Kālī is the Hindu goddess associated with empowerment, shakti. She is the fierce aspect of the goddess Durga (Parvati). The name Kali comes from kāla, which means black, time, death, lord of death: Shiva. Since Shiva is called Kāla— the eternal time — the name of Kālī, his consort, also means "Time" or "Death" (as in "time has come").
The wise man knows the Self, and he plays the game of life. He understands the nature of things. His heart is not smudged by right or wrong, just as the sky is not smudged by smoke. How rare he is! ~ The Ashtavakra Gita
