Kali's anger got out of hand more than once ... in one instance, Lord Shiva became a crying baby boy in an effort to pacify Her. Kali's nurturing side took over Her anger; it was another time that he had to lie down to soothe Her destructive path.
Finally, the comparatively recent devotional movement largely conceives of Kali as a straightforwardly benevolent mother-goddess. Kali is associated with many devis (goddesses) as well as the deva (god) Shiva.
