Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Sarvajagat (सर्वजगत्) refers to the “entire universe”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.5.—Accordingly, as Menā eulogised Śivā (i.e., Umā/Durgā):—“[...] You are the great power latent in fire; you are the burning power of the sun’s rays; you are the pleasing power of the extensive moonlight. O Goddess, I bow to you. To good women you manifest yourself as their beloved; to persons of perfect self-control and sublimation you manifest yourself as eternal; to the entire universe [i.e., sarvajagat] you manifest as desire; as of Viṣṇu you are the Māyā so you are of Śiva. You assume different forms as you please for the purpose of creation, sustenance and annihilation and give birth to the bodies of Brahmā, Viṣṇu and Śiva. You, of such potentiality, be pleased. Obeisance to you again”.

The highest of splendors is highest light of light. The divine Lord is the supreme cause of all the world (sarvajagat—sarvasya jagato).
