When she has passed through all the Wheels in the body and is fully raised and is in her fully expanded state, she rests within her own infinite being which is the very essence of the Command. In that state of profound rest she is Śāmbhavīśakti, that is, Śambhu's (i.e Siva's) own power merged within him.
