[...] He made the lakes abounding in full-blown lotuses (utphulla-padma) in the hermitage of Śiva, very fragrant by causing Malaya breezes to blow”.
2) Utphulla (उत्फुल्ल) or Utphullalocana refers to “wide open eyes (shining with brilliance)”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.24. Accordingly as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“[...] on hearing her [Satī’s] words Rāma became happy, his eyes shining with brilliance (utphulla-locana). He thought upon his lord Śiva. Emotions of love swelled in his heart [...]”.
