An short article on the above title is available here:


A friend sent his response:


Very good article. That is the truth indeed. For the same reson Vyasa has
depicted the same story for Shiva in Shiva Purana, Skanda Purana (Suta
Samhita) and also in Devi Bhagawatam. Had he been a bigot he would have not
included Kenopanishad story in Shiva and Shakti related puranas.

The Vidyaranya swamy's verse from Anubhuti Prakasha which you quoted as:

//Intent upon obtaining the grace of Ishvara, Indra stood there fixing his
gaze on the sky. Then, with a view to bless him , Hara took upon the form
of Uma//

The same has been explained by Sri Samavedam Shanmukha Sharma gurugaru
during his pravachanam on Uma Sahasram and said,

"Indrudini choosi Parameshwarudiki daya puttindi ta ...parameshwarudu ki
daya pudite aayana aavida (uma) ga maaripotadu ta" meaning, "when Shiva saw
Indra, he became compassionate on him, and when parameshwara becomes kind ,
he becomes the mother (uma)".

Just your point reminded me of this pravachanam so posted it here. :-)
