Source: Shiva Purana - English Translation

Sahavāsin (सहवासिन्) refers to an “associate”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.25 (“The seven celestial sages test Pārvatī”).—Accordingly, as the seven Sages said (with false words) to Pārvatī: “[...] Nārada is a quibbler. He misleads others. If his words are paid heed to, you stand to lose in every respect. [...] Whomsoever this sage advocates his philosophy, very pleasing to the ears, generally the same person discards his hearth and home and begins to beg for alms. Nārada has a dirty soul though he is endowed with a white brilliant complexion for ever. We know him particularly because we are his associates [i.e., sahavāsin]. [...]”.
