Parvati is also Lord Shiva's greatest student!
Without anybody to teach the Vigyan Bhairav Tantra to, we all would be none the wiser as to the content, would we?
Also, I can understand that without Maya (Shakti), Shiva would only
be Parabrahman and wouldn't have the saguna aspect (iconography) I also
admire....yet it's still rather difficult to separate Shiva from His energies, but yeah, the whole point here is not
I guess we all have different ideas about how the Divine Goddess appears to us and Durga riding the tiger is amazing and all, but it doesn't quite 'go there' enough for me, nor does Kali...where the Buddhist notion of Kwan Yin comes closer for me in regards, or even the Babylonian Ishtar.
I also keep having a very weird and sneaking feeling that Durga ain't very happy with me making moves on Her 'other half' and She is one I wouldn't want to make angry in any way. lol
Having said that, your picture is very nice, but this is what I feel inside when I feel 'Goddess':
ॐ त्रिपुरायै विद्महे महाभैरव्यै धीमहि तन्नो देवी प्रचोदयात
Om Tripurayai Vidmahe Mahabhairavyai Dhimahi Tanno Devi Prachodayat
