Kali is considered to be the most fully realized of all the Dark Goddesses, a great and powerful black earth Mother Goddess capable of terrible destruction and represents the most powerful form of the female forces in the Universe. Worship of the Goddess Kali is largely an attempt to appease Her and avert Her wrath. Her followers give her offerings of blood and flesh, which is important in Her worship. As mistress of blood, She presides over the mysteries of both life and death. Regardless, Her followers still find Her to be a powerful warrior Goddess and find Her greatest strength to be that of a protector.
Kali is not always thought of as a Dark Goddess. Despite Kali’s origins in battle, She evolved to a full-fledged symbol of Mother Nature in Her creative, nurturing and devouring aspects. Some people see Kali as a satanic demon probably because of tales of her being worshipped by dacoits and other such people indulging evil acts. It is easy to misinterpret Her iconography. Rather, She is referred to as a great and loving primordial Mother Goddess in the Hindu tantric tradition. In this aspect, She is referred to as Kali Ma, and millions of Hindus revere Her as such.
Of all the forms of Devi, She is the most compassionate because She provides moksha to Her children. She is the counterpart of Shiva. They are the destroyers of unreality. The ego sees Mother Kali and trembles with fear because the ego sees in Her its own eventual demise. A person who is attached to his ego will not be receptive to Mother Kali and she will appear in a fearsome form. 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 incomprehensible love for Her children.! 👅💀👁💀👅
