APPENDIX - IV 
TEMPLE VISIT - SEQUENCE IN THE WORSHIP OF THE ADORABLES

The object of worship next comes is Mother Parvathi installed in a separate shrine. Though she is inseparable from her Lord, occupying His half body here, she is separated and given a distinct form and caked Sakti. She richly deserves obeisance, since her part of energy, and Siva's part of consciousness are different, and combination of the two alone gives the cosmos its life and light. Their togetherness is comparable to coin with its two sides - observe and reverse. So prayers to her icon is a must. Muruga worship follows now. He is another form of Siva endowed with distinct attributes. Some mythologies enjoin offering prayers along with Muruga to Valli, Devayani, and his formidable spear, as they symbolise, Ichcha, Kriya and Jnana - willing, doing and knowing. So, a necessity.
