Vibhraṣṭa (विभ्रष्ट) refers to “losing (one’s senses)” (i.e., ‘being out of sense’), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.33 (“The appeasement of Himavat”).—Accordingly, as Himavat (Himācala) said to the Seven Sages: “[...] Ever since, the mother Pārvatī has gone out of sense. Hences she does not wish her daughter’s marriage with Śiva. She has entered the chamber of anger. She is aggrieved and her clothes have become dirty. O brahmins, her obduracy is so great that she does not pay heed to any ad vice. I too am, you can say, out of sense (jñāna-vibhraṣṭa). I am telling you the truth. I do not wish to give my daughter to Śiva who is apparently a mendicant”.
