Purana and Itihasa (epic history)

Source: Shiva Purana - English Translation

Chatrin (छत्रिन्) refers to “one carrying an umbrella” and is used to describe Śiva, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.26 (“Pārvatī-Jaṭila dialogue”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada: “When those sages returned to their abodes, lord Śiva, the cause of great enjoyment and protection wanted to test the penance of the goddess. [...] He took the form of a very old man with the body of a Brahmin. His brilliance shone. He was delighted in mind. He had an umbrella [i.e., chatrin] and a staff (to support Him). There He saw the goddess surrounded by her maids on the platform, as pure as the digit of the moon. [...]”.
