Dark Goddess. Reproduced from Dakinshawar Kali temple in Calcutta.
Venerated since time immemorial on the banks of the Ganges and throughout India, Kali is the active patroness of the Sacred Source artisan community. She is the Mother who purges us of fear, anger, jealousy and grief, then nurses us back to balance in the ultimate act of soul-healing.
Beneath her frightening appearance lies the truth that life, though sometimes fraught with suffering, is rooted in joy. Invoke her and she will bless you with protection and healing.
[Dakinshawar Kali Temple, Calcutta, India.]
