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.
