In Hinduism Shakti is defined as (1) Power (2) Absolute Power and (3) Power of the Goddess. In rare instances when a Hindu Order gives someone a "Hindu name" and the first name is Shakti, the Shakti doubles as a noun meaning: "The Power Of".
Shakti as a noun: A cheetah has the Shakti (power) of speed. An bird has the Shakti (power) or flight.

Shakti as a name: A perfect example is the Hindu Satuguru Shakti Ganapati Subramanian. His name would translate to:

(1) Power of the Goddess

(2) Power of Ganapati aka Ganesha who removes obstacles on the spiritual path

(3) Power of Subramanian who bestows knowledge through lively debate

A rectangle faced guy with rectangle glasses who is always so loud and burns your ears. He is also very nerdy in some situations in school. Also, most Shaktis are hated by English teachers because he always disrupts the class.
"Who is that loud annoying dude?"

"Oh, just don't mind about him. He's a Shakti."

The reverse of the shocker. Is achieved by putting two in the stink and one in the pink.
Instead of the shocker, my girlfriend decided to change things up a bit, and let me give her the shakti.

Sexual energy. Shakti is a word new age hippies use because they're too politically correct to just say they're horny.
When I look at you with your dreadlocks and smell your patchouli I feel Shakti energy.

1. Invoking the spiritual power of Kali, the Hindu goddess of creation, preservation, destruction, fear and death. It is referred to a quote in the movie "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom".

2. A common formula to repel mosquitoes.
"Kali Ma Shakti de"

1. Doesn't work.

2. Works quite well. Always better when used with karate moves. Please try it and report to us.

Literally "Mother Kali, give me Strength!"

Repeated as a mantra by the creepy priest Mola Ram in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, who thrusts his fist into people's chests and pulls out their still beating hearts before tossing them into giant lava pits.

Kali is also venerated in real life Hinduism as a death goddess, though generally not as the murderous cult depicted in the movie. Kali is also regarded as a deity of eternal energy, annihilation, time and change.
Mola Ram: Kali Ma Shakti De!
Short Round: He no nuts, he's crazy!
