This daughter of yours, Pārvatī, was formerly the daughter of Dakṣa. Satī was her auspicious name. Satī who was Dakṣa’s daughter became Rudra’s wife. Being dishonoured at the sacrifice of her father, and being the witness of Śiva’s dishonour she was furious and she cast off her body. She herself is born in your house [i.e., geha] as Pārvatī. There is no doubt that she will become Śiva’s wife”.
