Parvati Mantra: A Chant to a Beautiful Goddess
Parvati, also known as Uma, is the Hindu deity of fertility, love and devotion as well as divine strength and power. She is the gentle and nurturing aspect of the goddess energy. Parvati is part of a trinity of Hindu goddesses that also includes Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth and prosperity, and Saraswati, the goddess of knowledge and learning.
Meaning of Parvati's Name
Parvati is the consort of Shiva and the mother of Ganesha and Kartikeya. She is the daughter of Himavan (the god and personification of the Himalayas) and Queen Mena. Parvati’s name is derived from the Sanskrit words for “mountain.” Her name can be translated as “daughter of the mountains.”
The words to this chant are, “Parvati, Parashakti Parvati; Jai Parvati, Shakti Mata.” A translation of the meaning is: “Victory to Parvati, the one who is the highest of the divine goddesses and the Mother of Life.” A word by word translation is as follows:
PARASHAKTI: the highest shakti (feminine energy, goddess)
SHAKTI: the formless feminine energy that pervades the universe and all life
MATA: Sanskrit word for Mother
Goddess Parvati's Symbolism
Parvati carries a trident. The three-pronged trident removes evil on the physical, mental and spiritual levels. In the human body, the trident represents the place where the three main nadi or energy channels meet at the third eye. The central channel–which is the longer, central point on the trident–continues upwards to the crown.
