Purana and Itihasa (epic history)

Source: Shiva Purana - English Translation

Sthita (स्थित) refers to “stationed” (e.g., ‘staying at one’s side’), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.19 (“Kāma’s destruction by Śiva”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Naradā: “After thinking like this, the great Yogin, the goal of the good, surveyed all round, his suspicion having been aroused. He saw Kāma stationed [i.e., sthita] on His left side with his bow fully drawn and ready to discharge the arrow. Kāma was haughty and so was very senseless. O Nārada, on seeing Kāma in that attitude, instantaneously anger was aroused in lord Śiva, the supreme soul. [...]”.

Sthita (स्थित) refers to “stopping (the functioning of the mind)”, according to Mahāprajñāpāramitāśāstra (chapter 4).—Accordingly, “[Question: Why is the Buddha called Samyaksaṃbuddha?]—[Answer]: [...] Furthermore, he knows that all the Dharmas are truly unchangeable (abhedya), without increase or decrease. Why are they unchangeable? When the functioning of the mind (citta-pravṛtti) is stopped (sthita) and destroyed (niruddha), when the path of speech (abhilāpamārga) is cut, he understands that Dharmas are motionless (acala), like nirvāṇa itself. This is why he is called Samyaksaṃbuddha”.

Even though staying in sameness (samatā-sthita) he recollects renunciation. Even though he does not recollect any dharma, he transforms into awakening (bodhi). Why is that? Since in [the state of] omniscience, there is no duality of truth and untruth (dharmādharma), the non-duality (advaya) is without any mental effort (manasikāra). In this way, son of good family, the Bodhisattva cultivating the knowledge of the dharma practices the recollection of renunciation authorized by the Lord. [...]”.
