is the divine force, manifesting to destroy demonic forces
and restore balance. Every God in Hinduism has his Shakti
and without that energy they have no power. Lakshmi
is the energy of Vishnu. Parvati
is energy of Shiva. Shakti is also
called Devi or mahadevi, assuming different roles as Sati,
Parvati, Durga and Kali.
So Shakti is the mother goddess, the source of all, the universal
principle of energy, power or creativity. The worship of Shakti as this energy
is the main objective of Tantra
Yoga. Shakti is inseparable from the one who beholds her, the Shakti-man,
the masculine principle or Universal father. Shakti-man is called Brahman by the
writers of the Upanishads. In the Tantric tradition he is called Shiva.
play of female energy has no beginning and no end. Although it is restless, the
energy moves through alternating periods of motion and rest, during which order
is re-established. Tantra believes that as long as the phenomenal world exists,
it is the Universal mother who is the creator, preserver and destroyer. Thus Shakti
should be worshipped as an aspect of the divine.
The motivating force behind this eternal play
that creates the illusionary world of phenomena is the power
of desire. This desire is present in the one who is without
attributes, the nameless and formless aspect of the divine.
