Notably, Kali, also known as Dakshina KÄlikÄ, is a Hindu goddess who is believed to be the master of death, time, and change. She is also said to be the Parvati, the supreme of all powers, or the ultimate reality. Kali’s origin story saw her emerge from Lord Shiva and she is the ultimate manifestation of Shakti and the mother of all living beings and destroys evil in order to protect the innocent. Over time, Kali has been worshiped by devotional movements and tantric sects under the names of Divine Mother, Mother of the Universe, Adi Shakti or Parvati. The Hindu and Tantric Shakta sects also worship her as the ultimate reality or Brahman. She is also considered the divine protector and the one who grants moksha or liberation. How this Kali refers to this Kali remains to be seen.
