Dāridrya (दारिद्र्य) refers to “poverty”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.35. Accordingly, as Viṣṇu said to Dakṣa:—“[...] poverty (dāridrya), death and fear, these three take place when people worthy of worship are not worshipped and when undeserving people are honoured. Hence with all efforts, the bull-bannered deity shall be respected and revered. A great terror has befallen us because lord Śiva has been dishonoured here”.
