Samīrita (समीरित) refers to “having uttered” (auspicious words), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.4.10 (“Boasting of Tāraka”).—Accordingly, as Tāraka-Asura fought with Kārttikeya: “[...] On hearing the auspicious words uttered (samīrita) by the celestial voice, Kumāra became happy. He was surrounded by the Pramathas. He resolved to kill Tāraka, the king of Asuras. The infuriated Kumāra of powerful arms used his full strength and hit Asura Tāraka in between his nipples. Slighting that blow, the leading demon Tāraka, hit Kumāra angrily with his spear. [...]”.
