Samedhita (समेधित) refers to “flourishing”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.16 (“Brahmā consoles the gods”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā said to the Gods: “O gods, the demon Tāraka has flourished [i.e., samedhita], thanks to my words of blessings. His destruction through me does not seem proper. Improper is the destruction through that source wherefrom he has flourished. Even a poisonous tree tended and nurtured by one cannot be cut and felled down by oneself. Śiva is the most suitable agent to carry out your task. But I myself cannot do anything remedial in this case. [...]”.
