Daiviprakriti is a term used in the Bhagavad Gita (9.13). It is defined by H. P. Blavatsky as the conscious energy of the Logos, or its power and light.[1] According to her, Daiviprakriti represents the feminine aspect of energy of the Logos:

In the Esotericism of the Vedantins, Daiviprakriti, the Light manifested through Eswara, the Logos, is at one and the same time the Mother and also the Daughter of the Logos or Verbum of Parabrahmam.[2]

This feminine energy give rise to Fohat which, although androgynous in essence, it is frequently taken as the male aspect of cosmic energy:

Fohat [is] the “Son of the Son,” the androgynous energy resulting from this “Light of the Logos,” and which manifests in the plane of the objective Universe as the hidden, as much as the revealed, Electricity—which is LIFE.[3]

According to Blavatsky, Daiviprakriti is also the seventh shakti--the synthesis of the other six.[4]
