Definition - What does Shakti mean?
Shakti is the Hindu goddess responsible for creation and all dynamic forces in the universe. She is also called The Great Divine Mother or The Universal Mother. In Tantra yoga and meditation, yogis contemplate Goddess Shakti to understand and access the shakti energy, power and creativity in themselves and the universe. This allows one to view their powers as expressions of the universe rather than the ego.
