I love Kali. I named my jewelry business after her. She’s beautiful and terrifying and the slayer of illusion. How can you not love her?
I recently picked up “Grace and Mercy in Her Wild Hair”, a book of devotional poetry dedicated to Kali. It’s a slim volume, but the translations of Ramprasad Sen’s poetry are beautiful:
There’s no way out, so, Mind,
What will you do, bound by Death?
Ramprasad says: Call the Mother,
She can handle Death.
