Source: Shiva Purana - English Translation

Samabudhya (समबुध्य) refers to “having understood” (the whole matter), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.4.14 (“The Gaṇas argue and wrangle”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada: “On hearing the words of Śiva’s servants the son of Pārvatī became unhappy and thought:—“What shall I do?’. In the meantime, the goddess heard the noise of this wrangle between the Gaṇas and the doorkeeper, then looked at her friend and spoke:—‘Go and see’. The friend came to the door and saw them for a moment. She understood (samabudhya) [samabudhyata] the whole matter. She was delighted and returned to Pārvatī. O sage, coming back she reported the matter to Pārvatī as it had occurred. [...]”.
