Twenty-Four Aspects of Mother Kali
By Babaji Bob Kindler
From the back cover:Who indeed could be so careless as to forget their own mother, what to speak of the Mother of all souls? The Divine Mother of the Universe — the true Mother of all beings, their eternal Source and the essence of their very existence — has been forgotten, Her ineffable presence somehow overlooked! This oversight, this loss of memory, is tragic and the cause of great suffering and misery among the inhabitants of the world. Only those beset with chronic spiritual amnesia could be so forlorn as to arrive at such a lamentable condition!
The Twenty-Four Aspects of Mother Kali represent in book form an attempt to remind humanity of their divine parentage, of their source of origin, and of their perfect inner nature. In order to re-introduce humanity to the Universal Mother, twenty-four powerful representations which attend Her remarkable personage and which are eternal portions of Her august form are discussed throughout these pages.
This book is a "must read," not only for aspirants and devotees, but also for followers of Eastern religion and philosophy and for every interested advocate of the Divine Mother path, regardless of cultural bias, personal preference, or historical orientation.
Mother Kali is the Universal Archetype, the primeval Matriarch, the all-pervasive, indivisible ocean of pure Consciousness which is simultaneously Transcendent, Immanent and Absolute. As the great sage, Vyasa, has stated in the ancient writings of Vedic lore and scripture; "The power of the Divine Mother is very great. This whole cosmos is urged into activity by Her and thus goes rolling on and on incessantly. Even the Divine Incarnations are under the influence of Her power and perform their various functions continually."
