Kali Mantra 108 :
Goddess Kali, the utmost compassionate amongst all of the types of “Devi”. Because the Goddess of Liberation, she and her counterpart God “Shiva” bestow moksha or liberation to their devotees by eradicating the phantasm of the ego.
The ego trembles with worry on the fearsome type of Goddess Kali, whereas a mature soul who engages in non secular practices to take away the phantasm of ego will see the compassionate type of Mom Kali who overflowing with incomprehensible love for her youngsters.
Mom Kali can be some of the misunderstood goddesses of all. By not understanding the story behind Mom Kali it’s straightforward to misread Her iconography. In the identical manner one might say that Christianity is a faith of loss of life, destruction and cannibalism wherein the practitioners drink the blood of Jesus and eat his flesh. In fact, we all know this isn’t the correct understanding of the communion ritual.
Mom Kali wears a garland of skulls and a skirt of dismembered arms owing to the truth that the ego arises out of identification with the physique. In reality we’re beings of spirit and never flesh. Due to this fact liberation can solely come up when our attachment to the physique detaches. Therefore the garland and skirt are trophies worn by Her, to represent having liberated Her youngsters from attachment to the restricted physique.
Kali holds a sword and a freshly severed head dripping blood. Because the story goes, this represents a terrific battle wherein she destroyed the demon Raktabija. Her black pores and skin represents the womb of the quantum un-manifest from which all of creation arises and into which all of creation will finally dissolve.
Kali is depicted as standing on Shiva who lays beneath Her with white pores and skin (in distinction to Her black or generally darkish blue pores and skin). With a blissful indifferent look, Shiva represents pure formless consciousness of sat-chit-ananda (being-consciousness-bliss) whereas Kali represents “type” eternally supported by the substratum of pure consciousness.
