In Hindu legend, Sati successively play the role of bringing Shiva away from ascetic isolation into creative participation with the world .After the goddess immolates herself to uphold the honour of her husband lord Shiva. When angered and grief-stricken Shiva learns about Sati's death, he renders a terrible "Tandav" or dance of destruction, the more Shiva danced, the more destruction arose.
Shiv & Shakti are the eternal couple ; forever in undivided union and abiding together as Universal consciousness. Shiva is the Transcendent Self ; the stillness from which all creations are born , They are one. They are the universe.Shiva is the protector of the spirit realm and the regulator of Shakti (power) in the universe. Shakti is the nurturer of fertility and strength in the material world!
