Kali. She is sometimes shown with a dark complexion that symbolizes her all-embracing and transcendental nature. Says the Mahanirvana Tantra: “Just as all colors disappear in black, so all names and forms disappear in her”. Her nudity is primeval, fundamental, and transparent like Nature — the earth, sea, and sky. Kali is free from the illusory covering, for she is beyond the all maya or “false consciousness.”
Kali - the Hindu god of death and destruction, also renewal and motherhood. She is sometimes depicted with ten arms, holding a sword, and with clothes made of human hands. In one battle Kali went on a killing spree. To stop her the Lord Shiva (her husband) threw himself at her feet, she was so stunned that she stuck out her tongue. Many pictures of Kali depict her standing with one foot on Shiva's chest and her tongue sticking out. She is most often pictured as being blue or black in color.
