Kali is a black-skinned goddess who appears to be fierce and unapproachable. The story of Kali Satyavati includes an interesting reflection on the relation . A report by United Press trust of India stated that during the past. The internal sense of this story is that wife of Shiva or Kaali gives salvation by destroying name and form (of the medium). Hence, only saints or householders in. So the exact relationship between Shiva and Kali will be Lord Rama was incarnated; From Kali, Lord Krishna was incarnated (You are asking.
The inscription states that Heliodorus is a Bhagvatena, and a couplet in the inscription closely paraphrases a Sanskrit verse from the Mahabharata. Its inscription is a dedication to "Vasudeva", another name for Krishna in the Indian tradition. Scholars consider the "Vasudeva" to be referring to a deity, because the inscription states that it was constructed by "the Bhagavata Heliodorus" and that it is a "Garuda pillar" both are Vishnu-Krishna-related terms. These four inscriptions are notable for being some of the oldest-known Sanskrit inscriptions.
Balarama, Krishna, PradyumnaAniruddhaand Samba. Two Puranas, the Bhagavata Purana and the Vishnu Puranacontain the most elaborate telling of Krishna's story,  but the life stories of Krishna in these and other texts vary, and contain significant inconsistencies.

At Devaki's wedding, according to Puranic legends, Kamsa is told by fortune tellers that a child of Devaki would kill him. Kamsa arranges to kill all of Devaki's children.

Portrait of Lord Krishna meditating in the Padmasana posture. The legends of Krishna's childhood and youth describe him as a cow herder, a mischievous boy whose pranks earns him the nickname a Makhan Chor butter thiefand a protector who steals the hearts of the people in both Gokul and Vrindavana. The texts state, for example, that Krishna lifts the Govardhana hill to protect the inhabitants of Vrindavana from devastating rains and floods.
These metaphor-filled love stories are known as the Rasa lila and were romanticised in the poetry of Jayadevaauthor of the Gita Govinda. They are also central to the development of the Krishna bhakti traditions worshiping Radha Krishna. His interaction with the gopis at the rasa dance or Rasa-lila is an example. Krishna plays his flute and the gopis come immediately, from whatever they were doing, to the banks of the Yamuna Riverand join him in singing and dancing.
Even those who could not physically be there join him through meditation. They say that Shiva never spoke a single word until Shakti came into his life as Parvati. She became not only his wife, but also his student, asking questions, discussing and deliberating with him, till he revealed to the world the mysteries of life.
This is what he said. For you have taken care of my hunger unconditionally. When you come to me as Kamakhya, the goddess of pleasure, and hold me intimately as no one does do, I feel love.
This is one kind of love. But there is another kind of love. You made me play dice, laugh at the simple pleasure of games. You made me make you dolls and enjoy entertaining you. When you come to me as Durga, bearing weapons in your hand, and protect me, I feel secure and safe, and cared for, I also feel love. By granting me power over you, by defending me, protecting me, empowering me, you make me feel loved. This is the second kind of love. But there is yet another kind of love. You make me open my eyes.
What good is life if you fail to contact the spontaneous man who dwells in your own body? Your destiny is shamed. Do not give up gold for a piece of glass, nor leave heaven for a visit to hell. What good is there in rushing round the world? The eternal hero Iives in your own little room. Who is there for you to call your own? My heart, for whom do you shed your futile tears? Brothers and friends, let them be; the world is there.
Your own dear life is hardly your own. You have come alone, you will go alone The whole idea of renunciation is of a vision, of a great understanding, of looking into things in their reality. You need not escape from the world. You can remain in the world and become absolutely unattached. But if you feel, "Why carry the burden unnecessarily? But remember, the world has no value this way or that.
If it has no value, its renunciation also cannot have any value. If it is valuable, only then can its renunciation be valuable. But then there is no point in renouncing it; it is simply valueless. It is like a dream. When you awake, everything disappears. You have come alone, you will go alone, and between these two exists the dream.
To understand the dream, to become alert to it, is the birth of the novel man. He invites the whole world: Come to see me; the novel man is born.
The novel man lives in eternity, the ordinary man lives in time. This word 'Kali' has to be understood. Kali is the mother of time. But the mother of time is beyond time. Time is born out of it, but the womb out of which time is born is eternity. Eternity is the mother of time. Time is just a reflection of the eternal.
The Bauls worship Kali, the mother of time; they worship eternity. They seek and search eternity -- not that which changes but that which remains always and always, that which is beyond all flux, absolutely permanent, unmoving. They seek that hub of the existence. Symbolically it is called Kali. This word 'KALA' is very meaningful: The same word means time and death. It is beautiful, because time is death. The moment you enter into time, you are ready to die.
With birth, death has entered into you. When the child is born, he has entered into the realm of death. The birthday is also the deathday. Now only one thing is certain: Everything else is just uncertain; it may happen, it may not happen. But the moment a child is born, the moment the child has taken his first breath, one thing is absolutely certain -- that he will die. Entering into life is entering into death; entering into time is entering into death.
It means both time and death. And Kali means beyond time and beyond death. How to find eternity? What is the way? One has to understand the process of time. The process of time is horizontal: You drown yourself in the moment.
If you stand on the bank, then the river goes on passing. Ordinarily we are standing on the bank of time. The river goes on moving; one moment, another moment, and another, and the sequence of moments continues. This is how we ordinarily live, this is how we live in time. Then there is another way -- take a jump into the river, drown in the moment, the here- now. Then suddenly, time stops. Then you are moving in an altogether different dimension; the vertical dimension is eternity.
That is the meaning of Jesus' cross. The cross is a time symbol. It is made of two lines: On the horizontal line are the hands of Christ, and on the vertical line is his whole being.
Hands are symbolic of action: Having is in time; being is in eternity. So whatsoever you DO is in time, whatsoever you ARE is in eternity; whatsoever you achieve is in time, whatsoever is your nature is in eternity. Change from having, doing, towards being. This moment the turning can happen. This very moment, if you forget past and future, then time stops. Then nothing moves, then everything is absolutely silent and you start drowning in the here-now. That 'now' is eternity. Kali is a symbol of now, of the eternal, of the absolutely real.
To live moment to moment and not to bother about past and future is the way towards the novel man. If you are capable of being receptive, just simple words uttered by one who knows are enough. But if you don't understand, then things become very complex. Your non-understanding or non-receptivity makes things complex. It creates confusion, it puzzles you, it creates a chaos in your being.
If you can listen silently without your mind interfering, then simple words can overcome ignorance and disbelief.
The Bauls say, Even if you forbid, dear friend, I am helpless. My songs contain my prayers. Some flowers pray through the glamour of colors, and others, being dark, with fragrance.
Bauls don't know much philosophy; they are not philosophers. They are simple people of the earth. They are very simple people who can sing and dance. Their words are simple. If you love, if you trust, their small gestures can reveal much.
And it is always a question of love and trust. It is not a question of great metaphysical skill, because the more metaphysics you know, the more you will be puzzled. And the more you are acquainted with philosophy, the less is the possibility to come to understanding. The more you are full of knowledge, the less will be your understanding.
You will be too clouded, and too many thoughts will not allow you vision, clarity. Your mirror will be full of dust. Bauls say, "We don't make any distinction between a Hindu and a Mohammedan and a Christian Kali and Krishna are one. Kali and Krishna are one, male and female are one. Inside you, a new alchemy starts, and your inside man melts with the inside woman They sing, As the man and the woman in me unite in love, the brilliance of beauty, balanced on the bi-petalled lotus blooms in me, dazzles my eyes.
The rays outshine the moon, and the jewels glowing on the hoods of snakes. My skin and bone are turned to gold when the inner man and woman meet, when Krishna and Kali become one.
My skin and bone are tumed to gold, I am the reservoir of love, alive as the waves. A single drop of water has grown into a sea, unnavigable The whole problem of man is how to meet with the woman, and the whole problem of the woman is how to meet man.
- Kali and Krishna are one
In one ancient myth prevalent in many countries of the Far East, they say God created man and woman together, not as two beings; they were joined in one body. But then it became difficult.
From Kali to Krishna : A love song | Devdutt
There were conflicts and problems. The woman wanted to go to the East and the man was not willing. Or, the man was ready to do something and the woman wanted to rest. But they were together, their bodies were joined. So they complained and God cut their bodies separate.
Since then, every man is searching the woman, his woman, and every woman is searching her man. Now it is such a big crowd that it is very difficult to find who is your woman, who is your man. So much misery, and one goes on stumbling and groping in the dark.
It is almost impossible to find your woman. How will you find her? The myth says that if you can find, everything fits; you again become one. But it is very difficult to find.
But there is a way to find your woman, because the woman is not outside. Outside, at the most, are parallel similarities. When you fall in love with a woman, what really happens? This is what happens: When you fall in love with a man, what happens? Something inside you clicks and says, "Yes, this is the man, the right man.
Kali and Krishna
It is not that you find out all the pros and cons about the man and then you decide, or you compare the man with all the other men in the world, then you decide. No, something happens out of the blue. Suddenly you see that this is the man for whom you were waiting, for whom you were waiting for lives.
You carry an image of man, you carry an image of woman inside.
You are both, and you go on looking outside. Nobody is going to fit one hundred percent, because the woman that you find outside has her own images about you; you have your own images. It is very difficult to fit with each other.
So all marriages are always on the rocks, and people, by and by, learn how to carry on peacefully. They learn not to 'rock the boat'.
But nothing more can happen outside. Bauls say, "Deep inside you both exist -- Krishna and Kali. Let them meet there. And when this becomes a circle, when this meeting, when this inner copulation happens, a great orgasm, a great explosive orgasm begins which knows a beginning but knows no end.
Then you live an orgasmic life. Then you are no more finite, you become infinite. Break the barrier of words. Now, I am talking to you; I am using words. You can listen to my words -- then you have not listened to me. You can listen in such a way that the words are no more a barrier, but become vehicles. They no more create problems, but you listen exactly between the words, between two words, in the gaps.
You listen to my silence; then words and their barriers are broken. Then limits are conquered. This is the novel man. Now he knows no duality. He does not make any distinction between the sage and the fool. He makes no distinction between the man and the woman. All dualities have come to be united, all dualities have dissolved. Once you drop the words, dualities drop. Language creates duality, language exists through duality. It cannot indicate the non-dual. If I say 'day', immediately I create night.
If I say 'life', immediately I create death. If I say 'good', immediately bad is created. If I say 'no', just by the side of the no, yes is existing. Language can exist only through the opposite.
