2 Enakshi Ganguly = "Ma Kaali is perhaps one of the most misunderstood facets of the Supreme Being. Through imagery and iconography she is portrayed almost demon-like, when put in context, one can see who she is and what she truly depicts. She is the portrayal of time (Kaal) and the all consuming power of chaos and darkness. Neither are 'evil', on the contrary, through the fertility of chaos and darkness, this universe came into being (and it will go back to this). "
3 Enakshi Ganguly = ""Mother Kali is the dynamic aspect of the Transcendental Truth and Lord Shiva is the silent aspect of the highest Transcendental Truth. They fulfil the highest Supreme together, like the obverse and the reverse of the same coin. Shiva is silent and Kali is active and dynamic. If we see with our ordinary human eyes, then we say that they are separate. But with our inner eye if we see them, we see that they are together."Source: http://www.writespirit.net/spirituality/the-cosmic-gods/the-relationship-between-mother-kali-and-lord-shiva/"
