"Energy, ability, strength, effort, power, capability"[1]) is the primordial cosmic energy, female in aspect, and represents the dynamic forces that are thought to move through the universe.[2] She is thought of as creative, sustaining, as well as destructive, and is sometimes referred to as auspicious source energy.

In Shaktism, Adi Parashakti is worshipped as the Supreme Being. On every plane of creation, energy manifests itself into all forms of matter; these are all thought to be infinite forms of Parashakti.
