Kali Ma - Kali Ma, called the "Dark Mother," is the Hindu goddess of creation, preservation, and destruction. Also known as the Black Goddess. She is frightening to those who fear death but is loving and patient with those who are not afraid.
Kali by Raja Ravi Varma. Sanskrit: काली, IPA: [kɑːliː]), also known as Kālikā (Sanskrit: कालिका), is the Hindu goddess associated with empowerment, shakti. She is the fierce aspect of the goddess Durga (Parvati).
This depiction of Kali and Shiva references the human experience of death. Kali, who represents dissolution mates with Shiva, who represents creation. She drives him mad and he forgets who he is. For a time, Shiva is lost. Such is death.
[Kali] She can spiritually hack away at the handcuffs that keep us shackled to the hungry ghosts of the past.There comes a point in the process when you must surrender fully to her healing powers,& let her bring you back cleansed, transformed, whole.
