Hindu - A mother-goddess. A name of Devi as 'the mountaineer'. A mild form of Durga. Daughter of Himavan and Mena. Sister of Vishnu. Wife of Shiva. Mother of Ganesha and Skanda. Shiva's first wife, Sati, immolated herself but was later reborn as Parvati. When Shiva deplored her dark skin, Brahma transformed her into Gauri, 'the Yellow Devi'. Some say that it was Gauri who was burned to death to become Sati. Another version says that Brahma created Gauri as a wife for Rudra. She, or Uma, once covered Shiva's eyes, putting the world in darkness, and he then developed a third eye in his forehead. In one story, Shiva banished her to earth as a fisher-girl and then sent Nandu in the form of a shark to destroy the fishermen's nets. The foster-father of Parvati offered her as wife to any man who could kill the shark and Shiva was able to win back his wife by appearing in the form of a young man and catching the shark. She is sometimes depicted with four arms or with an elephant's head.
