The Story of Ardhanareeshvara
According to ancient Hindu mythology, there was a demon named Adi who had the ability to change his form at will. In an attempt to entice Shiva, Adi transformed into the form of Parvati. However, Lord Shiva, who is known as the all-seeing God, recognized Adi’s deceit and killed him.
Goddess Parvati, who witnessed Adi’s attempt to deceive her husband, was filled with fury at the sight of another woman with Shiva. She cursed Nandi, Shiva’s gatekeeper, turning him into a stone idol.
To calm Parvati’s rage, Lord Brahma intervened and took away her dark, furious form known as Kali. Parvati then took on a poised, golden form known as Gauri. Lord Brahma blessed her with the ability to merge her form with her husband’s so closely that they would never be separated. This is how the Ardhanareeshvara form was first eulogized
