THE GODDESS WHO HAS PERIODS

'Parameswara becomes capable of creating the universe only when united with Sakti (Thee) but otherwise he is incapable of even a stir. How then could one h has not acquired merit (Punya in this and previous births worship Thee or at least praise Thee who is adored eve by Vishnu, Siva, Brahma and others.'

Such is the greatness of Parasakti who is commonly worshipped as Lakshmi, Parvati and Saraswati. There are scores of other names by which devotees of Devi- know her-Annapoorni, Rajarajeswari, Bhuvaneswari, Lalithambika, Durga, Bhadrakali and so on. The Chengannur Bhagavati is supposed to be Bhuvaneswari.

The eternal and essential union between Siva and Sakti is expressed in another beautiful verse, which says: 'Sakti is immanent in Siva, and Siva is immanent in Sakti.  I see no difference between the two as between the moon and the moonlight.'  The moonlight has no existence apart from and independently of the moon, and the moon also though (figuratively speaking) self-existing and self-shining has no separate existence except through the moonlight inherent in its nature.
