In Hinduism, all power,
shakti, is female. So, the female represents the
totality of the power, and the male is imaged as the
agent of the female.
Also, in Hinduism, the sun is female and the moon is
male; he is born of her, dies into her, and is born of
her again every month. Shiva, this great power, is the
moon god. Parvati, his consort, is the sun power. And
although the worship in the masculine-oriented action
systems in India is directly to Shiva, it's to the
goddess Kali, that the worship finally goes. Thus
the woman is -"Shakti'' means "power'' and "strength.''
