A statue of the goddess Kali in the Hindu pantheon

Kali is the goddess of time, paradoxes, and destruction in the Hinduism pantheon. For me, she is my maternal goddess. This means that I feel my strongest connection with her. I was first exposed to her as a young child, via the Indiana Jones Temple of Doom movie (this movie today for me is a huge guilty pleasure). Ever since she stuck around quietly in the back of my mind. I didn’t become a devotee of hers until I was around 18 or 19 years old.
