Sukhasparśa (सुखस्पर्श) refers to “that which is gentle to the touch”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.6.—Accordingly, after the Gods eulogised Goddess Śivā who resided in the womb of Menā:—“[...] The earth consisting of forests, villages and oceans was very auspicious. Lotuses blossomed in lakes, rivers and tanks. O excellent sage, diverse winds gentle to the touch [i.e., sukhasparśa] blew; good men rejoiced and bad people became unhappy.. The gods stood in the sky and sounded big drums. A shower of flowers fell. Excellent Gandharvas sang sweet songs. [...]”.
