Kali Maa is a Hindu goddess who brings the death of the ego as the illusory self-centered view of reality. She has a dark complexion also know as the color black. Black absorbs every other color and is the complexion representing the divinity of God going back to the ancient times. Symbolic of her color and the ability to devour everything. Such as aspects of the human lower-self ego, anger, lust, and unpure desires all get converted into ashes. By the virtue of fire or tapa (kundalini fire). Kali Maa is often depicted stepping on Lord Shiva she is the power and matter (nature) he is the witness or the seer (To see what the future holds through supernatural insight.) Shiva and Kali grant liberation by removing the illusion of the ego. We are the eternal I AM ( A divine spiritual being having a physical experience.) and not just simply the body. With her counterpart Lord Shiva the destroyer, they are the destroyers of unreality. Kali is one of the manifestations of the Goddess Devi Jaganmata (Jaganmata meaning mother of the world.) Devi is the sum of all manifestations or forms of the Mother. Other forms are Lakshmi who is the Hindu goddess of wealth, fortune and prosperity. Another form is Durga which means she who takes us beyond all difficulties. She is the divine energy that protects the soul from duality, adversity, and opposition, known and unknown. As Durga-Tara she delivers us across the turbulent ocean of ignorance to the radiant shores beyond all darkness. She carries us overall dangers like a ship across the sea a Goddess of Strength and Justice who brings compassion, peace, calm and order to the chaos, destruction, and conflict in any situation. She is born from the power of tapas, the wholehearted concentration of our aspiration to immutable truth. She is the spiritual fire on Earth who removes all impurities for the soul to shine.
Devotional ceremonies to the Goddess Kali Maa involve cannabis ingestion and ritual wholistic sex, which is directed at raising the Kundalini energy from the base of the spine up into the higher centers of the brain. Cannabis, in all its forms, has been intricately associated and linked with Goddess worship in many cultures throughout the world, and throughout history reconnecting us to our ancient past that can not simply be forgotten or misunderstood.
