Goddess Uma

Goddess Uma Image
UMA is the Hindu Goddess of light and beauty. She is another avatar of the Goddess Parvati, wife of Shiva. One myth of her origin tells of her being born to Himavat, God of the Himalayan mountains, and Mena, an asparas or nymph. She had two sisters, Ekaparna and Ekapatala. All three sisters lived very austere lives, mastering their physical needs in order to enrich their spiritual powers. Ekaparna lived on a single leaf of the Parna tree. Ekapatala lived on a single leaf of the Patala tree. The third sister, who was the reincarnation of Shiva's wife Sati, sought to outdo her two sisters by living on nothing, not even a single leaf. Her mother was so alarmed that she cried out "U! Ma!", meaning "Oh! Don't!", and the third sister became known as Uma.
