Lalitasahasranama Series Verse 183
SHREE SHIVA SHAKTIYEKA RUPINI LALITAMBIKA: LALITASAHASRANAMA NAME 999;VERSE 183
This second last verse from the Lalitasahasranama is a wonderful and apt description of Devi.
SHRI SHIVA: One who is identical to Shiva!
SHAKITYEKA ROOPINI: One who is the unity of Shiva & Shakti.
Thus… The Divine Mother is a culmination of both Shiva & Shakti and her gender is not merely feminine. She is beyond gender and forms. She is the eternal consciousness principle that is nondual and the SELF alone.
MAHASHIVRATRI LOVE & BLESSINGS!
may all know the SHREE state of Devi which is neither male nor female but pure auspiciousness alone!
