Purana and Itihasa (epic history)
Vādinī (वादिनी) refers to “she who repeats (the name of lord Śiva)”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.30 (“The Celebration of Pārvatī’s Return”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada: “O dear, listen with pleasure to what happened thereafter when Śiva returned to His place. I shall mention it, remembering Śiva. Accompanied by her maids and assuming meaningful dress and features she returned to her father’s house repeating (vādinī) the name of lord Śiva. On hearing that Pārvatī was returning, Menā and Himavat excessively delighted went ahead seated in a divine vehicle. [...]”.
