Devi, the goddess of a thousand and one name is the oldest deity in the Hindu pantheon. Taking many forms, she is the protective mother, the bride, the reincarnation and the faithful one. She is known as the supreme Knowledge, performing with Lord Siva the great cosmic dance of liberation. Maha Devi, the great goddess is the infinite possibility of divinity, the basis of all form, the mother of the Trimurti (Brahmā, Vishnu and Siva). Since the world is nothing but an illusion, Devi, the great mother of all things is the illusion personified.
