Prasādita (प्रसादित) means “being sponsored”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.9.—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Sage Nārada:—“[...] Burning Kāma there by His fiery eye, on remembering my words, the lord became angry with me and vanished from the scene. After sometime, Lord Śiva quelled the pride of Pārvatī but he was propitiated by her again performing great penance. Following the conventions of the world, the lord married Pārvatī after being sponsored by Viṣṇu [i.e., viṣṇu-prasādita]. Then everything auspicious ensued. [...]”.
