Book of Shadows

Shakti / Shiva

Shakti, the Hindu Goddess
of Creation and Shiva,
the God of Destruction
are commonly invoked at
weddings because they're
reconsidered to be the
Ultimate Lovers.
Shakti, also called The
Ultimate Mother, and
Shiva, together created All
Things, and if they
consummate their love
again, All Things will be
obliterated and the
Universe will be reborn.


To Remove Gods From Mortals

We call upon the mortal ways,
And Gods who guide but may not stay.
We seek those of divinity,
To seperate from and set them free.


Notes and Trivia

  • The Shakti and Shiva entry is considered by the directors and producers of the show to be one of the most remarkable, intricate pages ever created for the Book.
  • The spirits are ultimately removed by Paige with a spell.
  • Unlike the Greek Goddesses, who were mortals blessed with godlike power, Shakti and Shiva seem to be 'true' Gods and thus could in fact be the ones that created the Charmed universe.
