“Where heaven and earth meet, towers the summits of the Himalayas. They are a scale for the world, just as the gods are a scale for the people.” With these words the tale of Lord Shiva and his wife Parvati begins. The Legend of Shiva and Parvati is the journey of a hippie-girl from a small town in Germany and a yogi from the Himalaya. It speaks of love and hate, joy and grief, life and death, and, ultimately, the courage to go one’s own way.
