. Certainly know this to be the proper step for me”.
