Kali is the Hindu goddess who transforms life into a fascinating dance of death. She is known as Black Mother Time, Mother Kali, and Kali the Destroyer.
Several famous myths tell just how uncontrollable Kali’s energy is. Once, it was said, she dared to dance with Shiva, the Lord of the Dance. They grew wilder and wilder, more competitive in their dancing, until it seemed the world would shake itself to pieces – and so it will, for beneath all appearances that dance continues. Another time, it is said, Kali fought and killed two demons and celebrated her victory by draining their bodies of blood. Then, drunk with slaughter, she began to dance. Thrilling to the feel of lifeless flesh beneath her naked feet, Kali danced more and more wildly – until she realized that Shiva himself was underneath her and that she was dancing him to death. The god’s tactic slowed Kali’s wildness, but only for the moment, and eventually she will resume the dance that ends the world.
As a Goddess, Kali is eternal. As time, she really is “dancing the world to destruction” because everything eventually crumbles and decays. Her dance goes on, heedless of our protests or pleading.
Take a walk with Kali, dance to her wild tune, and experience her ecstasy and destruction.
