Sarvasiddhiprada (सर्वसिद्धिप्रद) refers to “that which is capable of conferring all the achievements”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.4.11 (“The Victory of Kumāra”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada: “[...] On hearing the words of the lord, the delighted lord of the mountains eulogised Kumāra the slayer of his enemy and went back to his abode. O sage, with great pleasure and observing the rules Skanda installed three phallic emblems of Śiva that quell all sins. The first is called Pratijñeśvara, the second Kapāleśvara and the last Kumāreśvara. The three are capable of conferring all the achievements (sarvasiddhiprada). [...]”.
