|Title:||7x01 A call to arms|
Vanquished by Phoebe and Paige.
Shiva, the God of Destruction
and Shakti, the Hindu Goddess of creation, 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 reverse the invocation of the Hindu gods:
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
And now, as the circle is
the symbol of the earth and the sun and the
Shakti and Shiva
|Summary:||Reeling from the loss of their future son Chris, an overprotective Piper and Barbas-obsessed Leo are forced by Phoebe and Paige to attend a Hindu wedding, where they inadvertently receive the powers of the Hindu's Ultimate Lovers, Shakti, the Goddess of Creation and her lover, Shiva, the God of Destruction. In order to save the universe from destruction, Phoebe and Piper must keep Leo and Piper from consummating their love. Meanwhile, Leo's obsession with vanquishing Barbas clouds his judgement, and a disembodied creature tricks him into killing an Elder. Feeling out of sorts, Phoebe decides to take a sabbatical from her advice column and is shocked to learn that her replacement is a guy, Leslie St. Claire, whom she is attracted to due to the spell on Piper and Leo. Paige, upset over the Magic School closing, decides to fight to keep it open.|
