Sacred Trans Orgasmic Union with goddess Kali transforms the demon of lust into Shiva - the Higher Self. The five skulls on Kali's head are the five senses which she uses in order to transcend this reality & is ruled by the Moon. She engages in intercourse with the demon on top, but cuts off the it's head & transforms it into Enlightenment & gives it back to Shiva at the head & feet. The event takes place at the charnel ground, where the death of the ego takes place through burning. ~Amrita
Divine Mother Kali Says the Mahanirvana Tantra: “Just as all colors disappear in black, so all names and forms disappear in her." Kali is so called because She devours Kala (Time) and then resumes Her own dark formlessnes. The reclined Shiva lying prostrate under her feet suggests that without the power of Kali (Shakti), Shiva is inert.
