Kali Mata, also known as Mahakali or Bhadrakali, Kalika, is a Hindu goddess that is the Goddess of ultimate power and time. Kali Mata is considered the fiercest form of goddess Mahadevi or the ultimate reality. Kali is a Sanskrit name that means “she.” She is sometimes called the who’s black’ or “she who’s death,” but she’s also known as Kalika, Kaalratri, Chaturbhuja Kali, Chinnamasta, or Kaushika Kali.

Maa Kali, the embodiment of time, devours all things. Mata is often associated with Shiva. Kali Mata is her female form of Kala. Tie her inseparably with him. He is considered her associate and shakti (force) of Shiva. In large numbers, she to him.

Puranas, and when she appears in these pieces other than Shiva, she expects part to that of Parvati.

While Parvati assuages Shiva, killing his dangerous tendencies, Kali successfully actuates and engages him. Kali incites and empowers him to have destructive tendencies.Maa Kali with the Vedic or traditional Hindu customs from the beginning.

Primarily, she also developed a close relationship with Tantra. Tantric lessons include a variety of ancient stories and society rehearses. These ancestral causes could be more reliable than the Vedic because they are close to the Vedic tradition. She is a picture of Mother Nature in her early stages, creative, sustaining, and eating thus, but she is also loving and generous. She is known as Maa kali or Kali Mata in this section of goodness. Many Hindus worship and respect her in this structure.

Tantric reflection: Kali’s dual nature drives professionals to face the beauty of life and death. One cannot exist without the other. This Goddess is mainly worshipped in eastern and south India, specifically Assam, Kerala, and Kashmir, Bengal – where she is now honored in the yearly festival of Kali Puja—held on the night of a new moon -in the Dakshineswar kali Mata temple and Kalighat Temple in Calcutta, India.

who is kali Mata? What does mean by kali?

Kali Mata, the chief of Maha Vidyas, is a group of 10 Tantric Goddesses representing a different aspect of Parvati/ Shakti.

Kali Mata can be seen primarily in one of two forms, the popular four-armed Mahakali form or the ten-armed Mahakali. She is black in both her conditions.

However, she is Indian art as a blue-colored woman. Her eyes are as intoxicated and full of rage as they are red. Her hair is tiny and messy. Her tongue is lilting, and fangs can sometimes protrude from her mouth. Her skirt from human arms and a garland with human heads. Also shown is a tiger skin. A jackal and serpents accompany the tiger-skin model while she stands on calm and prostrate Shiva with her right foot forward.

These serpents symbolize the popular Dakshinamarga or right-handed path. The blood on Rakta Bija’s head was dripping. Jackals drink it while Rakta Bija holds it in her hands, preventing it from falling to the ground.

Mahakali’s ten-armed form depicts her as shining like a natural blue stone. She has ten heads, ten feet, and three eyes per head. She with ornaments. All her limbs. The Kalika Purana says that Kali has no connection to Shiva. Kali Mata has a calm dark complexion and is as beautiful as riding a lion. Four-armed, holding a blue lotus and a sword, her right hand in Varabhaya, her hair loose and unrestrained.

Maa Kali’s birth story

In her earliest appearances, Maa Kali with violence on the battlefields for the gods. Legendary battle with demon Raktabija. Mother Durga manifests Kali Mata to handle a situation that has gotten out of control. Every drop of blood

Raktabija’s blood becomes a deadly fighting clone. But Kali Mata transforms the battle and defeats him, draining his blood before it touches anything.

He then eats his replicas. It is used in this story to take decisive action when it is necessary. Dark deeds must match dark deeds. You must demonstrate resolve – these are not attributes often associated with the archetypal women of the west.

Another version of Maa Kali’s birth is when Parvati sheds her dark skin, becoming Kali. Parvati, however, is still called Gauri (the Fair One) in this version. This story emphasizes Kali’s blackness, which is symbolic of eternal darkness and has the potential to destroy as well as create.

A third version of the story saw men and gods by Daruka, who women could only ever kill. Parvati was then asked by the gods how to deal with this troublesome demon. Parvati responded by jumping down Shiva’s throat. Shiva had swallowed Halahala many years before, the poison that had formed from the churning oceans during creation. It had threatened to pollute our world. Parvati, a combination of the poison remaining in Shiva’s throat and Kali, was transformed into Kali. Kali Mata quickly escaped from Shiva’s throat, taking the form of Kali and sending Daruka home.

Kali Meaning

Kali can turn into two meanings. One is the feminine form of time; the other is the masculine noun Kala. Means ‘the changing nature. That rotates the cycle between life and death.” The second meaning refers to a woman with dark skin. Her other names mean:

1. Kaal-Ratri(Kaalratri)- the darkest black night

2. Kalika- The dark-skinned one

What Does Goddess Kali Image Symbolize?

Kali Mata’s Color-Her dark color symbolizes the infinite.
Kali is her name and refers to her black color. It also represents the infinite. It also refers to the concept of time. Gives us an insight into her function. Maya’s processes are time, space, causation, and so on. As we all know, time is the all-destroyer. Time is the only thing that can save this world from its destruction.

Her three eyes represent knowledge about the past, present, and future. Kali Mata is a goddess of dualities. She has four arms. Her right arm represents the benign side—these arms with fearlessness and boons. The terrible aspect of her figure is described by her left arm holding a sword, a severed head, and the majority of her body. We see her role of causation, creating and destroying, and the dual experience of this world. Everything flows from her, and everything returns to her.

The red part of her tongue that sticks out is rajas, which refers to the quality or activity. Her white teeth, which onto her tongue, signify sattva (the quality of calmness). Both are indicative of peace and being in control of activity. The garland of fifty skulls represents the fifty Sanskrit letters.

Her upper left hand with a sword that cuts through our ignorance or bondage. Wisdom is said to be bestowed by the severed head located in the lower lefthand.

Kali’s nakedness is an indication that she is a transparent being who is free from any illusions.

Maa Kali is the Absolute aspect of God, and Shiva represents Kali. Kali also represents Shakti, the cosmic power that creates creation.

Why Lord Shiva is Under Feet of Kali Mata

Kali Mata is dark in complexion with red eyes. One of her hands carries a sword (Khadga), and the other hand holds the head of a demon. The two different indicators to bless Her devotees. This Goddess form is even more powerful and divine because she wears a garland with the heads of the demons she killed. The Goddess’s tongue is always out; you will see this in addition to her fierce appearances. It is important to note that the Goddess is walking over Lord Shiva’s chest.

The story behind this episode of Goddess Kali walking over Lord Shiva is interesting. Would you like to find out why Kali stepped on Shiva? Continue reading: Story of Rakta Bej. Once upon a time, there was a powerful demon called Rakta beej. He had a boon that allowed him to duplicate himself whenever his blood touched the Earth. The Gods could not bring down the devil due to this boon. Shakti, Goddess Durga, was summoned to take down the demon.

The Goddess, armed with all her weapons, charged at the monster. The monster continued multiplying after the Goddess wounded him with her sword. The puddles that fell on Earth resulted in massive armies of Rakta Beej. The Devi became angry and took on the fierce form of Kali. The Devi then went on to kill the demon with a sword in her hand. She would drink his blood. Soon, she had defeated the entire army of Rakta Bej, leaving only the true Rakta beej. She then killed him, and she drank his blood until he died. After this, the Goddess was driven mad by bloodlust.

After the incident, she began to dance the dance of destruction but forgot that she had killed the demon. After that, she continued to kill innocents. The Gods were worried by this and sought Lord Shiva’s help. Only Shiva was able to stop Kali from this point.

Lord Shiva sat down among the bodies of the Goddess dancing and laid down.Maa Kali accidentally stepped on Shiva, and She soon realized her mistake. The moment Her tongue swelled with embarrassment, she calmed herself down, and her tongue quickly returned to normal. She regretted that Her bloodlust had prevented her from recognizing Her husband. The destruction when She returned to Her original form. The supremacy of Nature over Man by Shiva lying at Kali’s feet. It shows that even powerful forces like Lord Shiva are inert without Kali and Shakti. Kali is walking on Shiva’s chest.

Some other Forms of Mother Goddess Kali

Different devotees worship different forms of Maa Kali. Sometimes, she can be four-armed or ten-armed. Sometimes, she is either black or blue. These are some of the most famous mother goddess forms.

1. Kaalratri – One of the significant forms of Mother Goddess – Kali (Mahakali), Bhadrakali, and Bhairavi, and the seventh form of the Navadurga (9 types of drugs). Kalaratri is the subject of a pooja (ritual) on the seventh day of Navratri. 

She is the protector who cleanses away darkness or nights of a great battle. Kaal and Ratri are both words that refer to time. She is the one who removes darkness and destroys ignorance. Her power is unimaginable and can destroy human acts through the power of time (Kaal). Kaalratri, also known as Shubhamkari, is “good-doing.” The Hindu epic Mahabharata, located on the battlefield of Kurukshetra, contains the Goddess Kali’s appearance. She removes the spirits of the dead and worries. Kaalratri carries a scimitar (symbolizing power) in her left upper hand and a thorn-like weapon (symbolizing time that washes away) in her left lower hand. Her correct upper and lower indicators show Avaya (the gestures representing fearlessness and boon) and Vara mudra.

2. Vama Kali: If the Kali stands out with her left foot and holds the scimitar, it is the awful form of Mother, the Vama Kali, or Smashan Kali ( Kali at the cremation ground). Smashan Kali, the chief Goddess of Tantric texts, is Smashan Kali. To bring about rapid success, she is worshipped on the cremation ground by tantric. She is not honored in the household.

3. Bhadrakali-Bhadrakali is the gentlest form of the Goddess. The letter Bha’ is a delusion or ‘Maya in Devanagiri, while ‘Dra’ refers to ‘the greatest. Bhadra Kali is Mahamaya Kali, and Bhadra Kali is Mahamaya Kali. Markendaya Purana says she is the same as Durga but has ten arms. Bhadrakali, another name for goddess Durga, is mentioned in Mahabharata. There are many temples dedicated to Bhadra kali in south India.

The extraordinary graceful and majestic Kali form here. The Goddess with ‘vina,’ a type of lyre in one hand, a lotus, and several others in her crown. Her face is round with a protruding nose, lotus eyes, and a large forehead. She carries a pestle, lotus, chopper, and sword on the right. The conch, goad, and noose are on her left. Her figure is elegantly dressed and bejeweled.

4. Rakshakali-In cases of natural disasters, she is called the protector Rakshakali. Rakshakali, usually two-armed with the left leg forward, is placed on Shiva’s chest to represent her protecting form. She to protect against floods, epidemics, famine, and earthquakes. The Raksha Kali puja, performed on new moon days, is also done on the day the idol. The model is submerged in the river just before sunrise on the same night.

5. Maternal Kali – To destroy the world during Samundra Manthan (churning the ocean). Lord Shiva, an eternal god, could only consume the poison. However, the poison he drank in the sea caused him to feel the effects of poison. Kali then took the form of a mother to give Shiva her milk, which helped soothe the results of the poison. Maternal Kali is the name for this form of Kali.

6. Dakshina Kali– This is the most well-known form of the Goddess. Dakshina Kali, a benign goddess, is considered the protector goddess. She is revered in temples as well as by householders. Her devotees believe she is the most accessible form of the Goddess. Dakshinakali is a goddess with four hands. The Upper left hand has a scimitar, and the lower left is a hand with a severed head. The upper right hand has Avaya Mudra, the lower right with Varada Mudra, and the upper left hand has Avaya Mudra.

Krishnananda, the author of Tantrasara and Ramprasad Sen’s teacher, initiated the Dakshina Kali idol. After understanding Kali’s symbolism and iconography, he wanted Kali to be a kind mother. Krishnananda stumbled upon a young woman working as a cowherd one morning. In front of her, her left leg was at her side; she was slanting downward. Her complexion was dark. And she was holding her hands up as she raised them. The woman was shocked to discover that Krishnananda had noticed her and felt ashamed. She pressed her tongue, which lurched with her teeth. Krishnananda Agamavagisha saw the woman’s appearance and considered it to be the image of Dakshina Kali.

Dakshinakali can be either blue or black. Due to Shyam (Krishna)’s having the same complexion, the blue Dakshina Kali form is Shyama Kali.

7. Mahakali-Mahakali, which means Great Kali, is a Great Time. She fights against all enemies, human limitations, and death. In Hinduism, she is called the Goddess of Shiva. She symbolizes all she does with ten heads and ten arms. She is the warrior mom. The ten weapons she holds by Hindu Devas (Deities) signify that the power of the different Gods is only possible through Her grace.
