Why the tongue of Goddess Kaali is outside her mouth?

At one point in the battle Devi Kaali began the dance of death, as she danced she fought and destroyed the demons. But having conquered them all her state of dance was like the lightning storm- beautiful, ceaseless and dangerous. In her state Devi Kali did not stop and so fear arose in the hearts of the good ones, that if this dance did not stop destruction beyond what is needed may come to pass.

To bring Devi Kali out of this state Lord Shiva lay in the path of her dance and when the toe of Devi Kaali touched Lord Shiv, she came out of that energy state and in an embarrassed, astonished manner for having stepped on her husband Shiv she stuck her tongue out. This episode generated the beloved iconography of the Goddess as standing on Shiv with her tongue lolling out of her mouth, the suspended moment of the Devi Kali.


Just a thought

We never get what we want,

We never want what we get,

We never have what we like,

We never like what we have.

And still we live love.

That’s life…

It’s true that we don’t know

What we’ve got until it’s gone,

But it’s also true that we don’t know

What we’ve been missing until it arrives.


Positive thought affirmations

Thoughts become things! Make them all great ones!


Depression is nothing but an electrical sensation in some part of the brain. To counter that, sing, dance, and serve. Don’t sit and think about yourself all the time.
