Sadvṛtti (सद्वृत्ति) refers to “good conduct”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.25 (“The seven celestial sages test Pārvatī”).—Accordingly, as the seven Sages said (with false words) to Pārvatī: “[...] O daughter of mountain, the good conduct [i.e., sadvṛtti] of Nārada is thus well-known. Now hear about another activity of his in making men detached. There was a Vidyādhara named Citraketu. The sage instructed him and made him detached from his house. He bestowed his instructions on Prahlāda and made him suffer much at the hands of Hiraṇyakaśipu. He is definitely a person who splits others’ intellect. [...]”.
