Samādiṣṭa (समादिष्ट) refers to “going somewhere (as ordered)” [?], according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.19 (“Kāma’s destruction by Śiva”).—Accordingly, after Śiva spoke to the Gods: “After saying this Rudra vanished even as the gods were eulogising Him. The gods became delighted and free from mental suspense. O sage, abiding by the directions of Śiva and consoling Rati by means of the conciliatory words of Śiva, the gods returned to their respective places. O excellent sage, then Rati, the wife of Kāma went to [i.e., samādiṣṭa] the city and waited for the time mentioned by Siva”.
The Purana (पुराण, purāṇas) refers to Sanskrit literature preserving ancient India’s vast cultural history, including historical legends, religious ceremonies, various arts and sciences. The eighteen mahapuranas total over 400,000 shlokas (metrical couplets) and date to at least several centuries BCE.

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
