Suśroṇī (सुश्रोणी) refers to “she who has comely hips” and is used to describe Pārvatī, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.12.—Accordingly, as Śiva said to Himācala (i.e., Himālaya): “This auspicious slender-bodied maiden of comely hips [i.e., suśroṇī] and moon-like face should not be brought near me. I forbid you again and again. A woman is a phase of illusion. As the scholars who have mastered the Vedas say particularly, a young damsel is a hindrance to ascetics. O mountain, I am an ascetic, a yogin, never affected by illusion. Of what avail is a woman thrust on me? [...]”.
