Saṃstuti (संस्तुति) refers to the “laudatory hymns”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.18. Accordingly as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“[...] as a part of the rites of marriage the delighted Śiva grasped the hand of Satī of comely appearance. We all, Viṣṇu, I, you and other sages, bowed to Śiva and delighted Him with laudatory hymns (saṃstuti). There were great festivities with songs and dances. The sages and the Devas were in a gay mood”.
