Purana and Itihasa (epic history)

Source: Shiva Purana - English Translation

Sulajjā (सुलज्जा) (Cf. Lajjā) refers to “bashfully”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.18 (“Description of the perturbation caused by Kāma”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated: “[...] As was her usual practice she approached Śiva, bowed to Him, worshipped Him and stood in front of Him (awaiting further instructions). Pārvatī was stared at by lord Śiva, while she was laying bare some of the limbs bashfully [i.e., sulajjā], as is natural to women in such circumstances. Remembering the boon granted to her by Brahmā formerly, O sage, lord Śiva began to describe her limbs joyfully. [...]”.
