Douglas Harper's Etymology Dictionary
1799, from Sanskrit, "female sexual principle as an object of veneration," literally "vulva, womb."
n. The female sexual organs, or a symbol of them, especially as an object of veneration within certain types of Hinduism, Buddhism, and other cultures.
Yoni ( , literally "vagina" or "womb") is the symbol of the goddess Shakti or Devi in Hinduism. Within Shaivism, the sect dedicated to the god Shiva, the yoni symbolizes his consort. The male counterpart of the yoni is the lingam. Their union represents the eternal process of creation and regeneration. Since the late 19th century, some have interpreted the yoni and the lingam as aniconic representations of the vulva and a phallus respectively.
