The ultimate form of Brahman, “Devourer of Time” (Supreme Deity of Kalikula systems). Mahakali is of a pitch black complexion, darkest than the dark of the Death-Night. She had three eyes, representing the past, present and future. She has shining white, fang-like teeth, a gaping mouth, and her red, bloody tongue hanging from there. She has unbound, disheveled hairs. She wears a garland of human heads around her neck, and on her belt, she was adorned with severed arms and hands as her ornamentation. She has four hands, two of them were empty and two others carried a sword and demon head.
Kali is shown with four arms. In two hands, she
hold a sword and a freshly severed head,
representing the fierce battle in which she
destroyed the demon Raktabija. The other two
hands bless her devotees, granting them
liberation in this life and in the next.
Kali wears a garland of 52 skulls and a skirt of
dismembered arms because the ego comes out of identification with the body. Her black
or dark blue skin represents the womb from which all creation springs forth and into
which all of creation will ultimately return. She is the pure, un-manifested energy, the
Goddess Kali is depicted placing one foot on Lord Shiva, who is pure formless awareness
Sat-Chit-Ananda. Here, Kali represents “form” eternally supported by pure awareness.
