The great mother. Devi is the creator, maintainer and destroyer all in one, the complete Goddess package.

She's got the whole world in her hands, literally, being present in Durga, Saraswati, Kali ... in fact, as her name means 'Goddess' it comes as no suprise that she is present in all girly Gods.

Just to cloud the issue she is also known as Shakti, which isn't a Goddess at all, more an all encompassing feminine energy that balances the whole universe by keeping the man-God testosterone in check. But she's not all perfume and powder poofs, being prone to over-zealous fits of wrath and destruction herself, and often needs the male energy to keep her in check.

One time she was incarnated as Kali then ate the demon Raktavira and her after dinner hot-stepping almost destroyed the entire universe. She must have huge feet.
