A modern interpretation of the Warrior Goddess, Kali Durga mythology, fused with an ancient Yoga philosophy of overcoming ignorance – the root to all suffering.
In our story, the heartless, brutal warrior Kali is plagued with the confusion of ignorance and travels on a mission to destroy the 4 demons that grow from misperception: arrogance, attachment, refusal and fear. As she kills each demon, it is actually a failure initiating a darker demon to rise.
With each demon, the warrior becomes weaker, until the final demon kills her – consumed by the branches of ignorance. Her death symbolizes that when we attempt to forcefully kill the demons within us, it will only make them stronger.
From this realization, the goddess of compassion enters and Kali is reborn as the warrior goddess Durga who rather than trying to attack the demons, realizes that they are a part of her, and a part of all of us.
She accepts the shadowside in herself and others, and it into the light of consciousness. This moment of acceptance and personal responsibility gives her the power to own her thoughts and actions, and to direct energy from a place of clear perception, rooted strength and graceful wisdom.
