Samādhistha (समाधिस्थ) refers to “entering into (spiritual contemplation)”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.24 (“Śiva consents to marry Pārvatī”).—Accordingly, after Śiva spoke to Viṣṇu: “O sage, after saying this, Śiva became silent and entered into spiritual contemplation [i.e., samādhistha]. Viṣṇu and other gods went back to their respective abodes”.
The Purana (पुराण, purāṇas) refers to Sanskrit literature preserving ancient India’s vast cultural history, including historical legends, religious ceremonies, various arts and sciences.
