Why is Parvathy called as Adi Shakthi?
Goddess Parvati is one of the primary deities worshipped in Indian mythology. She is considered the daughter of Himalaya, the king of the mountains. Though the Goddess has assumed many forms and there are many legends associated with each form, but the form of Parvati is very important because in this form, she marries Lord Shiva. It is believed that Adi Shakti, the primordial power behind the universe, takes birth as Parvati.
