Saṃstūyamāna (संस्तूयमान) refers to “being eulogised (with many hymns)” (as part of a marriage ceremony), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.47 (“The ceremonious entry of Śiva”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada: “[...] Musicians sang auspicious songs. Dancing girls danced to the tune. Accompanied by these, attended upon by all important gods and with flowers showered on Him delightedly, the sole kinsman of the universe walked ahead shedding lordly splendour. Lord Śiva, eulogised (saṃstūyamāna) with many hymns of praise, entered the sacrificial altar. He was duly worshipped.
