The Matrikas associated with
the Alphabet are of paramount
significance in the goddess-
oriented sect of Hinduism,
Tantrism.[5] In Shaktism, they
are "described as assisting the
great Shakta Devi
(goddess) in her fight with
demons."[6] Some scholars
consider them Shaiva
goddesses.[7] They are also
connected with the worship of
warrior god Skanda.Devī
(Devanagari: देवी) is the
Sanskrit word for "goddess";
the masculine form is deva.
Devi or Durga is the supreme
being in the Shaktism tradition
of Hinduism, while in the
Smartha Tradition, she is one
of the the five primary forms of
God worshipped in the
panchayatana puja.
In other Hindu traditions, Devi
embodies the active energy
and power of male deities
(Purushas), such as Vishnu in
Vaishnavism or Shiva in
Shaivism. Vishnu's counterpart
is called Lakshmi, with Parvati
being the female
counterpart of Shiva.
