The Origins of Kali

The 10 Mahavidyas ("Great Wisdoms" or "Great Knowledges") are the 10 main aspects of the Divine Mother of the niverse! the "reatri# of all things$ They are as important to %ind& Tantra as are the 10 'ephiroth of the (ewish Ka))alah! and are considered the secret of all the Tantras$ They incl&de the goddesses Kali! Tara! 'hodashi (Trip&ra '&ndari)! *h&vaneshwari! *hairavi! "hinnamasta! Dh&mavati! *agala M&+hi! Matangi and Kamala$ ,very serio&s Tantri+a sho&ld +now of and wor+ with at least one or more of these goddesses and receive their +nowledge$ -ltho&gh only initiated Tantri+as (those who have received Mantra Di+sha) can do most of the Tantri+ mantra sadhanas for the Mahavidyas! anyone can do the .&/a (worship)! Gayatri mantras and -arti of these great goddesses$ 0irst and foremost among these goddesses is Mother Kali (the ")lac+ one" or the "remover of Dar+ness")! who is also +nown as Maha Kali (The "Great Kali") and who is the spo&se of Maha+al! 'hiva1s dar+ and destr&ctive form$ Maha Kali1s sadhana is cond&cted to show devotion to her! to remove the fear of death! to awa+en and raise the K&ndalini energy! to get over any fears and pho)ias one carries! to give yo& co&rage and victory agaist all odds! to give yo& s&rvival strength! to defeat and destroy one1s enemies! as well as to attain 2a+ 'iddhi (the power of speech 3 the power to )less or c&rse thro&gh speech)$ The following story )ased on the 4Devi Mahatmya4 is one that is often told to children in india a)o&t the origins of the Goddess Kali and her *attle against the demon 5a+ta)i/a$

It happened once, that the world was threatened by the Asuras (demons). The demons rallied together to overthrow the gods and gain control of the earth. The leader of this uprising was Raktabi a, the demon!general. Through the practice of austerities, Raktabi a was granted a boon. This boon, granted by "rahma, allowed Raktabi a#s power to increase by a thousand every time a drop of his blood was spilled. The demon soldiers, led by Raktabi a, came forth and the gods trembled with outrage. The demons ravaged the earth and its inhabitants. $ho would rid the world of this monster% In desperation the gods turned to their shakti (female energy) counterparts. The great and beautiful goddess &urga stepped forward. 'he had protected them before and was obliged to do it again. Armed with the weapons of the gods, &urga rode into battle on a tiger, her champion mount. 'he switched goddess forms many time during battle, slaying demon soldiers as (uickly as they advanced until all that remained was the demon!general. The battle between Raktabi a and the &evi ensued. &urga charged again and again) Raktabi a#s blood spilled everywhere. *rom each drop of blood a thousand more demons like him sprang up. *ull armies arose from the puddles of Raktabi a#s blood.

&emons advanced on the goddess by the thousands. They rode on elephants and horse drawn chariots. They laughed and shouted at the goddess# dilemma. +pon seeing this, &urga became enraged. 'he knitted her brows in absolute fury. *rom this concentration came ,ali, her most destructive aspect, the &ark -oddess $ho Is the Remover of all Ignorance and &arkness. The whole universe shook with the thundering roar of this powerful and terrible goddess. Those demons who stood nearest to the mighty &evi were consumed within the roaring rage of energy. ,ali emerged, naked e.cept for a covering of tiger skin. /er skin was of the deepest black, and hung loosely on /er bones. This mad skeleton of a hag was armed with a skull topped staff, a noose, and the sword of 0engeance. 'he appeared most frightening with her blood red eyes, sunken deep into her skull, wild with raw power an.ious to be unleashed and a third eye flaming brilliantly from her forehead. /er entangled black hair blew wildly about /er shoulders. 'he turned her furious ga1e upon the demon armies, half fell lifeless from the deadly grip of /er stare. 'he let out a loud and petrifying shriek and more fell dead to the ground at ,ali#s feet. $ith wild cackling, she advanced on /er enemies. 'he reached out with her claw!like hands and shoveled some of the remaining demons into her gaping mouth. The rest turned away in fear of this ferocious &evi. The skies were filled with the sound of /er shrieking laughter. "ut ,ali didn#t stop at that. 'he stretched out /er bright red tongue and swallowed all of the elephants and their riders as they tried to run. The horse drawn chariots disappeared with another mouthful into the abyss of &ark -oddess. $ith his armies fully destroyed, again the great &evi faced off with Raktabi a. ,ali pierced the demon in the side and (uickly caught the flowing blood with her tongue and drank it greedily. The life energy of Rakatibi a flowed out with his dripping blood like wine from a bottle. This time he was not given the chance to raise more demons from his blood. /e was helpless in the face of this terrifying hag. ,ali lifted him high in the air so she could more easily drain the blood from his body. *inally, drunken with the blood of victory, ,ali, threw away the demon!general#s corpse. The world was saved. . . . .almost.

It was time for ,ali to begin her victory dance among the demon corpses. "y now 'he was drunk from Raktabi a#s blood and the effect it had on /er caused her to dance wildly. As 'he danced 'he threw /er head back and again filled the skies with her shrill cackling. /er terrible laughter drew the attention of the gods who then came to see the outcome of the battle. They watched as she weaved in and out between the bodies of the demons. As she went she snatched up tokens of victory. *rom the demon hands she created a belt and from their heads she fashioned a garland which she wore around her neck. /er dancing grew more and more fren1ied as she slipped into a trance. /er feet pounded out destruction with each step upon the earth. 'oon the demon corpses were reduced to mush, yet ,ali continued dancing. It seemed as though nothing would stop /er, and again the world was on the verge of collapse. 'omething had to be done, and soon. The gods begged 'hiva to intervene and calm ,ali before it was too late. 'hiva did not yet believe that the world would be destroyed. As 2ord of the &ance, /e himself was en oying the fine display of dancing. /e laughed and waved the other gods away. 32et ,ali en oy herself, 3he said, 3/er ob was well done.3 That was right before he was unseated by the thunderous pounding of ,ali#s dance. $hen he attempted to right himself, another foot step from the &evi sent him flying in the air. /e then understood the full force of what was taking place. /e hurried down to the other gods. They again beseeched him to do something. 'hiva called out to ,ali, but 'he could not hear him, such was the fever that raced through /er. 'he continued pounding what was left of demon flesh into oblivion. 'he rattled her staff and shook her great head. /er hair whipped wildly about causing great winds to carry off a few of the gods that were near by. 'he turned about, and lifted her arms to the sky, laughing cra1ily all the while. 4othing could stop this display of raw energy. 'hiva called out again, but again /is words went unheard. *inally in an act of complete desperation, 'hiva threw /imself down beneath /er feet. ,ali continued her fren1ied dancing, pounding the life out of her husband. It was a few moments more before 'he reali1ed that it was indeed /er husband, 'hiva, who lay flattened at /er feet. 'hocked at this sight, ,ali stuck out her tongue in astonishment, and put an end to her wild rampage. /ence the common image of ,ali shows her in her m5l6e mood, standing with one foot on 'hiva#s chest, with her enormous tongue stuck out.

The reali1ation that she almost killed her husband brought /er out of /er trance, and 'he was once more the calm &evi. The world was saved from total destruction. 'hiva#s (uick and selfless thinking had balanced the &evi#s dance of destruction. $ith the world now safe, the gods returned to their regular routines.

An e!"erien#e $ith Kali Maha*idya

The Mahavidya Kali is a very powerful and loving mother. She represents destruction and transformation and is the remover of the darkness of ignorance. Being the feminine counterpart to Lord Shiva in his destructive and fierce aspects, She is ferocious when she needs to be, and aggressively removes the obstacles, attachments and fears that we have. She will smack you on the back of your head like a good !talian mother" if she feels that it will help you to #wake up#. Many years back when ! was serving in the $.S. %avy, ! e&perienced Kali's energies first(hand. )t that time ! had a supervisor on my ship who was e&tremely abusive of his power. *e would berrate others under him and treat them like shit. +hen he was assigned to me, he decided to shower me with his unkind and unwholesome behavior daily. %othing ! did was good enough. ! was insulted by him daily and none of the other supervisors above him seemed to care or were willing to address my greviances. ! dreaded even going to work, but that was not an option being in the military. )t that time ! was also engaged in intensive Kali Sadhana spiritual practice". ! was daily doing pu,a worship ceremony" to a consecrated murti image-statue" of Kali, followed by ./0 repetitions of her Shabar mantra. Shabar Mantras are different than regular mantras in that they are more like spells with bi,a mantras in them, and were taught by 1orakhnath and Matsyendranath, who are elders of the %ath and )ghori Tantrik Traditions. They are in a country(side dialect, but are e&tremely potent and produce results in a short time.

)nyhow, ! remember getting back from work from a particularly e&hausting day in which ! had been berated all day long by my then supervisor whom ! will call by the initials #%2+#. %ow #%2+# was an )frican )merican who had a chip on his shoulder. ! say this without any racism in my heart... ! have many good )frican )merican friends and have a great deal of respect for )frican )merican culture and )frican Traditional 3eligion. But %2+ was a man who received a position of power in the military and used this position to take out his frustrations on others who were subordinate to him. )nd ! happened to be his victim at the time. ! remember going home, and sitting by my altar very upset, and attempting to do my sadhana to Kali. Trying to choke back the tears ! finally called out to Kali and said to her #!f you my Mother will not protect me, then who will4 Ma, ! appeal to thy 2ustice.# !mmediately ! felt Kali's presence more real then life itself. She was angry and her eyes glowed red. ! distinctly heard her say #*ow dare he abuse my child4 *e will learn a bitter lesson...# ! had cold shivers running down through my back, and ! knew without a shadow of a doubt that Kali Ma would take care of this situation. The ne&t day ! arrived at work on the ship and %2+ was nowhere to be seen. *e didn't report in to work during muster and our 5hief said that he would call him to find out what happened. So our 5hief picks up the office phone and calls %2+. %2+ answers the phone and our 5hief tells us that he %2+"is drunk and not acting normal. *e said to 5hief that he had no more reason to live and that he was going to blow his head off with the gun he was holding, as his wife left him that night with his child and left him a note that he will never see them again. 5hief told him to calm down, that everything will be ok, that he will come to him and talk to him and help him sort things out. %2+ lived about ./ minutes from where our ship was home(ported, and 5hief told us that he was going to %2+'s home to help calm him down. The rest of us got back to work in the office in the ship. )few minutes later %2+ stomps in the office like a madman waving a knife. *e was clearly drunk and e&tremely distraught. *e tore off his %avy shirt and was calling for the 5hief. #+here is 5hief4 *e is the only one who cares. ! want to kill myself. ! hate my life. ! wanna die6 +here is 5hief4# Some of the %57s in my office tried to

calm down %2+, but he would have none of it. *e was going to cut his wrist infront of us, when the %57s tried to tackle him in the office. %2+ was a pretty big black man, and very strong, and he was throwing everyone back against the wall. 5omputers and printers were being thrown all over, and he was acting completely bananas. *e was screaming #! ,ust want to 8!96 +hy won't you let me 8!96 By 1od, if you try to ST7: me ! will take you 7$T as well6# )s ! watched this fiasco, ! clairvoyantly saw that the 1oddess Kali had completely possessed %2+. ! could see her clearly dancing over his head and back, with tongue protruded and a necklace of skulls, dancing the dance of destruction. !t scared the hell out of me6 )nd ! wasn't going to get in her way, thats for sure. !f that nut(,ob wants to kill himself, then by all means go ahead; ! wasn't going to stop him6 )nyhow, someone called the 5aptain and the Master(of()rms, who came down with the Ship's Security to our office. They tackled down %2+, wrestled the knife from him, and tied him down to a chair. They literally strapped him to a chair until the %avy's paramedics arrived. *e was then taken in a straight(,acket to the %avy's Mental *ospital. )fter several weeks there, he was discharged from the military. ! must say that ! was really shaken up after this event. ! have a very #healthy# respect for the 1oddess Kali, and have been very careful about what ! ask of her. !t was <uite a learning e&perience, thats for sure6

Ka'ala 9 The :1otus:


The last Mahavidya we will be focusing upon is the goddess Kamala, whose name means #lotus# and who is also known as Kamalatmika. She is the Tantrik version of the goddess La&mi, the goddess of wealth, beauty, prosperity and delight. She brings material and spiritual happiness to her devotees and is seen as a beautiful goddess of golden comple&ion sitting on a lotus. 9lephants are around her showering her with divine nectar. She is called either the spouse of =ishnu or that of Sadashiv. The lotus flower is a symbol of purity and her worship leads to purity of mind and heart and to real devotion.

The story of her origin is as follows>

?7ne day !ndra, the ruler of the heavens, saw 3ambha and was lost watching her beauty. )t that time, the fierce 3ishi 8urvasa appeared and gave a garland to !ndra. But !ndra, still mesmeri@ed by 3ambha, did not reali@e what he was doing and gave the garland to his elephant )iravat. 8urvasa was angry with the disrespect shown to him and immediately cursed !ndra thus, #Aou are the king of the 1ods, but yet you are playing with women. Aou will lose Lakshmi. She will leave your kingdom.# 1oddess Lakshmi, true to the curse, left the heavenly regions. )ll the 1ods were saddened, and led by !ndra went to =ishnu to get his counsel. =ishnu suggested that she would appear if they churned the ocean of milk. Both the 8evas and asuras got together at the ocean of milk Ksheera samudra", they used Mount Mandara as the central a&le, =ishnu took the form of a giant tortoise to support the churning base, and the serpent )nant %ag was used to move the mountain. The asuras and the devas each took the opposite ends of the snake and churned the ocean. 7ut of the churning came a lot of beautiful people and ob,ects B $cchaishrava the divine horse", 8hanvantri the 1od of Medicine", the Sudharshana 5hakra, the :ari,ata flower and then came Lakshmi. +hen they saw Lakshmi, the 1ods offered her an asan with the greatest of respect. They did an abishek to her, offered her a lotus garland and entreated her to stay with them, to which she agreed. This form of Lakshmi is known as Kamala.C ?Source> http>--www.indiadivine.org-audarya-shakti(sadhana-DD/./(day(E(final( three(mahavidyas.html C

Kamala Aantra )lthough La&mi and Kamala are the same deity, Kamala is La&mi as a full and complete deity on her own terms. !n La&mi's myths she is seen as inseparable from her husband =ishnu and at times even subservient to him. Kamala is ,ust the opposite. She can stand on her own without reference to her spouse, and when he is mentioned it is made clear that she is the Supreme power in that relationship. So what else makes Kamala different from La&mi4 Kamala is the more active form of La&mi. +hile La&mi may passively shower one with wealth and blessings, Kamala will actively ensure it. She will move heaven and earth to make sure her devotee gets what they want. 1old, treasures, love, peace, beauty, health, she gives it all. La&mi may get you a ,ob when you pray to her for one; Kamala will get you a ,ob and then make sure you get promoted <uickly in that ,ob as well as move up the ladder. She is active grace manifested on the material level. So how does one get the attention of Kamala4 By having a philanthropic and prosperity consciousness. She e&pects you to be generous with your wealth, to share what she gives you. Since she is also beauty e&pressed in the material level, she desires you to keep the material world beautiful, to honor and preserve the natural resources and fellow creatures we have on earth. By taking care of others and helping the less fortunate you align yourself with her. She is after(all, the 1reat Mother of all things. Aou please her by selfless service, which develops more devotion in your heart. )nd what will she not give

to her children when she is happy with them4 She is the fullness of 8ivine 1race who gives everything. Tantrik Mantra for Kamala: AUM AING HRING SHRING KLING HASSAU JAGATPRASUTAYEI NAMAH. Another Mantra for Kamala: Om Shreem Hreem Shreem Kamale Kamalalayei Praseed Praseed Shreem Hreem Shreem Om Mahalakshmiyei Namah.

Matangi 9 The :+ohe'ian: Goddess
The Mahavidya Matangi is said to be the incarnation of the goddess Saraswati, who is the goddess of music, art, poetry and learning. She is the spouse of Shiva in his aspect of #Matang#. Matangi is also Saraswati's wilder side, and is patron to outcastes who are marginalised by polite society. She inspires the free thinkers, artists, poets, actors and musicians who think outside the bo& and whose works may at times be looked down upon by the establishment.

*er name Matangi means #The +ord of the 1oddess e&pressed through thought.# She is the inspirer of all unorthodo& new thought movements in society that bring ,oy and creativity. *er body's color is dark emerald(green and she is said to have been incarnated at one time as the daughter of the 3ishi sage" Matang, who was from the lowest *indu caste known as 5handal. Thus she also assumes the name #5handali#. Because of this she took on the role of patron to outcastes and to those considered to be #impure# by some segments of society. !nfact Matangi is said to prefer impurity in her worship, not worrying about cleanliness as other =edic goddeses are wont to do, and is pleased by food and drink leftovers as an offering. 8espite her humility, she is also said to be the counselor to the Mahavidya Tripura Sundari who is also known as #3a,a

3a,eshwari# the Gueen of the $niverse", and her knowledge of the workings of mantras are e&emplary. There is an interesting story about her origin from the Praa#a$%si#i"$a#$ra which says that> ?1oddess :arvati 8evi" was away visiting *er father *imalaya, when *er consort Lord Shiva began longing for *er, and growing ,ealous in *er absence. So Shiva disguised *imself as an ornament vendor and appeared at *imalaya s door. :arvati selected a few shell ornaments, but when She asked the merchant his price he asked *er to pay him with se&ual favors. 7utraged at his presumption, :arvati was about to curse the man when *er divine intuition revealed he was actually Shiva in disguise, apparently out to test *er fidelity. 5oncealing *er knowledge of *is true identity, She replied, #Aes, fine, ! agree. But not ,ust now.# )nd She sent Shiva on *is way. Later, as Shiva prepared for *is evening prayers on the shores of Manas Lake, :arvati came to teach *im a lesson. She took the form of a beautiful outcaste girl, a member of the wild hunter(gatherer tribe known as the 5handalas. She was dressed all in red, *er body lean, *er eyes large, *er breasts full (( and She began a seductive dance by the lakeside, near the place where Shiva sat. 9nthralled, Shiva asked *er, #+ho are you4# She replied, #! am Matangi, daughter of the 5handalas. ! have come here to do penance.# Shiva smiled. #! am the 7ne who gives fruits to those who do penance,# *e said, and he took *er hand and kissed *er, and then *e made love to *er. +hile they were thus engaged, however, :arvati abruptly transformed Shiva into an outcaste 5handala *imself (( whereupon *e immediately reali@ed that Matangi was his wife. :arvati told *im, #Since Aou made love to Me in the form of a 5handala girl, She will henceforth be one of My permanent forms, to be known as $cchista 5handalini.# That is, Matangi, the 7utcaste 1oddess, who governs all that is leftover and polluted. )nd so Matangi took *er place as one of the Ten +isdom 1oddesses, the primary forms of 8evi-:arvati. )nd some time later, when :arvati and Shiva argued and *e threatened to leave, Matangi ,oined the other Mahavidyas in blocking *is every e&it, thereby demonstrating among many other things" 8evi's ultimate power over Shiva (( and *is utter inseparability from *er.C ?Source> http>--shaktisadhana.F/megs.com-%ewhomepage-shakti-maatangi.html C

Matangi Aantra Matangi is worshipped by Tantrikas who are seeking inspiration, knowledge, creativity, and the love of and e&pertise in music, poetry and the arts. She also gives elo<uence to one's speech and blesses one with charm.

+AGA1A M0K(4 9 The Sei=er of Tongues
Bagala Mukhi is another Mahavidya who is very useful when it comes to works of black magic. *er name Bagala means #the power to bridle or rope in# and Mukhi means #face#. She is the goddess that has the power to stun or paralyse the mind, body and tongue of anyone with a mere look. She can free@e anyone and anything and put a stop to any situation immediately.

The myth of her origin is as follows> ?#) demon named Madan undertook austerities and won the boon of vak siddhi, according to which anything he said came about. *e abused this siddhi by killing people. 9nraged by his mischief, the gods worshipped Bagalamukhi. She stopped the demon's rampage by taking hold of his tongue and stilling his speech. Before she could kill him, however, he asked to be worshipped with her, and she relented, That is why he is

depicted with her. She is almost always portrayed in this act, holding a club in one hand, with which she is about to strike her enemy, and with the other hand pulling his tongue. !n this myth, by stopping the demon's tongue, she e&ercises her peculiar power over speech and her power to free@e, stun, or paraly@e.#C ?

Dhu'a*ati 9 The :s'oky: .rone
7f all the Mahavidyas 8humavati is the eldest and darkest one. She is the patronness of black magic and dark witchcraft. *er name 8humavati can be translated as the #the one who is composed of smoke#. She represents all that is inauspicious, bringing with her misfortune, poverty, suffering, disease and darkness. Because of these <ualities she is often correlated to the goddess #)la&mi#, the goddess of decay, poverty and misfortune.

She is ugly to behold, a veritable hag with matted and dishevelled hair, thin body, wrinkled skin, no teeth, and a hoarse voice. Being a widow, she is the only Mahavidya who has no spouse. 7ne legend says that she once ate the Lord Shiva who was her husband to satisfy her e&treme hunger. +hen Shiva caused her to vomit him, he cursed her to be an eternal and lonely widow. 8espite all these terrible stories about her she does have devotees who believe that she is a misunderstood grandmother figure who holds great ancestral wisdom. She is said to represent the =oid, that still space before creation began. 7thers say that she is the goddess Kali in her old age. She rides a chariot with a flag of a crow, a harbinger of death and shadow forces. )nother crow sits on her chariot. She also carries with her a broom(like dust collecter. The Shak$isam'ama"Ta#$ra puts her origin during the time that the goddess Sati commits

suicide by ,umping in a ritual fire; 8humavati's blackened face is supposed to have arisen as Sati's body burned.

Dh&mavati 6antra 8humavati's worship is done mainly to get protection from one's enemies, to attain a state of detachment from one's sufferings, to e&perience the =oid, or to destroy one's enemies. The darkest forms of sorcery are associated with her. She gives the power to kill one's enemies, to bewilder and twist their minds, and to create <uarrels and disharmony between two people. She is associated with cremation grounds, the waning moon cycles and the darkest phase of the moon. She is not a goddess to be casually invoked, as her energies can be <uite heavy to bear.

.hinna'asta 9 :1osing one@s head:
The Mahavidya 5hinnamasta is an intimidating image to behold. She is represented as a goddess with a decapitated head that is feeding two attendants and her own head with spurts of blood, while balancing herself on top of the god Kama 8eva and his wife 3ati who are mating beneath her.

*er name 5hinnamasta means #cut(off# #chinna#" #head# #masta#". The head that she has cut(off symboli@es the sacrifice of the ego(mind that one must voluntarily relin<uish to attain a higher state of consciousness. The three spurts of blood symboli@e the three streams of energy flowing within our spinal column, the !da, :ingala, and Sushumna. *er own head feeds on the nectar flowing from the middle stream, the Sushumna energies, which represents the perfect balance of solar and lunar energies. She is on top of the copulating Kama 8eva god of se& and desire" and his wife 3ati to represent the control over se&ual energies and sensual en,oyment that an adept must achieve to allow the Kundalini energy to flow upwards through the spine.

There are several colorful stories about how and why 5hinnamasta gives up her head. 7ne of these is the following> ?7nce :arvati went with *er friends 8akini and =arnini to take a bath in the Mandakini 3iver. :arvati was feeling very happy and a lot of love was welling up inside *er. *er comple&ion darkened and the feeling of love completely took over. *er friends on the other hand were hungry and asked :arvati to give them some food. :arvati re<uested them to wait and said that She would feed them after a while, and began walking. )fter a short while, *er friends once again appealed to *er, telling *er that She was the Mother of the $niverse and they *er children, and asked to be fed <uickly. :arvati replied that they should wait until they got home. *er friends could not wait any longer and demanded that their hunger be satisfied immediately. The compassionate :arvati laughed and with her finger nail cut *er own head. !mmediately the blood spurted in three directions. *er two friends drank the blood from two of the directions and the 1oddess herself drank the blood from the third direction. Since she cut *er own head, she is known as 5hinnamasta. C ?Source> Kinsley, 8avid. Hi#d, G%ddesses. $niversity of 5alifornia :ress .EE0" .HIC

"hinnamasta 6antra 5hinnamasta is also known in Tibetan Buddhism as #5hinnamunda# or #=a,rayogini#, who is the patron of =a,rayanna Sorcery. She is known to give her devotees great siddhis magical powers" including the powers to sub,ugate enemies and prospective lovers. )ccording to some Tantras she rules over the Manipura solar ple&us" and ),na brow"

chakras and gives the adept the powers of +ill and =ision. She is known as =a,ra =airochaniya, the lighting(force power behind the Lord who wields the =a,ra, the weapon of the 1od !ndra. She is called #!ndrani# in some te&ts, the spouse of the =edic god !ndra. !n other te&ts she is depicted as wife of Shiva in his aspect as #Kabandh# the destroyer of worlds. She is seen as encouraging spiritual practitioners to move beyond body consciousness by removing the ego from its pedestal. She will also give the diligent practitioner control over the se&ual energy and se&ual desires.

Tri"ura +haira*i 9 :The Terror of the Three /lanes of !isten#e:
The ne&t Mahavidya in our series is known as #Tripura Bhairavi# or simply #Bhairavi#. +hen she gets pissed off she becomes the fearsome #Kalratri# a very destructive form of the goddess Kali. The word #Bhairavi# means #terrifying# or #fearsome# and #Tripura# means the #three planes of e&istence.#

She is the spouse of Kal(Bhairava, a dark and fearsome aspect of Shiva. The Bhairavi Stotra *ymn of Bhairavi" says the following about her> #Aou are the origin of the world and yet you yourself have no origin, though there are hundred hymns honoring you. 9ven Brahma, =ishnu and Mahesvara do not know you, who is the Mother of all Sastras.# She is said to live in cremation grounds, cemeteries and *imalayan forests and is the caretaker of these places. She also is said to reside in the Muladhara 3oot 5hakra" of every human being, and to be the Kriya Shakti energy of action" that propels the Kundalini to rise up <uickly so you can achieve a state of $nion with 8ivinity. She is the remover of any obstacles to your <uick spiritual growth, whether the obstacle be your own sloth or delusion or something else. She will forcibly take away or remove those things that keep us from growing spiritually. *er reputation is so great that Tantrik

female adepts, especially of se&ual yogas, are often called #bhairavis#. But a true Bhairavi is no submissive lady. She is fearsome and wrathful even in her love(making. )n image of a dominatri& comes to mind as a perfect anology. Tripura Bhairavi is 8ivine wrath, but a controlled wrath that is channeled properly as fuel for sadhana spiritual practice".

*hairavi as Kalratri She is the energy of Tapas austerity" itself, giving us the fuel necessary to maintain fasting, celibacy, or any spiritual practice that takes great willpower. She will help you persevere against all obstacles that are blocking you. She also will stimulate in a spiritual aspirant the desire to leave all things behind all one's attachments" and seek a place of solitude to practice austerities.

There are two main stories told of her origins$ =n one of these stories it is said that 'hiva once teased the goddess Kali and called her "dar+ie" which got Kali &pset and made her go into spirit&al retreat$ 'he decided that she wo&ld recreate herself as the most )ea&tif&l and )rightest of the goddesses$ 'he did e#actly that thro&gh her spirit&al practices$ When the sage Darada fo&nd 'hiva alone he inJ&ired as to Kali1s wherea)o&ts and was told that she had a)andoned her h&s)and and gone away$ Darada +nowing that 'hiva was powerless witho&t his spo&se went to loo+ for her and fo&nd her in the mo&ntains$ To convince her to ret&rn he told Kali that 'hiva was loo+ing for another wife! and that she had )etter ret&rn soon$ Kali ret&rned J&ic+ly and saw 'hiva contemplating his own heart$ -s she ga>ed in his heart she saw a )ea&tif&l and light3 comple#ioned goddess$ Dot reali>ing that it was herself she got /ealo&s and mad at 'hiva once again$ 'hiva la&ghed and told her to loo+ with more discernment! wherein she reali>ed that she was loo+ing on her own )ea&tif&l reflection$ "6es! my love!" said 'hiva!

An !"erien#e $ith Matangi Maha*idya

7atangi 7ahavidya is truly the patron of outcastes. In India she has become a favorite deity for prostitutes, transgendered people, poets, artists, street children and con!men. 'he possesses the power of speech and mantras, and is called upon by tantrikas in all arts of enchantment, magnetism, attraction, and creativity. 'he is said to be one of the se.iest deities out there with a beautiful body, luscious lips and enchanting eyes. 'he can make a man fall in love with you, re!unite lovers, enchant a boss to give you a promotion, or ust give you a great boost in your se.!life. 'he is very helpful in re!stimulating romantic sparks in a marriage that has lost it. 'he can also help you create a magnetic aura to attract people to you, whether it be for relationships or friendship. "eing a goddess who is worshipped through polluted or left!over items, I have heard of prostitutes offering her se.ual fluids from their love!making sessions to increase their business. 'he is also associated with the goddess 7ohini (the 2ord 0ishnu when he disguised himself as a goddess and had se. with 2ord 'hiva), and is said to be androgynous and able to assume a male or female form. "ecause of this aspect of her, the transgendered and 2-"T community in India takes her as a patron. 'he accepts all who society has discarded. 'he is mother, comforter and friend to all. 'he doesn#t ask too much from her children and partakes of left!over food that has touched the lips and hands of her devotees. In return she blesses those who make such offerings with love, happiness and success.

The 7ahavidya 7atangi is said to be linked to green Tara. "oth have dark green colored skin, and their devotees see them as one and the same. 9fcourse in the greater scheme of things all the 7ahavidyas are 9ne, being different facets of the &ivine 7other. The Mantra Mahodadhi of Mahidhara describes the goddess 7atangi as she 3whose comple.ion is dark like the cloud, who is seated on a pedestal studded with gems, who wears red cloth, who listens to the chirping sound of the parrot, who is stationed on a lotus, who is inebriated after the consumption of li(uor, and who plays on the lute.3 It goes on to say that one can please 7atangi and receive her aid by repeating her mantra ten thousand times ending with =AAA repetitions of her mantra during a *ire offering ceremony (/oma) in which 7adhuka flowers are smeared with honey and offered into the fire. The mantra that is given in that te.t is 39m /rim Aim 'rim 4amo "hagavati +cchistacandali 'ri 7atangesvari 'arvan anavasamkari 'vaha3.

The Lalithopakhyana gives a prayer!verse with several names of 7atangi8 Sangeeta yogini shyama shyamala mantra nayika mantrini sachiveshani pradhaneshi shukapriya vina vati vainiki cha mudrini priyakapriya nipapriya kadambeshi kadamba vanavasini sadamada cha namani shodashaitaini kumbhaja It is said that the one who recites this stotra often can con(uer all the three worlds. I once witnessed a Tantrika using a special powder to enchant a prospective lover with the help of 7atangi 7ahavidya. 'he smeared some black crow feathers with honey and her menstrual blood, burned them in a fire until they reduced to ashes. Then she took the ashes and inspired them with 7atangi#s tantrik mantra. 'he then proceeded to sprinkle the ashes in the pathway of her lover calling upon 7atangi &evi to make the man fall in! love with her) as soon as he had stepped on the ashes he became enchanted by her.

7atangi Bantra

I have also used 7atangi#s Bantra etched on a sheet of copper to create love between two people. I took the pictures and other personal effects of the couple and place them on either side of a matangi yantra, then tied them

together in a packet while chanting 7atangi#s mantras and asking her to bind them together in love. Then I placed the entire package in a red cloth and buried it in the house or yard of the one sought for love. Its never failed to bring the two people together as a couple. .osted )y -ghor .ir at :9BE .M ,mail This*logThis;'hare to Twitter'hare to 0ace)oo+ <in+s to this post <a)els9 aghora! e#perience! matangi

An !"erien#e $ith Dhu'a*ati Maha*idya

8humavati Mahavidya reminds me much of the 1reek goddess *ecate in her crone aspect. 2ust like *ecate she is a patron of witchcraft and dark magic. She also rules the underworld. She is one of the Mahavidyas who rules over death maran" magic, confusion uchchatan" magic, and separation vidweshan" magic, and is often called upon for those particular tasks. She also brings depression and poverty to one's enemies. *er magic is powerful and she is a favorite deity of those witches and sorcerors who perform works of black magic. ! once had a client who was being attacked by a Tantrik witch who was working with this Mahavidya. My client was having many problems, which included bad health, poverty, and attacks from spirits known as #churail#. The Mahavidya 8humavati is Gueen of the churail spirits which she dispatches to destroy someone when she is called upon to do such a task.

ch&rail ?#) churel, also written as #churail#, or rather #chudail# pronounced chew(dail" 8evanagari> " is a female ghost out of *indu folklore. She appears either as a hideous creature with long sagging breasts and unkempt hair, or as a beautiful young woman who can charm any man. 7ften, her feet are backward, and she has an unnaturally long and thick black tongue. The churel is said to be the unhappy ghost of a woman who died in childbirth or while menstruating. This connection means that she sucks blood, a habit shared with another monster, the vampire, and because young men are the cause of her death, the 5hurel always drinks from young men, beginning with the one she loved in life. The churel usually lives near small rivers, springs or cemeteries. She is either seen wearing a white or a red sari' representing a widow or a bride respectively. )lternatively churels are said to be the spirits of black witches who sold their souls in return for powers of black magic.#C Quoted from: Wikipedia.

Dh&mavati )nyhow, some evil witch in !ndia, witchcraft is not necessarily #white# as in the +iccan religion; it is often malevolent" had done through the assistance of the Mahavidya 8humavati" a heavy curse on my client who was suffering horribly. +hen ! arrived at his house ! noticed that there were crows all over his yard. This is usually a sign of either the deity Shani Saturn" or that of the Mahavidya 8humavati. My client reported to me that he was suffering horrible nightmares in which he was being attacked by spirits that looked like old hags with long claw(like nails. Sometimes he would wake up with these nail(marks on his flesh. *is house also had a gloomy feel to it, like a dark cloud was around the place. ! also noticed a horrible stench like that of faeces inside the house. %one of us could detect where it was originating from. )ll these were signs of dark spirits and occult forces at work. )fter performing divination and consulting my own spirits ! received confirmation that my client was indeed under magical attack.

%an&man *anuman is one of the most powerful deities in the *indu pantheon. *e plays a similar role as )rchangel Michael in !ndia, and ghosts and demons flee from the place where he is invoked. ! chanted that particular line from the *anuman 5halisa ./0 times in each room, blew on the four walls of every room of the house while fumigating the house with the incense. ! also enchanted H Tantrik %ariyals small one(eyed coconuts" with the *anuman 5halisa and buried them in the four corners of the house. ! then did an offering of limes and pumpkins to 8humavati at a crossroads and asked her to remove the curse on my client.

*e wrote on each rock individually with a lead pencil the name of the person, their mother's name and birthdate. *e then lit some charcoal on his incense burner. *e put some red chillies in the incense burner while invoking 8humavati through invocatory prayer. *e then named each rock with the name of the person while fumigating the rock with the chillies incense smoke. )fterwards he proceeded to ask 8humavati to separate the couple and break(up their marriage, to cause hate in their hearts for each other. *e took the two rocks and banged them together while chanting 8humavati's mantra #8*$%1 8*$%1 8*$M)=)T!

An !"erien#e $ith Tri"ura +haira*i Maha*idya

+henever ! think of the Mahavidya Tripura Bhairavi ! always see a beautiful woman surrounded with flames in my mind. That is because that is how she always appears to me when ! engage in any of her sadhanas spiritual practices". The first time ! made contact with her ! wasn't specifically trying to attune to her. ! was doing a homa fire ceremony" to worship and receive the blessings of her husband, Kala Bhairava, who is a ferocious form of the Lord Shiva. ! was having some problems in my life that were karmically related and an astrologer ! know recommended that ! propitiate Kala Bhairava through a homa. This Kala Bhairava homa is similar to the one ! performed> http>--www.vedicastrologer.org-homam-bhairava-bhairavaLhomamLenglish.pdf +hile engaged in the homa rite, ! meditated on the sacred fire itself. %ear the end of the ceremony ! saw a beautiful woman whose skin was of a reddish(black hue with horns on her head who emerged from the flames, and who was holding a trishul trident" in one hand. She was erotic and enticing, yet a detached faraway look was on her eyes as if she was engaged in this play ,ust for the sake of us mortals. *er image reminded me of the spirit :omba 1ira from Bra@ilian Kimbanda>

! asked her who she was, and she told me that she was the shakti feminine counterpart" to Lord Kala Bhairava, and that her true form in this world was that of the sacred fire itself. She said that when one invokes Kala Bhairava, she is also there, as there is no separation between the two other than that she is more immanent while he is more transcendent, although both can reverse these roles if it be their wish. She then initiated me into the IEth meditation techni<ue from the =igyan Bhairava Tantra. The particular techni<ue is one of a series of techni<ues that Lord Shiva taught his wife on the ways of attaining samadhi. Lord Shiva e&plained the IEth techni<ue thus> #Kocus on Kire rising through your form from the toes up until the body burns to ashes but not you.# !n the following link there is a more elaborate e&planation of this techni<ue> http>--www.oshoworld.com-tantraLmedi-otantra.asp4newsLidMIE Through the years Bhairavi has taught me other powerful sadhanas which have been of use in my own spiritual path. )mong these is the powerful :anch )gni Tapasya #five fires# austerity" which involves meditating with four fires surrounding you, with the sun being the fifth fire. Some practitioners increase the number of fires surrounding them as they continue to e&cel in such a practice. The heat and the flames puts one in an altered state of consciousness where one can commune with the gods, elements and spirits that is similar in nature to the %ative )merican sweat lodge ceremony. The purpose of such a ceremony is to purify one's energy field, sins and negative karma through the power of fire. !t is practiced by sinners and yogis who want rapid spiritual cleansing. Tripura

Bhairavi told me that she always assists and blesses those who engage in such a sadhana sincerely.

Tripura Bhairavi also functions as a patron and teacher to those ladies who wish to engage in se&ual tantrik spirito(magical sadhanas. That is one of the reasons why such a female adept is called a #bhairavi# or #ananda bhairavi#. +hen one travels to certain Shakta Tantrik centers such as Kamakhya in )ssam, !ndia, one may have the good fortune to meet such a gifted female adept ananda bhairavi" sitting in front of a temple or in a cremation grounds samshan" who can initiate one into these advanced sadhanas. Some are young and supple, others are old and one(toothed, but all are accomplished practitioners whose touch is craved by gods and men. These bhairavis can initiate you into ecstatic states by their mere touch or flicker of the tongue on your body. By petitioning Tripura Bhairavi she can send to you one of her priestesses to initiate you into her mysteries. There are also male =ama Marg Left *and path" se&ual adepts called #ananda bhairavas# as well, so fear not ladies and gents. )ll se&es are represented in Tantra. ?!n a big room, there are .F/ girls and .F/ boys. Meanwhile, Kaulacharya entered into the hall. Kaulacharya means the 1uru, the guide of vama tantra, the left hand path. 7n his body, there is only one tiger skin on his waist. *e has many locks in his hair. *e brought an idol made of mud of the 1oddess Mother and all the disciples decorated her. +ith his permission, all the disciples started chanting mother 1oddess stotras, songs. )s you know, in !ndia so many creeds e&ist, Brahmana, Kshatriya, =aisha,

and Shudra. But in vama tantra, they are all considered the same, as they were all there. There were so many virgins> yoginis B those who did the yoga, ra,ikis B those who washed the clothes of the people, swopachis B those who cleaned the toilets, and kaivartakis B those who are the fishermenNs daughters. That was vasantarutu, the springtime. That was Sunday, the starting of the night. )nd Kaulacharya caught hold of one .D year old girlNs hand and he brought her to the pedestal. She was beautiful and shapely. She was blushed in her face. *er lips were wet, as she was so beautiful. *e made one tika, a decoration on her on the third eye with sindhur, fragrant and herbal powder. !t was shaped in the third eye. Kaulacharya started chanting some mantras. Ananda Bhairavim devim varbhaya lasath karbhm gora rupm var rohm trinetrm raktavsasam raktavarnm maharaudrm sahasrabhairavn vitm brahma vishnu mahesh dyaihi stuyamnm shivm bha e!

Aes, she contains ./// of BhairavaNs energy in Brahma, =ishnu and Shiva, and all O murtis, energies of creator, nourisher, and destroyer, prostrate at her feet. Then Kaulacharya chanted "ahaksha malavaraym ananda bhairavyai vaushat.! Then he offered gandha, a powder made up of a sandalwood treeNs bark, saying #andha samarpayami,! means ! offer to you the gandha. Then he sprayed some fragrant spray on her. $ushpam samarpayami,P he said, then he offered her some flowers. Akshatam samarpayami,! rice paddies. Then he offered her some fragrant scented sticks, %oopam samarpayami.! Then he offered her the lamp, %eepam samarpayami.! Then he chose a perfectly shaped youth from the men. *e made him to stand beside her. *e was very strong. &aktavarnam 'haktur bahom trinetram varadam shivam at hota dharma devam vsuk kunda bushitam!

Then Kaulacharya removed a serpent from the bo&, and he garlanded him with that. )nd he made the pu,a, ritual, to him in the same way how he did to the Bhairavi. Then he asked all the disciples to do the meditation of )nanda Bhairavi and )nanda Bhairava together. %e&t, Kaulacharya asked )nanda Bhairavi to remove her clothes and asked )nanda Bhairava to remove his clothes. +hen the disciples opened their eyes, they saw )nanda Bhairavi and )nanda Bhairava in a total naked posture. )nd all the disciples started worshipping them. 9ven Kaulacharya removed his tiger skin from his waist. !mmediately all the disciples removed all their clothes. Kaulacharya chanted this sloka, S(adhyam mmsam 'ha mnam'ha mudr maithuna meva'ha yeatea pan'hamakarha shuhu moksha dha hi yuge yuge! B ma#sam 4 mea$0 madhyam 4 al(%h%l0 m5#am 4 1ish0 m,dra 4 $he *%s$,re0 mai$h,#a 4 se6,al i#$er(%,rse 4 !t means that all these F can give the absolute reality to the sQdhaka whose

striving for it in every yuga, every time. Then Kaulacharya, with wheat powder made a chakra on the ground of navayonQtmaka yantra, nine vaginas in geometrical form. 7n that chakra, a pot filled with whiskey has been kept. Then it has been given to the Bhairavi. She drank half of the glass and poured the other half of the glass into the pot. )nd all other sQdhakis and sQdhakas started drinking from it. )nd fish and mutton was offered to the Bhairavi. )nd Kaulacharya ate a little piece from everywhere, and it has been given to the sQdhakis and sQdhakas as prasada, an offering. )fter eating it, they started drinking from the pot. )nd it was a dark night that sadhana was going on. )ll are into&icated, but all are in control. Then Kaulacharya started a particular performance. Krom BhairaviNs yoni, vagina, he has drawn a line towards her third eye. The same way he did with the Bhairava, from his lingam, penis to his third eye, as he is her partner. )nd all the Bhairavis and Bhairavas started kissing the yoni vagina of the Bhairavi and kissing the lingam of the Bhairava. Then Kaulacharya took some whiskey from the pot and he started pouring it on the bodies of the Bhairavi and the Bhairava, and all others started licking it. There was so many balis, sacrifices, that were given to Bhairavi and Bhairava. )nd now it is time for the sambhoga, the se&ual intercourse. !n various postures they were having se&. Aham Bhairava tvam Bhairavi hyava rastu samgamaha! B I am +haira)a a#d y%, are +haira)i. :lease come. +e can have an alliance so that we can mingle as one. )nd they were in se&ual intercourse. )nd they were chanting mantras and so many stotras. Some of the people are doing the fire worship and its fragrance was engulfing the entire atmosphere. Kaulacharya was in a good mood. *e said, SLet it continue, but no e,aculation. )nd let this Bhairavi(Bhairava sangam, this mingling, continue. Let you be above all these impressions. !f at all you feel like e,aculating, please e,aculate in the pot which is kept in the Bhairavi chakra.P 7My dear *e%*le0 y%, are '%i#' $% rea(h a-s%l,$e reali$y. !%#8$ $hi#k $ha$ i$ is a#y %rdi#ary se6,al i#$er(%,rse.

C )A gana%hakra e+perien%e from: %iaries of Bhairavi

%ow that we have spoken in some detail about Bhairavi in her se&ual form, we can touch a bit on her destructive form. Tripura Bhairavi in her aspect of destruction has been of great help to me in getting rid of bad habits and things that ! am ready to let go of in life, be it people or situations. The easiest way ! have found to do this is to write the names of things that no longer serve me on paper which ! burn in a bowl or cauldron during the full moon while chanting her mantras. She works rapidly in clearing these issues from my life, sometimes through unpredictable means. )nyone who takes time to work with this powerful Mahavidya will receive many rewards. )lthough her nature is fearsome, she is still our 8ivine Mother in a different form. .osted )y -ghor .ir at B9:: .M ,mail This*logThis;'hare to Twitter'hare to 0ace)oo+ <in+s to this post <a)els9 aghori! trip&ra )hairavi

An e!"erien#e $ith Kali Maha*idya

The Mahavidya Kali is a very powerful and loving mother. She represents destruction and transformation and is the remover of the darkness of ignorance. Being the feminine counterpart to Lord Shiva in his destructive and fierce aspects, She is ferocious when she needs to be, and aggressively removes the obstacles, attachments and fears that we have. She will smack you on the back of your head like a good !talian mother" if she feels that it will help you to #wake up#. Many years back when ! was serving in the $.S. %avy, ! e&perienced Kali's energies first(hand. )t that time ! had a supervisor on my ship who was e&tremely abusive of his power. *e would berrate others under him and treat them like shit. +hen he was assigned to me, he decided to shower me with his unkind and unwholesome behavior daily. %othing ! did was good enough. ! was insulted by him daily and none of the other supervisors above him seemed to care or were willing to address my greviances. ! dreaded even going to work, but that was not an option being in the military. )t that time ! was also engaged in intensive Kali Sadhana spiritual practice". ! was daily doing pu,a worship ceremony" to a consecrated murti image-statue" of Kali, followed by ./0 repetitions of her Shabar mantra. Shabar Mantras are different than regular mantras in that they are more like spells with bi,a mantras in them, and were taught by 1orakhnath and Matsyendranath, who are elders of the %ath and )ghori Tantrik Traditions. They are in a country(side dialect, but are e&tremely potent and produce results in a short time.

)nyhow, ! remember getting back from work from a particularly e&hausting day in which ! had been berated all day long by my then supervisor whom ! will call by the initials #%2+#. %ow #%2+# was an )frican )merican who had a chip on his shoulder. ! say this without any racism in my heart... ! have many good )frican )merican friends and have a great deal of respect for )frican )merican culture and )frican Traditional 3eligion. But %2+ was a man who received a position of power in the military and used this position to take out his frustrations on others who were subordinate to him. )nd ! happened to be his victim at the time. ! remember going home, and sitting by my altar very upset, and attempting to do my sadhana to Kali. Trying to choke back the tears ! finally called out to Kali and said to her #!f you my Mother will not protect me, then who will4 Ma, ! appeal to thy 2ustice.# !mmediately ! felt Kali's presence more real then life itself. She was angry and her eyes glowed red. ! distinctly heard her say #*ow dare he abuse my child4 *e will learn a bitter lesson...# ! had cold shivers running down through my back, and ! knew without a shadow of a doubt that Kali Ma would take care of this situation. The ne&t day ! arrived at work on the ship and %2+ was nowhere to be seen. *e didn't report in to work during muster and our 5hief said that he would call him to find out what happened. So our 5hief picks up the office phone and calls %2+. %2+ answers the phone and our 5hief tells us that he %2+"is drunk and not acting normal. *e said to 5hief that he had no more reason to live and that he was going to blow his head off with the gun he was holding, as his wife left him that night with his child and left him a note that he will never see them again. 5hief told him to calm down, that everything will be ok, that he will come to him and talk to him and help him sort things out. %2+ lived about ./ minutes from where our ship was home(ported, and 5hief told us that he was going to %2+'s home to help calm him down. The rest of us got back to work in the office in the ship. )few minutes later %2+ stomps in the office like a madman waving a knife. *e was clearly drunk and e&tremely distraught. *e tore off his %avy shirt and was calling for the 5hief. #+here is 5hief4 *e is the only one who cares. ! want to kill myself. ! hate my life. ! wanna die6 +here is 5hief4# Some of the %57s in my office tried to

calm down %2+, but he would have none of it. *e was going to cut his wrist infront of us, when the %57s tried to tackle him in the office. %2+ was a pretty big black man, and very strong, and he was throwing everyone back against the wall. 5omputers and printers were being thrown all over, and he was acting completely bananas. *e was screaming #! ,ust want to 8!96 +hy won't you let me 8!96 By 1od, if you try to ST7: me ! will take you 7$T as well6# )s ! watched this fiasco, ! clairvoyantly saw that the 1oddess Kali had completely possessed %2+. ! could see her clearly dancing over his head and back, with tongue protruded and a necklace of skulls, dancing the dance of destruction. !t scared the hell out of me6 )nd ! wasn't going to get in her way, thats for sure. !f that nut(,ob wants to kill himself, then by all means go ahead; ! wasn't going to stop him6 )nyhow, someone called the 5aptain and the Master(of()rms, who came down with the Ship's Security to our office. They tackled down %2+, wrestled the knife from him, and tied him down to a chair. They literally strapped him to a chair until the %avy's paramedics arrived. *e was then taken in a straight(,acket to the %avy's Mental *ospital. )fter several weeks there, he was discharged from the military. ! must say that ! was really shaken up after this event. ! have a very #healthy# respect for the 1oddess Kali, and have been very careful about what ! ask of her. !t was <uite a learning e&perience, thats for sure6
