Vāsagṛha (वासगृह) refers to the “bed-chamber”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.50 (“Description of fun and frolic”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada: “[...] Then the sixteen celestial ladies arrived there and saw the couple [i.e., Śiva and Pārvatī] with great respect. [...] The celestial ladies made these sweet witty remarks to Him one by one. [...] Lopāmudrā said:—‘O Śiva, a duty shall be performed by women in the bed-chamber (vāsagṛha) after the meal. Hence give Tāmbūla (betel leaves with spices) to Śivā and go to bed’”.
