Pādapadma (पादपद्म) refers to the “lotus-like feet” (of Śiva), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.29. Accordingly as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“[...] Then inciting the fury of Dakṣa further, she said to Viṣṇu and all other Devas and sages unhesitatingly.. Satī said:—‘[...] It is a pity that out of foolishness you hold malice towards Śiva, the benefactor of everyone, whose lotus-like feet (pādapadma) are always resorted to by the bees in the form of the minds of lofty-natured persons, who confers all blessings even that of realising the Self’”.
