Saṃstūya (संस्तूय) (Cf. Stūya) refers to “eulogising”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.15 (“The penance and reign of Tārakāsura”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated: “Thus with ardour, the king of the demons [i.e., Tāraka] performed the severe penance duly unbearable even to those who heard about it. [...] Then all those gods and sages consulted one another and in their great fright they came to my world and approached me in a piteous plight. Bowing to and eulogising [i.e., su-saṃstūya] me with palms joined in reverence, all of them explained everything to me distressed in mind that they were. [...]”.
