  1. In a opening shloka of RamCharit Manas, Tulsi Das mentions shiv & Parvati so inseparabe just as a word and its meaning (vagartha iv sampraktau, vagartha in pratipattaye).

    While Parvati/Gauri is the changed form of Saati, the Shiva's previous consort (and there is a story behind it as to why Shiva could no longer see Saati as her consort), Shiva is the eternal God. Anurag Agnihotri
