This yantra brings forth the energy of Kali, one of the most awe-inspiring deities of the Hindu pantheon, and the only consort of Siva remaining autonomous and powerful unto herself. She is the energetic source of what we conceive of as our universe, and manifests the energetic original unity of the transcendental in her feminine form. Kali is also the annihilating and illuminating power of time. The energies of creation and dissolution are condensed in her yantra. Kali herself appears in the central drop or bindu as the conscious source or womb of the world. Kali is Supreme Mother. It is suggested that the symbols of the Kali yantra are to be drawn into the body of the viewer, for Kali is both a cosmic reality and psychic fact.
