Hindu Mythology

The colorful deities and demons of India...

SATI

Hindu Mother Goddess

Mother Goddess and consort of SHIVA

As a young girl she fell madly in love with Shiva, which was opposed by her father Daksha. This led to bitter enmity.

Sati was so upset by it all she threw herself into a sacrificial fire. She burst into flames of purity.

Grief-stricken Shiva whirled off on a self-destructive Dance of Death, which would destroy the universe.

Vishnu leapt in and brought Sati back to life as Parvati, who became the wife of Shiva for evermore. No more deadly dancing and lots of living happily ever after for a bit.
