SHAKTI

Hindu Energy Goddess

Also known as Sakti

Girl Power! The personification of female energy

She is the Divine Energy running through the cosmos. This is the creative charge that powers the universe. Of course this energy is female — what else did you expect?

Although more of a personification than a deity, Shakti is female in nature so kindly refer to her as ‘she’. It is always best to get your pronouns right.

Shakti gives infinite energy to the Hindu goddesses, and even mortal women can benefit from her bountiful power. You can tap into her supply by performing austerities or exercising your creative energies. No special chargers or adapters required.

Shakti — always a force to be reckoned with.
