Shaktimaan received powers from seven gurus who trained and blessed him with “yogic shakti which was natural power.” He was the chosen warrior against evil by siddha gurus of a cult named Suryavanshi. They are followers of the star Sun. As part of training, he trained with Kundalini Yoga to awake the 7 chakras of body and gain ‘supernatural’ powers from them. To gain complete control over his powers he performed the ritual of death. However, this did not cause death but made him more alive than when he was a normal man. He also performed Yajna in which he entered the fire himself and dissolved his body in fire. Then, the five elements of life, i.e. fire, wind, water, earth, sky revived his body giving him special powers from them. Thus after leaving his mortal body he was given a superhuman form to fight against the evil in the world as Shaktimaan. After Shaktimaan was created he set out to destroy his archenemy Kilvish. But, as the Mahaguru (Tom Alter) explained, Kilvish can only be defeated after evil is destroyed. Shaktimaan’s mission is to destroy the sin within people, not the sinned people. Shaktimaan’s adventures show him pursuing justice and saving his friends while Kilvish and his minions plot to defeat him.
