Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Yathāyogya (यथायोग्य) means “in a fitting manner”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.4.—Accordingly, as the Gods eulogized Umā (Durgā/Satī) with devotion:—“[...] O great Goddess, the purpose of the gods has not been completely carried out. The sages are agitated. Hence we, Gods, have sought refuge in you. O great Goddess, please fulfil the desire of the God, O Śivā, so that the words of Sanatkumāra may be fruitful. O Goddess, incarnating again on the earth please be the wife of Rudra (Śiva) again. Carry on your sports in a fitting manner [i.e., yathāyogya] and let the Gods be happy. [...]”.
