Kali comes from the Sanskrit root word Kal which means time. Kali is a Goddess of death and she brings the death of the ego as the illusory self centered view of reality. It is true that both Kali and Shiva are said to inhabit cremation grounds and devotees often go to these places to meditate. This is not to worship death but rather to overcome the “I-am-the-body” idea by reinforcing the awareness that the body is a temporary condition. Shiva and Kali are said to inhabit these places because it is our attachment to the body that gives rise to the ego. Of all forms of Devi, she is most compassionate because she provides moksha or liberation to her children. She is the counterpart of Shiva the destroyer. They are the destroyers of unreality. A mature soul who engages in spiritual practice to remove the illusion of the ego sees Mother Kali as very sweet, affectionate, and overflowing with love for her children. She is the fast track, often on a bumpy road, to problem solution and spiritual advancement. When called by mantras that carry her vibrations, Kali responds with a direct power that often leads right through some cherished part of our ego attachments. Call on Kali for true spiritual advancement by the most powerful and direct route. Her forward moving forceful energy will bring new life to stagnant projects or ruined goals. She represents rebirth, cycles, joy, courage, hope, cleansing, and change. Invocation: Om Krim Kalikayai Namah (108x, 40 days) This mantra brings relief from all kinds of problems, no matter how complex.
