Sudṛṣṭa (सुदृष्ट) refers to “having seen (Śiva)”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.48 (“Description of Marriage of Śiva and Pārvatī”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada: “[...] The shrewd people realised the majesty of lord Śiva. They were pleasantly surprised and began to say to one another.—‘Śiva is of the form of knowledge. He is greater than the greatest. It is at His bidding that the vast universe is born. He is of independent movement. He can be realised by the greatest concentration. He, the lord of the three worlds, is now seen (sudṛṣṭa) by us.’ Then Meru and the excellent mountains became agitated and simultaneously spoke to Himavat, the lord of mountains”.
