"Parvati is a goddess of love, with a seductive radiance directed at her beloved, yet at the same time focused inward, on her own essence. She's mother, a yogini, a seeker of truth who inquires deeply into the nature of reality. She's powerful and she's tender, she's willful and she's playful -both at the same time.
