Yathāruci (यथारुचि) means “to accept one with pleasure”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.10.—Accordingly, as Śiva said to the Earth (Dharaṇī):—“O Earth, you are blessed. Rear this child of mine lovingly, born [i.e., udbhūta] of my glittering drops of sweat over you. Although the child is born of the sweat of my body, O Earth, he will be famous in the world after your name. He will be a bestower of pleasures and will be free from the three distresses always. This boy of yours will be a bestower of lands and will have good qualities. He will make me too happy. Accept him with pleasure”.
