Praṇodita (प्रणोदित) refers to “being urged (by the pries)”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.48 (“Description of Marriage of Śiva and Pārvatī”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada: “In the meantime, urged by the priest Garga [e.g., gargācārya-praṇodita] Himavat started the rite of marriage in the company of Menā. Himavat and Menā held the gold pot on either side. Himavat was bedecked in fine clothes and ornaments. The joyous mountain with the assistance of his priest wooed the bridegroom after offering water, clothes, ornaments, sandal paste etc. Then the brahmins were requested by Himavat ‘May the rite be formally started after narrating the Tithi etc. The auspicious hour has come’ [...]”.
