  1. Ardra in Sanskrit means “wet, moist, damp”. In Tamil, it becomes Aadirai (ஆதிரை) and hence the name thiruvaadirai (திருவாதிரை). But Ardra also became Arudra (ஆருத்ரா) by practice, may be for convenience. Hence it became to be called as Arudra in Tamil.

  4. Mahesh, is it ‘Ardra’ or ‘Arudra’ Darisanam?

    I vaguely remember Periyava’s audio about Thiruvaadirai Nakshathram and the meaning of Ardra being “that which is filled , brimming and exists everywhere”.
