She is mounted upon a bull. She is the Goddess of Nature, she exhorts mankind to maintain balance in nature and live in harmony with her. Devi says that whatever is there in the world is because of me, there is no matter or life which is not part of me. All the energies of world converge into me. Lord Shiva is the Lord of compassion and Devi Bhagwati spreads that compassion among masses. Devi means illuminator, one who spreads compassion and welfare.
