From Vayu puran,

The kalpas since the original creation were as follows.
(1) Bhava.
(2) Bhuva.
(3) Tapah.
(4) Bhava.
(5) Rambha.
(6) Ritu.
(7) Kratu.
(8) Vahni.
(9) Havyavahana.
(10) Savitra.
(11) Bhuvah.
(12) Oushika.
(13) Kushika.
(14) Gandharva.
(15) Rishabha.
(16) Shadaja.
(17) Marjaliya.
(18) Madhyama.
(19) Vairaja. The great Vairaja Manu was born in this kalpa and his son was the great sage Dadhichi.
(20) Nishada. The race of nishadas (hunters) were created during this period.
(21) Panchama.
(22) Meghavahana. The word megha means cloud and vahana means to bear. In this kalpa, Vishnu adopted the form of a cloud and bore Shiva on his back. It is thus that the kalpa received its name.
(23) Chintaka.
(24) Akuti.
(25) Vijnati.
(26) Mana.
(27) Bhava.
(28) Vrihat.

AFAIK, two.  In Sanskrit literature "Chaturbhuj" almost always refers to Vishnu

But when SHiva is represented as Nataraja or Dakshinamoorti he is shown as having four hands.

As Nataraja, he carries a Damaru and  Agni (sometimes deer) in his upper arms. The lower right hand is in the abhaya hasta mudra (palm straight facing the devotee) and the lower left hand points downwards.

As Dakshinamoorthi he carries a rosary (aksharamala) and a flaming torch in his upper arms (representative of knowledge). His left hand is in the chin mudra (index and thumb touching) and the right hand is in the abhaya hasta pose.

Note that a new D&D thread has been launched in JJMD by Minakshi


This is a new one for generic questions about Param Shakti & Adi Shakti - well beyond the scope of Ma Durga as a form of Parvati.

Minakshi, such a great topic should be a sticky or an announcement Smile
