Mention of Sthira is found in various Epics of Hindu mythology with different meanings depending on the context. Sthira founds reference in Riga Veda (ऋग्वेद) with meanings like firm, solid, hard, compact or strong. As per Monier Williams dictionary, Sthira is a name of a Yoga.
Sthira also founds reference in Shatpath-Brahman (शतपथ-ब्राह्मण) and Mahabharata in which this name refers to still, calm, fixed, immovable or emotionless. Reference of Sthira is also found in Ramayan (रामायण) and Varah-Mihir-Brihat-Sanhita (वराह-मिहिर-बृहत्-संहिता) where Sthira means firm or steady. This name is also found to be referred in Kumar-Sambhav (कुमार-सम्भव) where Sthira denotes stern or relentless.
