night of "diwali" is believed to be a " kaal-ratri " . As per the puraans '
kaal-ratri ' is not very auspicious. Now a question arises why the most
auspicious prayer of goddess LAXMI (the goddess of wealth) is done on a less
auspicious date ?
answer to this question is available in occult literature and Bhavishya Puraana.
In the kaalikhand of 'shakti-sangam' tantra literature ,there is a
mention of very pious & auspicious nights ,among this is the night of "diwaali".
The night of diwali is also regarded as "kaalratri" (the night of death )& an
explanation is given in this regard . According to the jividyarnav tantra
kaalratri is explained as a powerful deity. Kaalratri here means Goddess Kaali.
Thus by saying that Diwaali is Kaalraatri we mean that it is an ideal day to
Worship Goddess Kaali.
prayer of goddess kaali brings prosperity in lives of people . A mantra in
MANTRA MAHODADHI means "I bow before you ,O ! powerful goddess whose
hallow is extremely shiny, whose hairs are spread unevenly, who wears a black
dress , has 3 eyes & is very beautifully ornamented ,who is very merciful & is
served by gods themselves"
It is a
myth among masses that Goddess Kaali is worshipped only by taantriks or
tantra-saadhaks who want to develop an expertise on the ten mahaavidyaas.
According to Shrimad-devi Puraan Goddess kaali is believed as the destroyer
of evil on one hand and the provider of prosperity & success in every sphere of
life, on the other she has been called GANESHWARI goddess of gods, who
relieves her devotees from all sort of pains.
night of deewali the period after midnight is known as "mahanishaa" .occult
prayers done in this period are very effective. If one prays laxmi jee
during this period he is provided with ample monetary earnings. This period is
very significant for those who want monetary success in life .According to
Bhavishya puraana :
"ardharatrat paranyachchh muhurtgyamev cha
samahaaraatri rutitashta tautam chakshayam
means that the period of 2 hours after midnight is very auspicious. All prayers
done in this period result in huge monetary gains and fulfillment of all
Maha Kali Pooja
Maa Maha Kali is the
fearful and ferocious form of the mother goddess Durga.On one hand she punishes
the guilty while on the other she blesses her devotees with virtues of all kind.
As the legend goes, in the battle, Kali was so much involved in the killing
spree that she got carried away and began destroying everything in sight. To
stop her, Lord Shiva
threw himself under her feet. Shocked at this sight, Kali stuck out her tongue
in astonishment, and put an end to her homicidal rampage. Hence the common image
of Kali shows her in her mêlée mood, standing with one foot on Shiva's chest,
with her enormous tongue stuck out.
Kali Pooja is done to
diminish the ego and all negative tendencies that hinder spiritual progress and
material prosperity. Performed on the night of
Kartik Amavasya, which falls in October/November, Kali Pooja is an
intense invocation to the fearsome goddess. The main purpose of the pooja is to
seek the help of the goddess in destroying evil - both in the outside world and
The legend goes that long ago the demons, Shumbha and Nishumbha, disturbed the
peace of Indra, the king of gods, and his empire (heaven). After extensive and
endless battles, the gods lost all hope and the demons became stronger.
took refuge in the Himalayas, the holy mountains, the home of Lord Shiva and
Parvati. The shaken gods sought protection from
Mahamaya Durga, the goddess of Shakti.
Kali was born from Durga's forehead as Kal Bhoi
Nashini, created to save heaven and earth from the growing cruelty of
the demons. Along with Dakini and
Jogini, her two escorts, she set on
her way to end the war and kill the devils.
There was chaos all around. After slaughtering the demons, Kali made a garland
of their heads and wore it around her neck. In the bloodbath, she lost control
and started killing anyone who came her way. The gods started running for their
lives. The only source of protection seemed Lord Shiva, Durga's consort.
Seeing the endless slaughter, Shiva devised a plan to save the world. He lay
down in the path of the rampaging Kali. When the goddess unknowingly stepped on
him, she regained her senses. The well-known picture of Ma Kali, with her tongue
hanging out, actually depicts the moment when she steps on the Lord and repents.
That momentous day is celebrated ever since. Kali, also called
Kali, is the first of the 10 avatars (incarnations) of Durga. Kali
is performed essentially to seek protection against drought and war, for general
happiness, health, wealth, and peace. It is a tantrik pooja and performed only at
midnight on Amavasya (new moon night) in November.
