Origins of "Shak-ti" (the name)


The origin of the Jedi Master's name are rooted further in the Force than we ever knew.

I'm currently producing a printed piece for an upcoming Indian classical music concert. While doing a search on the net for info for this I came across the name of another concert and musical group called "Remembr Shakti." Of course my curiosity got the better of me so I looked up the group then the word "shakti" on it's own. 

It turns out that the word "shakti" means: from Sanskrit shak - "to be able," meaning sacred force or empowerment, is the primordial cosmic energy and represents the dynamic forces that move through the entire universe.

For a further comprehensive understanding of the root of the word go here:

I thought this was fascinating. It can't be coincidence considering the "Force" within Star Wars and it being a Jedi Master's name. So someone did their homework when coming up with a name for the character.

Cool huh?


I remember hearing a little about this name origin before. Interesting indeed. I only recently learned that a dagoba or dagaba is a Buddhist shrine! ;D
