Kali Names, Song & Prayer - काली के नाम, संगीत और प्रार्थना



Kali's Names



Translation:

I call to you: Kali of the cremation grounds, auspicious Kali, she who bears the skull cup (remover of the ego), secret one and she who is above all else; Ultimate goddess, black night, eternal mother, she who is the one beyond the fear of time and who illuminates the entire clan wave of my ancestors; She who gives desire, is desire and desired, the one who is the nature of desire, whose thighs are anointed with the juice of musk and who moves softly like the elephants...

Listen to the mantra:

This mantra is used during our Kali Puja, particularly to honor Maa Kali as Maha Devi, the Great Goddess. It is a delving into Her mysteries beyond the form and shape of the manifest realm, into the inexplicable where sound alone conveys meaning, not words.

We utilize this mantra to signal our devotion and connection to the magnificence of Goddess beyond our attachments to Her; we sing Her names to honor our connection to Her mysteries and Her manifest illumination here and now, howsoever that may appear to our minds, hearts and spirits.

Use this mantra in your daily practice to open your heart and honor your commitment to the Divine in all forms, with all names.




Song to Kali



Translation:

Vibration of the Universe, AUM, great goddess Kali, I ponder you who resides in the cremation grounds, (place of the ego's falling away), may you grant your devotee the delight of your embrace.

Listen to the mantra:

This mantra for Kali is used during our pujas at SHARANYA's devi mandir (goddess temple). It is a powerful and sweet, sattvic (high vibrational) mantra that brings us into harmony with Her.

Use this mantra in your daily practice to invoke and honor Kali Maa on all levels - as the Ultimate Reality, Great Mother, and dearest personal Goddess.





Praise to the Ultimate Mother



Translation:

Vibration of the Universe, She Who is all that can be perceived or conceived in the mind, She Who is perfect peace, She Who is the Infinite Beyond Time, the Ultimate Divine, She Who is and is beyond darkness, I am One with Her and All Divinity.

Listen to the mantra:

This mantra for Kali is used during our pujas at SHARANYA's devi mandir (goddess temple). It is a powerful mantra which invokes bija mantras, or "seed" mantras, which contain the vibrational essence of the divinity they invoke.

Hrim is the mantra frequently used to invoke Mahadevi, the Great Goddess, and is the last bija mantra chanted in the Devi Mahatmyam or Chandi Pathah, the famous story of how Mahadevi saves the world from evil forces, and a powerful reminder to invoke Her within ourselves to battle our fears and our egos, and ultimately bring peace to our souls. Srim is connected with a number of different primal goddesses, and has the effect of increasing the intensity of the mantra. Krim is Maa Kali's bija mantra, holding Her divine essence. Thus, through these bijas, we move from the ultimate power of Goddess, and become more focused until we invoke Kali Maa specifically. With this mantra we honor Her as the essence of the universe, the Great Mother from whom all things emerge and to whom all things return.

Use this mantra in your daily practice to invoke and honor Kali Maa on all levels - as the Ultimate Reality, Great Mother, and dearest personal Goddess.
