DURGA : COSMIC BIRTH – CREATOR AND MOTHER NATURE … M
SHIVA AND DURGA
DURGA SHAKTI PARVATI KALI
THE MOTHER OF CREATION
Shiva’s power is Shakti, the dynamic creative mother aspect of the twin creators.
It is she who creates and at the time of dissolution, it is she who swallows her own creation.
Shakti cannot exist without Shiva and Shiva cannot personify without Shakti.
She is multi-dimensional, with many names, many personas, and many facets.
Mother Durga represents the power of the Supreme Being that preserves order and life in the universe.
She is the energy aspect of the Supreme Being.
Without Durga, Shiva has no expression and without Shiva, Durga has no existence.
Shiva is only the silent witness.
He is motionless, absolutely changeless.
He is not affected by the cosmic play.
Shiva has no direct connection with the tangible elements in the universe and is obliged to emanate a manifestation, an emission of energy, Shakti …
SHAKTI – meaning “power” or “empowerment” is the primordial cosmic energy and represents the dynamic forces that are thought to move through the entire universe.
… through the Durga.
It is Durga who is the doer of all actions.
Shiva and Durga are regarded as the twofold personalization of Brahman, the primeval substance.
The Mother Durga is there always and will be there forever
She is the adhar (beginning) for all
She is Prakriti (nature).
