The energies of the Goddess Kali is intense whenever evil crosses its limit; She ruins everything related to Asuras (evil).

According to Shaktism, goddess Shakti is the one who is known as the Supreme Being, the primary sources of all type of energies. She represents the dynamic forces of nature.

Every person who follows Santana Dharma believes in shakti energy with great devotion.

There are many interesting facts which makes Goddess Shakti one of the most exact divinity.

  • The Great Divine Mother has no physical form; she manifests herself into different classes as per her provisions.

  • Goddess Shakti embodies the Lord Shiva's inner strength. In the highest form, Shiva and Shakti are integral as Ardhanarishvara.

Goddess Kali and Shiva

Once upon a time when goddess Kali destroyed Asuras ( demons) who were threatening Humanity.

At that moment Mahakali furious form became catastrophic, everyone including demigods started getting panicked by the wrath of Goddess.

Deities went to Mount Kailash, the abode of Shiva and requested Shiva to control the rage of Goddess Kali.


Shiva himself is Mahakaal; he saw goddess stepping towards him and requested the goddess to control the anger. But goddess kali anger was too mighty that she didn't notice Shiva presence on her way, and kept moving towards Shiva.

Maheshwar Shiva was the only hope of the deities, therefore to calm goddess anger Shiva lay down on the path on goddess Kali.

Goddess Kali reached near Shiva and kept her one foot on Shiva's chest.

Without seeing who is laying down to her feet; she immediately realized that a terrible mistake happened by her . Divine mother red tongue came out due to her mistake realization.

She saw her foot over the chest of Shiva and get overwhelmed by that.

Tears start falling from the big eyes of the goddess Mahakali.

Mahakaal convinces Mahakali that nothing wrong happened and it was a necessary act to calm down her anger.

After all goddess, Shakti is the Loving consort of the Parmeshwara Shiva.
