The Hindu "Shakti Goddesses"
Shakti is the sacred creative Divine feminine Power, the primordial Energy of Life that manifests all things into existence. It is the primal stirring of the Absolute pure awareness (known as Shiva) that gives rise to the existence of life (Shakti). Every God in Hinduism has his Shakti, and without Her energy they have no power.
Shakti is also referred to as the Divine Mother or the Great Devi in Hinduism. “Devi” is the sum of all manifestations or forms of the Mother, and may take many forms: loving, gentle, and full of blessings (Lakshmi, Saraswati), or ferocious and dynamic (Durga, Kali). The tri-Devi is the reference to the 3 Shakti goddesses: Saraswati, Lakshmi and Durga.
The Divine Mother/Goddess/Shakti is the creatrix who has manifested these dancing forms of consciousness as adoration for Her beloved, the eternal formless Supreme Being - Shiva- God the Father. These two Divine lovers are inseparably bound as “One” to play out their cosmic dance of Love for all eternity.
