Jai Maa Maharani MahaLaxmi
The Goddess Maa
Shakti is the ultimate creative power of the universe. Shakti creates,
she is not created. To be able to tap into this creative power is one
of the goals of yoga and tantra. The realization of this power in us
leads to freedom from limitation and he awakening of a higher life.
pulsating, vibrating, throbbing creating power or force. These
vibrations create the universe, the Big Bang, and all names and forms.
These vibrations are represented as mantras, and when a series of
sounds, a garland of letters, is infused with Shakti, the sound is
transformed into a potent tool that can awaken the higher mind and
reveal knowledge which leads to higher experience.
awesome and wonderful creative power of Shakti is our own life-force,
bursting with potential. Shakti powers our body-mind, all of our
perception, cognition, thoughts, behaviours, desires, drives,
feelings, experience and humanity.
Shakti is also
the force that liberates us from individual limitation and takes us to
higher levels of awareness and experience; transpersonal levels of
Shakti as the Goddess
Shakti is often translated as ‘Goddess’. From the yoga-tantra
perspective of inner experience, what is implied by the word Goddess
is not religious or theological doctrine. The goddesses within
yoga-tantra are extremely subtle creative luminous principles and are
generally beyond our perception. They are beyond normal social human
experience and beyond the capacity of the little mind to cognise.
tantra provide practices which enable us to develop higher awareness
to more directly cognise and experience these subtle forces. This
results in direct experience of Shakti, a direct experience of our
self which is a transforming and life-affirming. Consciously touching
our own inner depths unleashes energy and strength. We become
connected to abilities and skills that we do not usually tap.
The forms of
the goddesses are symbolic, mythic and archetypal representations of
Shakti. We can study these forces through many different methods. For
example, we can translate the word Shakti into a western psychological
context so that we can better understand how these forces operate in
To study the
manifestation of Shakti within us and to develop a relationship with
Shakti is to develop true psycho-spiritual health. To ignore the
forces within us or deny them is to allow the powerful energies of our
own being to become unruly, negative or even destructive drives which
are capable of reeking havoc.
This is why,
in the Indian pantheon, Shakti is said to be divided into two main
groups of forces: the light, gentle and benign goddesses who are easy
to approach, which include the goddesses Lakshmi, Saraswati, and
Parvati, and the dark and fierce goddesses, which include Durga, Kali,
Chandi and Chinnamasta. We are taught that we should not approach
these terrifying aspects of the goddess without a great deal of
psychological preparation, lest we are burned by their awesome power
and energy. An analogy of this is that we should not play with fire or
electricity until we are old and wise enough to know how to handle
What is Shakti?
is a concept that should be understood as part of a three-fold power,
the three-fold nature of the goddess.
Shakti, again, is divine power and
Shakti works in tandem with maya and
prakrti. Maya is illusion, the illusory power of the goddess. Shakta
theology sees this as a positive, creatively potent illusory power,
rather than a crafty, deceptive power. Prakrti is nature, or the
material manifestation of maya and
shakti. Prakrti is both the body of
the goddess, and all other material forms, as these are part of her
In addition to the concepts of
shakti, maya, and prakrti, a fourth concept comes into play
in terms of the nature and function of a goddess. This fourth concept is
or divine play. The purpose of líla is to bring pleasure through play.
The four aspects of the goddess work together in the following way: The
goddess creates (shakti)
all the material forms (prakrti as the goddess herself) with the
illusion that these forms have an existence apart from her (maya) for
the purpose of her own divine pleasure (líla).
