Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation

Rājasāmagrī (राजसामग्री) refers to “royal paraphernalia”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.33 (“The appeasement of Himavat”).—Accordingly, as Himavat (Himācala) said to the Seven Sages: “I do not see any royal paraphernalia (rājasāmagrī) with Śiva, He has none to support him. He has no assets. He has no kinsman. I do not wish to give my daughter to a Yogin who is extremely detached. O ye sons of the Creator of the Vedas tell me decisively. If a father were to give his daughter in marriage to an unsuitable person, out of love, delusion, fear or covetousness, he is doomed. He will go to hell. Out of my own free will, I will not give her to the trident-bearing Śiva. O sages, whatever arrangement is befitting here, may kindly be carried out”.
