Prasādakṛt (प्रसादकृत्) refers to the “blesser” and is used as an epithet for Śiva, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.41.—Accordingly, as Viṣṇu and others eulogized Śiva:—“[...] O merciful lord, we have been protected always by you alone from different miseries. Similaly protect us now. O lord the blesser (i.e., Prasādakṛt), O lord of Durgā, revive the incomplete sacrifice of Dakṣa Prajāpati immediately. Let Bhaga regain his sight, let the initiated Dakṣa be restored to life, let the teeth of Pūṣan grow, let the moustaches of Bhṛgu appear as before”.
