Parasiva exists as under the forms of Sambhu, Sadasiva, Iśana, Rudra, Viṣṇu, Brahma. sakti is both Mayaand Mūlaprakṛti, which represents Nature as the revelation of Self. Nature as the passage of descent from Self to matter, and nature as the dense veil of Self (tamas). The Devī is thus the treasure-house of guṇas (guṇanidhih). Mūlaprakṛti is the womb and the womb thrills to the movement of the essentially active rajoguṇa, and now unstable guṇas under the Sivaevolves the universe which is ruled by siva and Maheshwari

Through the prakṛta and vaikṛta creations, issued the Devas, people , animals, and the whole universe, which is the work and manifested in form of the Devī.

The Goddess (Devi) is the great Sakti. She is maya, for the maya which produces the samsara is. As Lord of maya, She is Mahamaya. Devi is avidya; and vidya (knowledge), because She liberates and destroys the samsara. She is Prakṛti, and, as existing before creation, She is the adya śakti. The atmashould be contemplated as Devī. Sakti or Devi is the Brahman revealed in its Mother aspect (srimata) as nourisher of the worlds. Kali says Herself in Yogini Tantra: “Saccidanandarupāham Brahmaivaham sphuratprabham.” So the Devi is described with attributes both of the qualified Brahman. She is also addressed with so many epithets which denote the unconditioned Brahman.
