Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Utsuka (उत्सुक) refers to “eagerly hastening back (to one’s hermitage)”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.34 (“The Story of Anaraṇya”).—Accordingly, as Vasiṣṭha said to Himavat (Himācala): “[...] In the meantime the sage Pippalāda eagerly hastening back to his hermitage (utsuka—svāśramamutsukaḥ) saw a certain Gandharva in an isolated place in the penance-grove. The Gandharva was an expert in the science of erotics. He was in the company of a woman. He was therefore completely submerged in the ocean of pleasure, sexual dalliance and was lusty. On seeing him the great sage became very lustful. He lost interest in penance and began to think of acquiring a wife. [...]”.Source: Cologne Digital Sanskrit Dictionaries: The Purana Index
