Hinduism - Who Is Mena In Hindu Mythology?

 


In Hindu mythology, the goddess Parvati's mother and the wife of the lesser deity Himalaya.

When Parvati declares her wish to marry the deity Shiva, Mena christens her daughter Uma with the exclamation "U Ma!" ("Oh, don't!").

The Shiva Purana describes Mena's first dissatisfaction with her unusual son-in-law, but then goes on to describe Shiva as the perfect husband, since he is entirely committed to his wife.
