Ruṣ (रुष्) [=Ruṣā?] refers to “fury”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.23 (“Attempt of Himavat to dissuade Pārvatī”).—Accordingly, as Pārvatī said to her parents and others: “O father, O mother, O kinsmen, have all of you forgotten what I had said formerly. Even now listen to my vow. This great God by whom Kāma has been burnt in fury [i.e., ruṣ] is detached (you say). I shall propitiate him, by means of penance. He is favourably disposed to His devotees. All of you please go to your respective abodes with delight. He will certainly be pleased. You need not be anxious over. [...]”.
