Devi, in Hinduism, designates the World Mother, or the Great Goddess, the Shining One, who is manifested and known by other names such as Durga, Kali, as well as many more. All of these figures or representations very likely come from pre-Aryan cults and are now variations of shakti, the female principle. (see Devi, Eastern Mythology) A.G.H.
