Purana and Itihasa (epic history)

Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation

Uparata (उपरत) refers to “reverting from (one’s trance/meditation)”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.24 (“Śiva consents to marry Pārvatī”).—Accordingly, after Nandikeśvara spoke to Śiva: “Śiva, who was thus informed by Nandin and who was extremely sympathetic, slowly reverted from His meditation and opened His eyes. Then lord Śiva, the highly efficient great Ātman, reverted from [i.e., uparata] His trance and spoke to the gods”.
