God is one but the names are many, forms are many

God is one but the names are many, forms are many. Shiva-Shakti, both are one. Ardhanarishwara is one; half woman and half man, Hari hara is not two it is just one; half is Hara and the other half is Hari. Everything is one and there is only one God 'Bhagavanta'

~ Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

namah prakittai bhadraai  niyatah pranatah sma tamYa Devi sarva bhuteshu maatru rupen sansthitha, namastasye, namastasye, namastasye namo namah.

~ excerpt from Durga Saptashati, Markandey Purana, Tantroktam Devi Suktam

Meaning:

The Divine Mother who dwells in all living beings in the form of mother, We bow down to that Mother again and again and again.
