The holy book "Durgaa-Saptashatee" carries the DHYAANAMA in the chapter number 10 wherein the worship is offered to "SHEVA-SHAKTEruupaama KAAMAESHAWAREE"[one of numerous forms of the DIVINE MOTHER].
SHEVA is the higher entity than the holy trinity of BRHAMAA, VESHHNNU and MAHAESHA/SHANKARA.
The DIVINE MOTHER KAAMAESHAWAREE clearly is higher than SHEVA, since she [the DIVINE MOTHER KAAMAESHAWAREE] combines in her own being both SHEVA and SHAKTE!
Any true spiritual-seeker must try to raise one's consciousness even beyond the SHEVA-CONSCIOUSNESS...!
Although any traditional devotee of the Lord SHEVA may find it strange at first, but the factual fact as per the Durgaa-Saptashatee remains that the true spiritual-seekers shall do well to go beyond even the PARAMA PETAA PARAMAATMAA SHEVA-CONSCIOUSNESS...!
Worshipping the DIVINE MOTHER SANAATANEE JAGADAMBAA may seem to be the correct way out...!
So, don't forget to worship the DIVINE MOTHER BHAGAWATEE KAAMAESHAWAREE this "MAHAA SHEVARAATREE"...!
