Parīdhāna (परीधान) refers to “wearing clothes”, according to the Brahmayāmala verse 21.14ab.—The renouncer in Vedic times wore ochre coloured clothes. This practice continues amongst Śaiva renouncers who attribute the origin of their orders to Śaṅkarācārya. Vaiṣṇava renouncers, who in their outer appearance resemble in many respects their Śaiva counterparts, generally wear white. Modern Śākta renouncers wear red clothes. A similar practice is recorded in the Brahmayāmala, a text that may well belong to the seventh or eighth century. In one of a series of vows (vrata) described there, the initiate may chose to perform he should wear “black and red clothes [i.e., kṛṣṇarakta-parīdhāna] and no upper garment”. Another prescribes that: “wearing red clothes, a red garland and (smeared with) unguent, he has red ornaments and holds an ascetic's staff. In particular, he should always carry a skull and a double-headed drum”.

[Tumburu is] adorned with all jewels, a tiger skin on the ground [below his] hips, a garment of elephant skin (gajacarman-parīdhāna), mounted on a very strong bull, and wears a rhino hide. [...]”.
