Goddess Vimala in Hinduism

Goddess Vimala is an incarnation of Mother Goddess Shakti. She appeared on earth from the body part of Sati that fell on earth after the famous episode of Shiva carrying the body of Sati around the universe and Vishnu cutting it with his Sudharshana Chakra to save the world from total destruction.

A Perfect Man is one who has lifted himself from the world of his mind—intellect and has awakened to his inner Spiritual Nature.
A Man of Perfection is one whose beloved object, the Self can never be apart from him. And he has no sense of attachment with any other object. Having attained the Self, the inhabitant of his heart, he has such a complete sense of fulfillment that he has no desire for attaining anything.
