Sāgarāṃbarā (सागरांबरा) refers to the “ocean-girt earth”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.24. Accordingly as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“[...] Once Śiva accompanied by Satī and seated on His Bull wandered over the Earth, in one of his sportive activities. Wandering over the ocean-girt Earth (sāgarāṃbarā) He reached Daṇḍaka forest where the lord of truthful stake and transaction pointed to Satī the beauty of the surrounding nature. There Śiva saw Rāma who was searching for Sitā who was deceitfully abducted by Rāvaṇa. Lakṣmaṇa too was there”.
