But white and blue lights to honor Mother Theresa? Not so much.
The Times of India – In a breathtaking spectacle, Goddess Kali was projected on the Empire State Building in New York.
Artist Andrew Jones designed the portrait of the goddess to make the point that Mother Nature now more than ever needs a fierce avatar to fight the dangers of pollution and extinction, Firstpost.com reported.
Uh huh. I know what Maa Kali is. Patron Goddess of the Thuggee Cult. Goddess of time, destruction and death.
A variety of writers and thinkers have found Kali an exciting figure for reflection and exploration, notably feminists and participants in New Age spirituality who are attracted to goddess worship. [For them], Kali is a symbol of wholeness and healing, associated especially with repressed female power and sexuality. [However, such interpretations often exhibit] confusion and misrepresentation, stemming from a lack of knowledge of Hindu history among these authors, [who only rarely] draw upon materials written by scholars of the Hindu religious tradition.
That figures. My Indian friends are Christians, and they’re not fond of Kali. Just sayin’.
