The Microsoft Encarta dictionary (the version approved to be used on windows) has various definition for power but I will quote verbatim the most captivating ones.

|2.||strength: physical force or strength|
|3.||control and influence: control and influence over other people and their actions|
|4.||political control: the political control of a country, exercised by its government or leader|
Different folks have different definitions for the concept of power.
Power to a politician would probably mean the incumbent governor or president or probably the ruling party.
To the religious folks, POWER is best displayed in terms of SIGNS and WONDERS.
To a Buddhist, the height of power is BUDDHA himself.
