_ r animates and witnesses the creation of Adi Shakti. These 24 tattwas are:-

Buddhi- The faculty of Perception or Intelligence, also called Mahat, which gives rise to:-Aham-kara- 'I am'-ness, ego, conception of indivuality. From this arises:-5 Tan-matras -The 5 subtle elements, which give rise to the 5 gross elements and are the objects of the 5 senses, gandha (smell)-earth, rasa (taste)-water, rupa (form-the object of sight)-fire, sparsha (touch)-air and shabda (sound)-ether. 5 Bhutas The 5 gross elements- Earth, air, fire, water and ether. 5 organs of action- Speech, hands, feet, reproduction and excretion. 5 organs of sense- Ears, skin, eyes, tongue, nose. Manas- The heart/mind, psyche, thinking/feeling. A-vyakta- The 'Unmanifested' part of the Adi Shakti, the KundalinI, as the pure desire to reunite with the Purusha.
