Sasuta (ससुत) refers to “(traveling) with one’s sons”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.23 (“Attempt of Himavat to dissuade Pārvatī”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada: “O excellent sage, while Pārvatī was engaged in penance thus for attaining Śiva, a long time elapsed but Śiva did not appear. Then Himavat came there along with his wife , sons [i.e., sasuta] and ministers and spoke to Pārvatī, who had resolved to continue her penance”.
