Sāniddhya (सानिद्ध्य).—The temple’s spiritual energy can be sustained only if the deity’s sāniddhya (abode of God) remains unsullied. Therefore the most important dharma of the ādiśaiva priest is to maintain the “presence” and sanctity of the deity by offering regular parārthapūjā as prescribed. Only then can the temple be a storehouse of energy for the public. Only then can the devotees find their God in the sanctum.
