Vimūrchitā (विमूर्छिता) refers to “(falling) unconscious”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.44 (“Menā regains consciousness”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada: “[...] After saying this Menā fell unconscious (vimūrchitā) on the ground. Agitated by grief and anger she did not go near her husband. There was a great hue and cry at that time, O great sage. The gods came near her. O celestial sage, I too came myself. On seeing me, O excellent sage, you spoke to her. [...]”.
