Sāphalya (साफल्य) refers to “fruitful”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.22 (“Description of Pārvatī’s penance”).—Accordingly, as Pārvatī’s maids said to Himavat: “O Himavat, let the words of your daughter be heard through us. She wishes to make her body, beauty and family fruitful [i.e., sāphalya]. This can be achieved through penance and not otherwise. O excellent mountain, the permission may kindly be given—‘Let Pārvatī go to the forest and perform penance there’.”.
