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”.
