1) humans(not avatara) like Meera, Andal etc viewed God as husband/male beloved(premi) and worshipped/loved Him as such.

2) as per this link https://www.speakingtree.in/blog/krishna-is-husband-of-everyone , krishna is jagatpati and husband of everyone(male or female)

3) Ramakrishna and countless others worshipped God in the form of mother.

now, my question is that:

a) whether there is any human(not avatara) , who worshipped/loved God/Goddess as "feminine beloved"/"divine feminine beloved? ie, is there any example where "bhakt relationship to God/Goddess , where human bhakt(male/female) is premi and God/Goddess is feminine premikaa"

b) Is this bhav(emotion towards God/Goddess as premika) explicitly allowed/disallowed as per religious text? If not allowed, then why?

    Sensations or emotions are not love. I guess you need to know what is love. Love is not possible with thoughts as thoughts are not love. love is found in the realm of thoughtlessness. Mar 2, 2018 at 17:32
  • "Pati" does not mean Husband. "Pati" means "LORD" or "Ruler" , this is why Krishna is called JagatPati. Shiva-Parvati are together called "Namo JagatPatibhyaam" in Uma Maheshvara Stuti, so does it mean "Husbands of World" or "Ruler of World"? Of course RULER. PM Modi is RaashtraPati so has he become "Husband" of all Indians, "male or female". NO

  • For Devi Paraambika Parvati Maheshaani Mahakali and her other forms, Shiva has Himself said That She is only Mother and only Mother. Brahma got in trouble when was enchanted by nrity of Mother Parvati. Kuvera who was actually a beautiful Deva, became "Kuvera"(ugly looking) , as he was fascinated at Mother Parameshvari.
