Viśramya (विश्रम्य) refers to “taking rest (for a while)”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.41 (“Description of the Altar-Structure”).—Accordingly, as mount Himavat (Himācala) said to Nārada: “[...] Showing kindness to me you take your food and rest (viśramya) for a while. Then gladly accompany Maināka and others to Śiva’s presence. Accompanied by these mountains you request Śiva along with the gods, and the great sages, Śiva whose sproutlike feet are worshipped by gods and demons. Bring them here”.
