{I have this doubt that YOU were not completely satisfied even after taking the left half of Lord ShivA and went on to take over HIS whole body, as now the whole form of Ardha-naareeshwarar appears to be as red in color [assuming yours!]!!} 

[PP: Praying with this shlOka is equivalent to worshipping both ShivA and the dhEvi and will absolve one from all dangers and will get him all the wealth-‘sarva sampath’]
