Sānuga (सानुग) refers to “(being accompanied by one’s) servants”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.4.10 (“Boasting of Tāraka”).—Accordingly, as Kumāra (Kārttikeya) fought with Tāraka-Asura: “[...] On knowing about the victory of Kārttikeya, Śiva came there joyously with his beloved and the Gaṇas. He took his son on his lap and fondled him with pleasure. Pārvatī in her flutter of affection took Kumāra, resplendent as the sun, on her lap and fondled him with pleasure. Then Himavat came there along with his sons, kinsmen and servants (sānuga). He eulogised Śiva and Guha. [...]”.
