Vedādhyayana (वेदाध्ययन) refers to “having studied the (excellent) Vedas”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.32 (“The seven celestial sages arrive”).—Accordingly, as the Seven Sages said to Śiva: “[...] Formerly we had performed three kinds of penance; we had studied the excellent Vedas (vedādhyayana); we had made offerings in the fire, we had visited many holy centres; thus whatever merit we have acquired verbally, mentally and physically that entire merit has now accrued to us by your blessing in remembering us. A man who worships you always shall be blessed. How can that merit be properly described, the merit of those whom you yourself remember? [...]”.
