When we invoke Kali through the above mantra, we are saying, "I want true spiritual advancement by the most powerful and direct route, the consequences to my ego notwithstanding."
The mantra means:
AUM, salutations to Her who is the First & Dark One, the Supreme Primordial Feminine, who ruthlessly cuts through illusion to the unabridged truth of existence. I surrender to Her.
So if you choose this route, its important that you realize what you are in for. It will be intense, possibly unnerving, probably uncomfortable, certainly disruptive to one or more aspects of your mundane life, and also very effective in a short amount of time. She will burn down everything but pure consciousness.
The Goddess Kali can in few hours give you more progress than you would attain on your own in 10 years.
Are you up for it?
