Prasthāpita (प्रस्थापित) refers to “having sent someone”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.33 (“The appeasement of Himavat”).—Accordingly, as Vasiṣṭha said to Himavat (Himācala): “[...] On being requested by the gods, the lord has sent us (prasthāpita), the sages and Arundhatī to you. O mountain, we instruct you plainly. By giving Pārvatī to Śiva you will meet with great bliss. O lord of mountains, even if you do not give Pārvatī to Śiva out of your own free will, their marriage will take place as a result of the inexorable workings of fate. [...]”
