Svarūpaśakti (स्वरूपशक्ति) refers to:—The Lord’s divine potency, situated in the Lord’s form (svarūpa);also known as cit-śakti, the potency endowed with consciousness. Because this potency is situated in the Lord’s form, it is further known as antaraṅga-śakti, internal potency. Because it is superior to His marginal and external potencies, it is also known as parā-śakti, superior potency. The svarūpa-śakti has three divisions: sandhinī, saṃvit and hlādinī. (cf. Glossary page from Bhajana-Rahasya).
Vaishnava (वैष्णव, vaiṣṇava) or vaishnavism (vaiṣṇavism) represents a tradition of Hinduism worshipping Vishnu as the supreme Lord. Similar to the Shaktism and Shaivism traditions, Vaishnavism also developed as an individual movement, famous for its exposition of the dashavatara (‘ten avatars of Vishnu’).
