Vyatīta (व्यतीत) means “passed by” (i.e., when a few days ‘passed by’), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.9.—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Sage Nārada:—“O excellent sage, the lord of the mountains having thus explained to Menakā, both of them remained watching its result, pure in mind. When a few days passed by [i.e., vyatīta], lord Śiva, the goal of saintly men, the cause of protection and enjoyment wandering here and there in his flutter and excitement due to the separation from Satī, came there with pleasure accompanied by a few of his Gaṇas, in order to perform penance. The lord was completely agitated due to Satī’s love and separation from her. [...]”.
