Maa Kali Murti
Maa Kali is kala shakti or the power of time. She shows the impermanence of all things, which is why she wears a garland of skulls. Yet she is also the ultimate transforming energy of time, which is to take us from death to immortality.
She represents nature at its rawest and most untamed. She is the culmination of all that is strength and power. She is loving without being devoted. She is the ultimate mother—the mother of all power—without being reduced to the role of a mother.
Kali’s femininity isn’t performative. She isn’t, like more manageable avatars of the female divinity such as Durga, or Parvati, calming, reasonable, submissive, or demure. But she doesn’t even have the traits that feminists old and new have seen, and loved, in her. She isn’t angry—although she is like fury—because nature knows no anger. She isn’t even wild, though her appearance rejects the constraints of culture. She is, simply, wilderness itself.
Kali’s role in the mythology vehicles a concept of femininity very different from the humble, graceful ideals that are mainstream the world around—including in India, the land that gave birth to this fierce goddess and yet prescribes the ideal woman as dutiful, submissive, obedient. Kali is none of that: Her power and ferociousness are greater than Shiva’s, whom she nearly kills by stomping upon him.
This makes Kali the feminist icon we need today, in that she is a complex figure of many contrasting traits, all of which are equally worthy expressions of female strength—unapologetic because it doesn’t even consider that there could be anything to apologize for.
She isn’t scared of her force, and if you are, that’s on you. She isn’t the kind of deity that will easily be found sitting on a drawing room’s shelf, or hanging from a wall, with marigold garlands around her frame—and that’s just fine, for she’s got to slay. Kali embodies the boundless and existential freedom to be—without seeking approval. Choosing Kali as an icon isn’t developing the right to be aggressive, feral, ugly, or merciless—it is embracing that the final goal for which women continue to be at war is, simply, to be.
