ORIGIN AND HISTORY

Parvati derives from the Sanskrit word Parvat, which means "mountain." The Hindu goddess Parvati was reputed to be the daughter of Himavat, the Himalayas, which is where we get the meaning "daughter of the mountain."[1]

Parvati is one of the most important representations of the mother-goddess in Hinduism. She is the wife of the god Shiva, and the mother of Ganesha and Kartikeya. Parvati is a benevolent goddess, and a manifestation of Shakti, the necessary female energy of the universe.[1]
