Episode 3-51: What are the “God” and “Goddess” in Us?

Two Open Doors

Dec 17 2023 • 9 mins

In Tantric cosmology, the universe is created and filled by two inseparable deities:  Shiva and Shakti.  Shiva is seen as the embodiment of masculinity, while Shakti embodies the feminine.  Shiva manifests the state of being in existence, which focuses on the static aspect of existing.  In contrast, Shakti manifests the flow of energy that animates everything in existence; that role is fundamentally dynamic.

Contemporary people who have a tantric perspective on life find Shiva and Shakti very relevant to their daily lives.  In this episode, we’ll consider how the spirits of the “god” and “goddess” play out in our life.
