U is for Uma in #atozchallenge

Adi_Shakti,_the_Supreme_Spirit_without_attributesThe most powerful incarnation of energy in Hinduism is in the female deity  –   the goddess called by many names –  If you understand the language of Sanskrit, then “Lalitha Sahasra nama” is the one which lists all her 1000 names…..just a simple sample of what kind of powerful goddess we are referring to here.

See the list of 1000 names in the alphabetical order with the English meanings here

1000-names-of-goddess – lalitha-sahasra-nama-with-meaning

Uma is one of her 1000 names.  Being born in a Hindu family, I am completely captivated by the mythological stories of Sakthi, her different forms and the thousands of temples.  Trying to cover her in this short post is crazy –  but if you need to learn more, there are multiple great web pages all over the internet.  Couple of them are here
