Notably, Kali, also known as Dakshina Kālikā, is a Hindu goddess, who is considered to be the Master of death, time, and change. She is also said to be the Parvati, the supreme of all powers, or the ultimate reality. Kali's origin story saw her emerge from Lord Shiva and she is the ultimate manifestation of Shakti and the mother of all living beings and destroys the evil in order to protect the innocent. Over time, Kali has been worshipped by devotional movements and tantric sects variously as the Divine Mother, Mother of the Universe, Adi Shakti, or Parvati. Shakta Hindu and Tantric sects additionally worship her as the ultimate reality or Brahman. She is also seen as the divine protector and the one who bestows moksha or liberation. How this Kali refers to that Kali, is yet to be seen.
