Purana and Itihasa (epic history)

Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation

Uddīpa (उद्दीप) refers to “(that which) heightens (the temptations of love)”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.18 (“Description of the perturbation caused by Kāma”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated: “After going there, the haughty Kāma, deluded by Śiva’s magic power, stationed himself, after first spreading the enchanting power of Spring all around. [...] O sage, diverse sounds of the hummings of the bees rang sweet in the ears of everyone heightening temptations of love [i.e., kāma-uddīpa-karā]. The bright light of the moon scattered all around appeared to be the emissary of lovers and their beloveds. [...]”.
