Saṃvrajat (संव्रजत्) refers to “shining” [?], according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.40 (“The Marriage Procession of Śiva”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada: “[...] Accompanied by all these sages and decorated in various ways, lord Śiva was going to the abode of the mountain Himālaya for the marriage with Pārvatī. He shone well (saṃvrajat). Thus the story of Śiva’s grand procession has been narrated to you. O Nārada, listen to the incidents of good portent that happened in the city of Himavat. [...]”.
