Baddhāñjali (बद्धाञ्जलि) refers to “joining one’s palms in reverence”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.4.19 (“Gaṇapati’s marriage”).—Accordingly, after Gaṇeśa spoke to Śiva and Pārvatī: “On hearing his words, Pārvatī and Śiva sat on the seats for receiving worship. They were worshipped by him and circumambulated seven times and bowed too seven times. Joining his palms in reverence (baddhāñjali) and eulogising his parents agitated by love and affection, many times, Gaṇeśa the ocean of intelligence, spoke thus”.
