Shakti and Shiva depicted in the Book of Shadows

Commonly invoked at Hindi weddings, Shakti and Shiva are considered to be the Ultimate Lovers. Shakti, the Hindu Goddess of Creation and Shiva, the God of Destruction, are said to have created All Things and if they consummate their love again, it is believed that All Things will be obliterated and the Universe will be Reborn. Shakti is also considered to be the Ultimate Mother.

The Gods were later removed from Piper and Leo.

The Book of Shadows[]

After realizing Piper and Leo were clearly possessed, Phoebe Halliwell and her sister Paige Matthews researched the Book of Shadows and came across the entry on Shakti and Shiva and concluded that the couple must have been possessed by the two Hindu Gods. The entry contained an illustration of Shakti and Shiva and a full page description of who the two are. It read thus:
