Sukhadāyin (सुखदायिन्) refers to “those bestowing happiness”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.32 (“The seven celestial sages arrive”).—Accordingly, as Himavat (Himācala) said to the Seven Sages: “The seven venerable persons, resplendant like the sun, are approaching me. These sages shall be worshipped by me now. We householders are really blessed, to whom great men like these, bestowing happiness (sukhadāyin) on all, pay their visit”.
