“My Mother - Amma

Her touch was my solace,
Her smile did encourage,

Her love was my strength,
Her stare, I fully decant,

Her care was my power,
Her joy was my shower,

Her anger corrected my path,
Her laughter filled my heart,

Her silence made me ponder,
Her glare was my reminder,

Her scorn corrected my track,
Her embrace I never did lack.”

“Parvati has wrathful incarnations surely,
As Durga, Kali, Shitala Devi, Tara, Chandi,
She has benevolent forms like Katyayani,
Kamalatmika, Bhuvaneshwari, Lalita, Gauri.

Parvati as the Goddess of Power does be,
Who source of all forms and of all beings be,
In Her all the power but exists undoubtedly,
And She who the destroys all fear clearly be.

The apparent contradiction that Parvati be,
The fair one, Gauri, and the dark one, Kali,
Suggests the placid wife, can change fully,
To her primal chaotic nature as powerful Kali.”
