Uddīpana (उद्दीपन) refers to “heightening” (the love of all living beings), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.18 (“Description of the perturbation caused by Kāma”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated: “Thus the vast diffusion of Spring caused the display of emotions of love. It was unbearable to the forest-dwelling sages. O sage, then, even the insentient beings had the emotions of love. What about the state of sentient ones? Thus spring employed his unbearable power heightening the love of all living beings [i.e., kāma-uddīpana-kāraka]. On seeing the untimely display of spring, Śiva the lord, who had assumed a physical body indulging in divine sports, thought it surprising. [...]”.
