Samāhitadhī (समाहितधी) refers to “one whose mind is composed” [?], according to the King Vatsarāja’s Pūjāstuti called the Kāmasiddhistuti (also Vāmakeśvarīstuti), guiding one through the worship of the Goddess Nityā.—Accordingly, “[...] O goddess! You enter the heart of a man whose mind is composed (samāhitadhīsā tvaṃ samāhitadhiyo). Sweet ballads of your renown, O Gaurī, the Vidyādharas sing in the groves of Haricandana trees that emit the sweet fragrance of liquor on the banks of the heavenly river”.
