Kali, Dark Mother Goddess of Destruction

Let yourself be slain by her sweet blade. Let her eternal flame of truth burn away your ego. Then, we shall dance on the ashes together.


http://www.exoticindiaart.com/kali.htm


A most excellent site on the Goddess. A good read for those interested in Goddess magick, Cultural studies, or Kali herself.

The sheer diversity of the figure of Kali is incredible, and it saddens me that so many consider her only as the popular western version of the goddess of destruction. I'll have to read that site in depth when I have more time, it looked like a very informative study.

A side note; did you know that Calcutta is named for Kali?

o goody! Another whom appreciates Kali. Yes, it is true that there are few whom understand the many forms of Kali. It was her will that i tell all i can of her and i do so willingly. Without destruction there can be no no new beginings. The more who know of her the more power she has, for a god is only as strong as his followers.

Kali is more than destruction, though. Shiva without Shakti is but a corpse.

I notice you bare the fool card, also an aspect of Kali. The egoless one. Zero, the nothing where all numbers meet.

I could kick Kali's ass.

The wanderer of the wastes, searching where no other will go, appearing destined to perish.

You know, all this "Kali is bad, glory in her badness" is fundamentally stupid because Kali isn;t supposed to be bad. Kali is a necessary part of a smooth-running equilibrium. It's not like the heavens are in a constant struggle to put down the depredations of Ms. Evil Kali. Kali is just as sacred and benevolent as Shiva, Shakti or Vishnu.

Kali and Shakti are different representations of the same entity.

You know nothing at all about Viking magical tradition, do you?

That was m y point exactly. Only in the void of a mothers womb can a new life form begin. Kali is the personification of the very absence of space in which all life is existant. She is ever working to undo the process of nature which brought about the separation of being from the unbeing. I follow her path because i am at a point in my life where i must delve into the abyss of my lifeform tearing it from inside out so that i may meteamorphasize into a new enlightened creature. But first, the destruction of the false self that society has molded for me. She is only bad if you consider destruction bad. But there is no good and bad in nature, only change.
