Pavamāna (पवमान) refers to the “wind”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.4.10 (“Boasting of Tāraka”).—Accordingly, as Tāraka-Asura fought with Kārttikeya: “[...] The wind (pavamāna) did not blow. The sun became dim. The earth quaked along with mountains and forests. In the meantime Himālaya and other mountains anxious to see Kumāra out of affection came there. On seeing the mountains extremely terrified, Kumāra the son of Śiva and Pārvatī spoke enlightening them thereby. [...]”.Source: Cologne Digital Sanskrit Dictionaries: The Purana Index
