Adi Shakti means primal (root) female power. It is the creative power of the One manifested as female. Pritam Bhagauti is equivalent.

Akal Purkh = Purusha. The two aspects of the One as manifested "Purusha" (Sirgun) and unmanifested "Prakrti" (nirgun) are an attempt to express in words that the Infinite is both manifested and un-manifested at the same time.

Ek Ong Kaar” — God is One. But although the One is only One, there are two in the One: ONG, the un-manifested Being we call Nirgun or Purusha — the One in everyone and everything, unseen, eternal, indestructible, formless and all pervasive; and KAAR, the manifested (physical) universe of ether, air, earth, fire and water, the five tattvas set in motion by the three gunas (energies) sattva (creation), rajas (preservation), and tamas, (destruction.) The forms we see manifested throughout creation — from elephants to ants, from stars to atoms, this we call Sirgun or Prakriti — the myriad forms of creation. The Tao Te Ching says: “All forms continuously arise from the One and fall back into the One” or, “All things come from God and all things go to God.”
