Vigarhita (विगर्हित) refers to a “despicable mess”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.19. Accordingly as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“[...] but the lord Śiva saw it by His divine vision. The trickling down of the semen excited His fury and He said—“O sinful wretch, what a despicable mess (vigarhita) you have perpetrated? At the time of her marriage you have passionately gazed at the face of my beloved’”.
