The Tantric Kali Shrine
The Goddess Kali was an honored and powerful force at our 2019 Temple Scarlet Retreat. With the remaining 2019 profits, Temple Scarlet acquired a one of a kind Tantric Kali statue. Though the 2020 Temple Scarlet retreat was suspended, a few of our community members spent the weekend doing the sacred work of assembling and consecrating a shrine. The Tantric Kali shrine is maintained by Temple Scarlet and is located at The Gaea Retreat Center in the area known as Old Way.
ABOUT THE STATUE
The hand carved wooden statue depicting Tantric Kali comes from the Pashupatinat Hindu Temple, the largest temple complex in Nepal. The statue was one of many crafted specifically for the annual Kali festival, during which the statues are ceremonially burned. This statue, however, remained intact and made its way to the Aquarius metaphysical store in KC before being purchased by the Temple Scarlet organization and donated to The Gaea Retreat Center.
ABOUT TANTRIC KALI
Kali is a Hindu Goddess of many faces, and this depiction of her is best known as Tantric Kali. Tantric Kali dances upon her willing consort Shiva, who acts in a grounding and supporting role, allowing Tantric Kali to express her wild and divine power to it's fullest. Kali often acts as a force of great change, clearing a way for better things.
