Kali, Parvati, Uma

I keep finding Uma, Parvati or Kali among her over one thousand names in all different places. 
I was surprised to spot her in one of the Buddhist monastery. Then it occurred to me – after all she is the daughter of Himalayan king Himavan and mother Mena. She is part of the Himalayas as much as Shiva. She exists in all Himalayan cultures, in branches of Hinduism including Shaktism or Shavism. Even Buddhism has her stories. 

I will be adding photographs of Parvati, Kali, Uma and other forms as I found them over time on this page. Stay tuned
