Subhūṣita (सुभूषित) refers to “having become embellished”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.45 (“Śiva’s comely form and the Jubilation of the Citizens”).—Accordingly, after Menā spoke to Śiva: “Delighted on seeing Śiva and overwhelmed by affection they cherished the comely form in their hearts and spoke as follows:—[The ladies said:—] ‘[...] This is well done. The excellent pair has been united. Everything has become meaningful in every activity. A vision of Śiva is inaccessible to men without penance. All of us have now become contented by seeing Śiva. Just as Lakṣmī was blessed by securing Viṣṇu as her lord, formerly, so also the gentle lady Pārvatī has become embellished (subhūṣita) on securing Śiva. [...]’”.
