A very powerful goddess in Hinduism, Mahakali is the repository of the ferocious nature of power. Though lot of negative attributes are associated with this goddess, worshiping her helps us get rid of evil forces. She is wearing garland of human skulls and is holding a beheaded human head.
Kali is a Hindu goddess associated with eternal energy. Literally meaning 'black', but has by folk etymology come to mean 'force of time (kala)'. Despite her negative connotations, she is today considered the goddess of time and change. Although sometimes presented as dark and violent, her earliest incarnation as a figure of annihilation still has some influence.
Kali is represented as the consort of god Shiva, on whose body she is often seen standing. She is associated with many other Hindu goddesses like Durga, Bhadrakali, Sati, Rudrani, Parvati and Chamunda. She is the foremost among the Dasa-Mahavidyas, ten fierce Tantric goddesses.
