Kali, the Essential Power of Time and Transformation

Posted: July 14, 2012 / in: Blog / 10 comments

Is There Really an Art of Dealing with Time?

Perhaps yes, since so much is written and spoken about it. Since time immemorial, the human being has been preoccupied with the passing and manifestation of the energy of time. Nowadays we often hear people saying “i don’t have time” or “time is passing faster” but is it really true? The tyranny of the agenda and schedule that are ruling todays society are another facet of what we generally call TIME.

And even if TIME seem to take all our life we pay very little attention to it: we spend it as if we have an infinite amount and we complain about it as if we are always poor of it.

Time is a multi-faceted concept which contains not only the understanding of our daily habits, but also the understanding of the origin of the Universe. For most people, it is merely a matter of days, hours and seconds which decide the structure of their lives, while some consider it to be an objective reality.
For others, time is a magical, subtle and transforming notion, an ineffable spell which purifies and alters everything it touches.

The issue of the mysterious energy of time awakens great fascination due to the fact that when we approach this subject we question our passive submission to time and thus we have the possibility to access a superior and mysterious level of life.

The spiritual tradition of TANTRA is describing the reality of TIME as the embodiment of the Universal feminine energy that give the transformation impulse to the entire creation. She is the Great Cosmic Power Kali, the DIvine Mother of TIME, DEATH and TRANSFORMATION.

The relationship with time is at the same time the relationship with the Great Cosmic Power Kali and it conceals more that just our mere participation in the game in which time, as a mysterious energy, enslaves us, just because, historically and collectively, we accept it – DUE TO IGNORANCE – as an inevitable fact.

Pantha Rei

In his wanderings through the labyrinth of life, man is watched at every moment by the terror-inflicting shadow of death and all his high goals and noble aspirations are vitiated by the threat of this tragic end. The paralyzing and foolish fear of death is that which makes man even more mortal. No attempt on a spiritual path would be fully significant, nor technique, unless this fear is not overcome, at least to a small extent. Death should be permanently faced with temerity, because only in this way the meaning of Time can be completely experienced and understood. This is also why Tantra indicates the frantic worship of Kali, as the first and most important discipline of spiritual knowledge.

There are many distinct forms or hypostasis of Kali that are mentioned in secret tantric books. In most of her representations, prevail mostly terrible characteristics but in fact we should NEVER draw the wrong conclusion that Kali only represents the destructive aspects of the power of God regarding that what is evil and opposes spiritual evolution. That which exists, even time, is transcended, the eternal night of endless peace and happiness (Maharatri), is also called Kali. And she is also the one who determines Shiva to unfold the next cycle of Creation. In short, we can say that the Great Cosmic Power Kali, one of the most touching personifications of the primary feminine energy of the cosmos, symbol of the power that embodies the transcendental, represents a certain power of God in all its aspects.

From the 14th to the 21st of July, Adina and I will host a special retreat in Stevns Klint, Denmark, part of our Tantric Summer camps , dedicated to the knowledge and direct experience related to Kali. We also kept this first Maha Vidya Yoga Camp in Romania, 2 years ago, and it was a great success for hundreds of enthusiastic and open hearted participants.

Held in a wonderful and peaceful location that is very nourishing for the soul, this year’s camp will be packed with many very practical aspects for any sincere aspirant on the Maha Vidya path and will represent a strong impulse for inner alchemy, deep transformation and awareness, according to everyone’s inner preparation and readiness. There will be given many insights on this mysterious and full of love Great Cosmic Mother, simple ways and techniques to relate to Her, but also many surprises, and among them we will have Miss Shakti show, a celebration of outer but mostly inner beauty, harmony and truth that manifest in and through the women.

We live nowadays times of great transformation and revelation, and these require to be fully present here and now. It is also now that the Great Cosmic Power of Time and Transformation can be easily understood and contemplated with all her manifestations.

A very beautiful and intense week, a bliss for the soul, starts to unveil already. Participants started to show up already and we are all looking forward to experience Her divine ways of manifestation and grace during this camp and not only.

    Dear Advaitananda

    This is very very interesting – about time and death!

    When I was a child, I many times contemplated the time, especially when big changes happened in my life, I was sometimes starring into a floor with many patternes and wondering about the passing of time I was entering into a very special state where it seemed like past, present and future were united.

    I was wondering that here i sit now – and tomorrow i will be in this very different place and in this very different situation and my soul was kind of searching for this mystery that I am the same, now I am here – tomorrow i am there, and I will still be the same and what is actually the reality of this experience.

    It made me enter a kind of eternity feeling which is very beautiful and mysterious.

    Reading your article i suppose that this must be a resonance with KALI?

    thank you for your great work

    best regards

    May you have the most wonderful and fulfilling camp ever and the grace of Kali may it be overflowed over you all for having such an event!

    I just had the Intensity and Transformation through Kali’ Grace meditation and it was one of the best ones I’ve had this year. I felt the Great Mother at the beginning of the meditation coming at me, into my aura and working with my energetic structure… And a powerful wave of energy flooded my bodies and started to energize me and purify my structures.
    Thank you for organizing this camp…

    Thank you for the wonderful conference we had this afternoon. The steps of the technique you described were very revealing to me. Now I start to understand some things I left behind in my spiritual practice and it seems they are very important aspect.
    Still I will have to ask you personally about some things which might be specific to me, but that’s for a personal talk when you have time. See ya!

  6. Danish_flavor says:

    The conference today surprised me and others also, I give you that…
    I could say that a good conclusion after listening to some fundamental principles about couple relationship would also be:
    “Be a better woman if you want a better man”. I think many of us have to think from this perspective in our pursue for happiness!

    These lessons about Kali are indeed something. I must say I didn’t understand 100% some of the aspects explained about her but I know there are some explanations in the Kali book also, so in case we don’t go again over it I’m thinking to take it from there also and meditate about those points.. 🙂

  8. TheSpirit says:

    It seems like one of the biggest mysteries of all times – the TIME – has a direct approach which I as a ordinary person did not know about… I’m still trying to get the point, as understanding is not as simple as reading about it… 🙁

  9. Straight Point says:

    What not so many people know is that Kali, being a force of the Universe, is present in our lives even if we know about her or not. Her ways of guiding us are sometimes hidden in the situations we encounter, people we meet, and so on…

    Even the events described from Romania, especially the turning of events which appeared lately is such resonance… so may Her bestow more grace upon people, because it’s working!

  10. This Kali camp was really amazing, and feel that I cannot even nearly perceive all the effects that have started to appear.
    I feel my speed of evolution was doubled, and it feels like I have been away around 6 months, though it was only a week. I had really basic and profound changes in my view upon different aspects of my life, and problems I was considering being huge before the camp, now seems like small and unimportant waves.
    I also feel a strong inspiration, specially related to Kali and the elements of nature, where I can perceive how I constantly interact and is nourished by the elements- the macrocosmic ocean, and specially the sun and the earth element.
    The highlights of the camp was for me the ritual and the Miss Shakti contest which I perceived as a truly initiatic journey. As a participant I felt that all of us women became channels of much bigger energies, and I felt the presence of many beautiful, helping and guiding higher entities that manifested through us, and helped us to feel and manifest states that we are not usually experiencing. Also this view I discussed with other women who felt the same way.
    The fact that these “Shakti” events were so strong, I feel was because of the great field that we had build uptil then, with the meditations and the absolutely great talks Advaitananda kept during the week. The talks were really amazing and mindblowing, and in the same time extremely funny. Advaitas “black” Kali-like humour showed he was very inspired by her and in resonance with her, in the smallest details, the examples and words he used, everything was a living example of Kalis way of being.
    I felt a great understanding of Kali was tranfered to my mind and being through these lectures.
    Thanks a lot to both Adina & Advaita for this great experience that I feel will echo in my soul for a long time.
    I will definitely go every year to these amazing Mahavidya camps, and I wish for many, many more people to discover their existence since it is truly magic what happens there.

    Love & Light
