The First Night of Durga Puja


Tonight is our first night of Kali Puja.
She is making ready to consume karma and pain in the flames of  the dhuni.
She is the furious form of Mother Durga.
She is said to be the brave warrior Goddess of every battle with the demon race.
She dances upon Shiva’s chest, and He gives Her all His power.
She is the Shakti of the world.

The love between Her and Her children is vast, and though She looks terrifying there is nothing She would not do for Her students.
Neem Karoli Baba taught me how to worship the Beloved Black Mother.
He taught me that in spite of Her terrifying appearance, She is gentle and calm as She consumes the ego that courses through Her students.

To laugh at one’s burning ego is the goal.
I ask Kali to allow all seekers to feel the flames of the dhuni this night and to bring them the warmth of Divine love.
Mother Kali stands between her children and the darkness of the ego.

I love you all so very much.
