Shakti, the primordial Divine Feminine
energy in the Hindu tradition, dances on a lotus, riding waves of oceanic
energy. Her heart eminates radiant fields of energy, the fire of life is born
from her forehead, and her yoni holds a receptive crescent.
Her six arms hold the elements of air (incense), fire (lamp), water (nectar of
