Ārādhita (आराधित) refers to “propitiating”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.21 (“Nārada instructs Pārvatī”).—Accordingly, as Nārada said to Pārvatī: “O goddess, listen to the wonderful efficacy of this formula on hearing which Śiva becomes excessively pleased. This formula is a king of all formulas. It yields all cherished desires, bestows all worldly pleasures and salvation, and appeals much to Śiva. Repeating this formula in accordance with the injunctions you shall propitiate [i.e., ārādhita] Śiva. He will certainly appear before you”.
