Soundarya Lahari - Part 40


There are two statements. One says: Even Shiva, only when united with you, Oh Shakti, is able to monitor the whole world. And the other statement says: The Triad formed of  Hari, Hara and BrahmA
worship Shakti.  Both these statements are contained in the 1st shloka.

Are Shiva and Hara different?  Are they not the two names of the same deity? Why two names, and two actions? Is one the Prime Mover  (corresponding to the word ‘spandituM’) and the other  the one who
worships (corresponding to the word ‘ArAdhyAM’)?  Are they not both the same?
