I shall recount the story of Pārvatī as well as the reason for penance, if you wish to hear. This my friend is the daughter of Himācala, lord of mountains. She is the daughter of Menakā named Kālī but famous as Pārvatī. She is not married [i.e., ūḍha] to anyone nor does she desire any other than Śiva for her husband. She has performed this penance for three thousand years. [...]”.
