Introduction

Many people don’t know much about Goddess Parvati, the wife of Lord Siva. Some may have heard about two of her expansions, Goddess Kali (black, with a large machete and garland of skulls) or Durga (Warrior Goddess on a lion), or about Lakshmi (Goddess of Prosperity) or Saraswati (Goddess of Wisdom), but Parvati escapes notice.  She is gentle, not a “warrior goddess,” and isn’t known for being approached for wealth or wisdom, so she is often overlooked.

According to Hindu Cosmology, she is the creator of the universe and all life, and Siva, her husband, its annihilator. They are like two sides of one coin, without which nothing else can exist.  Accordingly, she is known as the seat of the Vedas, the world’s oldest scripture, and the mystical knowledge of mantra, tantra and yantra known as Sri Chakra.   In Taoism, she is  the mother of the ten thousand things, Quan Yin in Buddhism, and Christianity presupposes her existence by speaking of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost; after all, how can there be a Father or a Son without a Mother?  We speak of Mother Earth and Mother Nature, and the majority of all people hold a special love for their own mother.  So, who is this Mother who is so integral to our lives, yet so over-shadowed in our culture?  Is she useful on a daily basis?

This Sahasranama, hymn of praise of 1008 names of the Goddess, attempts to offer a glimpse of the scale, scope, breadth and depth of who she is, what she means in our lives and her exhilarating power. After all, it is the Mother who births us, nourishes us, nurtures us and develops us.  It is her energy that makes dynamic growth a possibility that never ceases throughout our lives.

Mothers are famous for their unconditional love, their all-knowing abilities, their healing presence, their beauty, their wisdom, and their adoration of their children.  They are often quiet, behind the scenes, doing exactly what’s necessary at all moments to make everything come off without a hitch.  Goddess Parvati is no different.  Symbolic of the Mother of all mothers, she does this on a cosmic scale, and contemplating this facet of existence elevates one’s consciousness.  Try reading it through once, and see if you can’t feel a difference.
