Parvati

In Hinduism, Parvati (alt. spellings: Paarvati, Parvatti) is an alternate form of Shakti. She is named Paarvati as a Sanskrit convention, to be understood as 'the daughter of the mountain' - Parvata. She is married to Shiva, the Hindu God of Destruction. Shiva and Parvati are the parents of Karttikeya and Ganesha, the elephant-headed god of wisdom.
