Shiva and Shakti
Shiva is dormant, the unmanifested, the formless, but it is the source from where everything comes and everything dissolves. Shiva is the eternal Tao.
Shakti is energy, the manifested, anything that has form, the sun, you, living and non-living. Shakti binds us or frees us. Shakti is knowledge. When Shakti merges into Shiva, we are freed. We return to the source. Moksha or Samadhi is commonly referred names of freedom.
