Kali Lecture:
According to the Hindu tradition, we are living in the Kali Age: the time of a resurgence of the divine feminine spirit. It is said that Kali sprang forth from the brow of the Great Goddess Durga during a battle to annihilate demonic male power. Although she is often presented (in her warrior aspect) as cruel and horrific, with her lolling red tongue and necklace of severed heads, Kali is creator and nurturer-the essence of Mother-love and feminine energy (sakti). As Divine Mother, Lotus-goddess, she brings worlds to birth, sustains them and absorbs them, in a never-ending cycle of her own opening and closing.          Ajit Mookerjee, Kali: The Feminine Force Destiny Books
