Emergence of Goddess Shakti

देवीशक्त्युद्भवो नाम षोडशोऽध्यायः
Emergence of the Goddess Shakti Chapter 16

वायुरुवाच |
Vayudeva said (to the sages)

इत्युक्त्वा परमोदारं स्वभावमधुरं वचः |
ससर्ज वपुषो भागाद्देवीं देववरो हरः || 6 ||
Having said that (to Lord Brahma “I am very satisfied; I will give you what you wish”) in his naturally sweet speech, highly generous, Lord Shiva, the best of the deities, created Goddess (Uma) from a part (of his) body.

Shloka 13 of Chapter 3 of Shatarudra Samhita is very similar.

इत्युक्त्वा परमोदारं स्वभावमधुरं वचः |
पृथक्चकार वपुषो भागाद्देवीं शिवां शिवः ||

यस्यां न खलु विद्यंते जन्ममृत्युजरादयः |
या भवानी भवस्यांगात्समाविरभवत्किल || 8 ||

That Bhavani whose birth, death, old age, etc. does not exist (is the one) who appeared/emerged really from a part of the body of Lord Shiva.
