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
