Purana and Itihasa (epic history)

Source: Shiva Purana - English Translation

Rocis (रोचिस्) refers to “brilliance”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.4.9 (“Boasting of Tāraka”).—Accordingly, as Tāraka-Asura fought with the Gods: “[...] Within a moment, the powerful Vīrabhadra, the slayer of enemies, got up lifting his trident aloft, that had the lustre of lightning and was blazing forth. The trident had a halo around, like that of the sun, the moon and the fire. It illuminated the quarters by means of its brilliance (sva-rocis) [svarociṣā]; caused terror even in the hearts of the brave. It had a deadly splendour and blazed well. [...]”.
