Name : Kali Maa
Once the whole universe was suffering with floods. Water surrounded everything. At that moment, a lotus originated from the Naval of Lord Vishnu
. Lord Brahma was evolved from the lotus. apart from this, some dirt came out from the ears of lord Narayan which later changed into 2 demons, Ketab and Madhu. The demons could not see anything around, other than Lord Brahma.
Seeing lord, the demons ran to kill him. Frightened lord Brahma, worshipped lord Vishnu. By the praising of lord Brahma, the Mahamaya of Brahma which resided as Yognindra in the eyes of Vishnu disappeared and he woke up. Immediately, the 2 devils started fighting with God Vishnu.
Mahamaya changed the ,ind of demons, for the safety of lord. Then, demon said that they were pleased by the fight of lord Vishnu. And, said him to ask anything. Lord Vishnu used the chance properly and asked for the destruction of demons. Devil agreed and is ended all the demons. The one who brain washed the demons is known as ‘Mahakali
Kali took birth from Durga
's forehead as Kal Bhoi Nashini. Kali was created to save the heaven and the earth from the rising brutality of the demons. She went on her way to end the war and kill the demons, along with her two escorts Dakini and Jogini. The whole environment was full of chaos. After killing the demons, Kali made a garland of their hands and wore it around her neck.
Kali Ma, called the "Dark Mother," is the Hindu goddess of creation, preservation, and destruction. Kali Maa (Bengali Kalika), is the Hindu goddess associated with eternal energy. "She who destroys".The name Kali comes from kala, which means black, time, death, lord of death, Shiva. Kali means "the black one". Since Shiva is called Kāla - the eternal time, Kālī, his consort, also means "the Time" or "Death". Kali serves as the archetypal image of the birth-and-death Mother.
The name Kali Ma comes from Kalma, a hunter of tombs and eater of the dead, as she was called in Finland, also called the Black Goddess. European "witches" worshipped her in funeral places, for the same reasons, that the Tantric yogis and dakinis worshipped her in cremation grounds, as Smashana-Kali, Lady of the Dead. Former pagans adored her in cemeteries as the Black Mother Earth, where the Roman tombstones invoked her with the phrase Mater genuit, Mother receipt-the Mother bore me, the Mother took me back.
Kali's most common four armed iconographic image shows each hand carrying variously a sword, a trishul (trident), a severed head and a bowl or kapala catching the blood of the severed head. Two of these hands are holding a sword and a severed head. The Sword signifies Divine Knowledge and the Human Head signifies human Ego which must be slain by Divine Knowledge in order to attain Moksha. The other two hands (usually the right) are in the abhaya and varada (blessing) mudras, which means her initiated devotees or anyone worshiping her with a true heart will be saved as she will guide them here and in the hereafter.
