Purana and Itihasa (epic history)

Source: Shiva Purana - English Translation

Sajya (सज्य) refers to “stringing the bow tight”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.5.10 (“The burning of the Tripuras”).—Accordingly, as Sanatkumāra narrated to Vyāsa: “[...] Then stringing the bow tight (sajya) [atha sajyaṃ dhanuḥ kṛtvā] and fixing the arrow Pāśupata worthy of worship, he thought of the Tripuras. Then lord Śiva, an expert in excellent divine sports for some reason looked at it with contempt. Śiva is capable of reducing the three cities to ashes in a trice, Still lord Śiva, the goal of the good bides his time. [...]”.
