Sthāvarajaṅgama (स्थावरजङ्गम) refers to the “mobile and immobile beings”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.5.6 (“Prayer to Śiva”).—Accordingly, as the Gods eulogized Śiva: “Obeisance to you, the soul of all, obeisance to Śiva the remover of distress, [...] The Śrutis and those who know the essence of Śrutis speak of you thus. You are the abode of all, the self-born and the knower of the essence of Śrutis. The various living beings created by you and to be created in future are invisible to us. The gods, the Asuras, the Brahmins, nay, the mobile and immobile beings (sthāvarajaṅgama) eulogise you alone. [...]”.
