Lord Ardhanarishvara is one of the 64 Manifestations of the Absolute Reality Parashiva


Sri Ardhanarishvara is a composite form of Lord Shiva and Parvati, a half-male and half-female merger from the centre. This form also has other names such as Ardhanarisha, Ardhanarinateshwara, Ardhagaureeshwara, Gaureeshwara, Naranaari, Parangada, Ammiappan, etc. The right half of Sri Ardhanarishvara depicts the lord and left represents the Devi. The form strikes a perfect balance of male and female as one. Called Purusha and Prakriti, Ardhanarishvara symbolizes the all-pervasive and all-enduring nature of Lord Shiva. The Brihadaranyaka Upanishad explains that the form split into two to unite and proliferate to produce life. The Puranas like Shiva Purana, Vishnu Purana, Vaayu Purana, Skanda or Markendeya Purana have mentioned the origin of Ardhanarishvara.

According to Shaiva Siddhanta, Lord Ardhanarishvar is one of the 64 manifestations of the absolute reality Parashiva, the highest aspect of Lord Shiva. The scriptures portray various instances about this unique form of Lord Shiva that is a quintessential balance between male and female energies of the universe. They complement each other and are inseparable and need to remain that way to maintain an equilibrium in the universe. This union, according to Vedic experts, is essential for the universe to procreate after Pralaya or the great cosmic dissolution. The unity though contrast each other, also seem to match because Purusha is passive and Prakriti is an active force. The former is static consciousness or potential energy while the latter is dynamic kinetic energy.

A story in the Puranas reveal that Sage Bhringi, a true devotee of Lord Shiva refused to worship the lord along with Goddess Parvati. Lord Shiva encompassed Parvati within self to become Ardhanarishvara.
