Shiva is the Hindu God of Destruction as well as the consort of Shakti. It is said that they created the universe as they consummated their love, but the universe will be destroyed and reborn if they consummate again.


Shortly after the birth of Chris, Piper Halliwell and Leo Wyatt attend a Hindu wedding after being pressured into it by Phoebe and Paige, for Leo was too consumed with revenge against Barbas, and Piper too overprotective of the newly-born Chris.

At the wedding of Christy Peters and Jeevan Anand, shortly after their arrival, two bright lights—presumably the life-force of the two Gods—appeared and flew into them. Piper suddenly grew four extra arms and became Shakti, the Hindu Goddess of Creation and Fertility, while Leo turned into Shiva, the Hindu God of Destruction and Chaos, as well as Shakti's symbolic lover. Later on, Paige exorcised the two deities from them with a spell.

Shakti and 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 separate from and set them free.
