Goddess of Strength, Time & Death!
Kali is the Hindu goddess (or Devi) of death, time and doomsday.
Maa Kali is one of the fierce forms of goddess Durga, the consort of Lord Shiva , the destroyer in the Hindu Trinity. The typical image of Maa Kali has a protruded tongue and a garland of skulls carrying deadly weapons creating terror in the wicked and evil people. However, Kali is so benign and merciful to her devotees and she protects them from all harm bestowing prosperity and success.
The ultimate purpose of the Kali incarnation is to destroy the evil doers and demons who could not be killed even by the gods. She is invincible and could pose a severe threat to the powerful and wicked demons. As Maa Kali emanated in response to the prayers of the gods and the sages, all the gods gave their powers and weapons to Maa Kali to assist her in her divine mission. Therefore, the powers of Maa Kali are beyond compare. She can just vanquish the evil doers in no time and save the devotees from all harm.
Maa Kali's other name is Parashakti or the highest power that has created the universe, protects it and destroys it ultimately. Therefore, she represents all the three divine acts together. Maa Kali Mantra is so powerful. It is so simple to learn and chant.
It contains the Beej or the seed sound and thus can create positive vibrations installing confidence, hope and courage in the minds of the chanters.
