Puṣpavṛṣṭi (पुष्पवृष्टि) refers to a “shower of flowers”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.20. Accordingly as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“[...] O sage, thereafter becoming fearless, I concluded the remaining rites of the marriage at the bidding of Śiva. O excellent sage, a shower of flowers (puṣpavṛṣṭi) dropped by the devas with great pleasure fell on the heads of Śivā and Śiva and also on all their sides. O Nārada, great festivities were conducted by the wives of the devas. Musical instruments were played, songs were sung, Vedic hymns were recited devoutly by groups of Brahmins. The celestial damsels Rambhā and others danced zealously”.
