Merit annihilated when a man criticises Lord Shiva

ब्रह्मचारिशिवावतारवर्णनं नाम त्रयत्रिंशोऽध्यायः

Brahmachari Shiva avatara description Chapter 33

गिरिजोवाच |

Parvati said (to Brahmachari incarnation of Lord Shiva)

ब्रह्मचारिस्वरूपेण कश्चित्त्वं धूर्त आगतः |
शिवनिन्दा कृता मूढ त्वया मन्युरभून्मम || 39 ||

Some rogue, you have come in the form of a Brahmachari (a celibate). Fool, criticism of Lord Shiva done by you caused my anger/sorrow.

शिवनिन्दां करोतीह तत्त्वमज्ञाय यः पुमान् |
आजन्मसञ्चितं पुण्यं तस्य भस्मीभवत्युत || 41 ||

Of a man who criticises Lord Shiva on the earth, (even if) not knowing the element, all the punya (merit) collected by him during his (present) life turns to ash (gets destroyed).
