Thus He is called Hariharaputra-Son 0 Vishnu (Hari), and Siva (Hara)-and is regarded as the third son of Siva, the' other two being Ganesa and Muruga or Karttikeya.

This is how His Holiness Jagadguru Sri Sankara of Kanchi describes the phenomenon: 'when the merciful charm of Narayana and the serene jnana (knowledge) of Siva combined, an effulgent light (Tejas) was the come. Out of this Tejas was born Ayyappa also as Ayyanar, Sasta or Hariharaputra." The word Ayyappa is derived from Aryan (one worthy of reverence) and, Appa or appan meaning 'Father' in Malayalam.
