*Shaktipat is the transfer of spiritual energy from the teacher to the student in order to awaken the kundalini.  The kundalini is a source of divine energy that exists in every human being.  When awakened, the kundalini energy supports our spiritual evolution, bringing us closer to knowing and merging with our True Self.
