My new mutimedia dance production about Supreme Goddess "AadiParasakthi" (AadiParasakthi)... Adi Parashakti (Sanskrit: आदि पराशक्ति, IAST: Ādi Parāśakti) is considered the Supreme Being in the Shaktism sect of Hinduism. She is also popularly referred to as "Parama Shakti", "Adi Shakti", "Mahashakti", "Mahadevi", "Mahagauri", "Mahakali", Satyam Shakti or even simply as "Shakti". "Parama" means absolute, "Satya" means the Truth as per many Shakta texts. The Devi-Bhagavata Purana states that Adi Parashakti is the original creator, observer and destroyer of the universe. It is also believed that Goddess Parvati is the complete and direct incarnation of Adi Parashakti.
