Yathocita (यथोचित) refers to “befitting”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.6.—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“[...] Menā bore the characteristic signs of pregnancy which almost indicated the imminent rise in pleasure of her lord and served as the auspicious cause for the future bliss of the gods. [...] The lord of the mountains considered his pregnant queen like the earth with a treasure within and like the Śamī twig with latent fire in it. The intelligent lord of mountains performed all the sacred rites befitting [i.e., yathocita] his love for his wife, the loftiness of his mind, the vastness of riches earned by him and the injunctions of the Vedas. [...]”.
