Queen saw a Gandharva and ask is that person is Shiva?

He is not Shiva; someone informs Queen.

The Man whom you have called Aghori, Let me tell you the real meaning of Aghori?

Shiva is kind, Swaymbho, the auspicious one.

Shiva is not dense and the one who is not extreme how could he be Ghor. Therefore Shiva is Aghori, Maina.

Moreover that Shiva is Aghori because he never differentiates his devotees based on Karma, caste, creed, and birth.

You have seen the outer beauty of Shiva and judged him on that basis. How Maina?

Shiva is the truth, and there is no one like Shiva. Trinity is incomplete without him. I m incomplete without chanting his name, Maina.

You might not know but, as I'm your Aradhya, Shiva is my Aradhya.
