Kali , also known as Kalika , is the Hindu goddess associated with eternal energy. The name Kali comes from Kāla which means black, time, death, lord of death, Shiva. Kali means the black one. Since Shiva is called Kāla - the eternal time, Kālī, his consort, also means the Time or Death (as in time has come). Hence, Kali is 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. More complex Tantric beliefs sometimes extend her role so far as to be the ultimate reality or Brahman. She is also revered as Bhavatarini (literally redeemer of the universe). Comparatively recent devotional movements largely conceive Kali as a benevolent mother goddess.
