Don't mess with Kali. She's a goddess of transformation & will kick your ass. ~ trish :-) "Kali, or the dark goddess, is the fearful and ferocious form of the mother goddess Durga. She stands with one foot on the thigh, and another on the chest of her husband, Shiva." *pinner ~ trish http://www.ArousedWoman.com #goddess #Kali #Hinduism #vedic #arousedwoman #mythology #religion #Shiva #transformation #death
"Kali stands with one foot on the thigh, and another on the chest of her husband, Shiva. Kālī is the Hindu goddess associated with empowerment, shakti. She is the fierce aspect of the goddess Durga (Parvati). The name Kali comes from kāla, which means black, time, death, lord of death: Shiva. Since Shiva is called Kāla— the eternal time — the name of Kālī, his consort, also means "Time" or "Death" (as in "time has come"). An end of old habits, beginning of new period in life."
We must control, subdue and conquer the demons of anger, greed, and lust or they WILL rule, control, subdue and conquer our minds and intellects and degrade our souls. Save your souls and destroy your demons through the wisdom of scriptures and constant watch over our mind and senses. Kali, or the dark goddess, is the fearful and ferocious form of the mother goddess Durga. She stands with one foot on the thigh, and another on the chest of her husband, Shiva, who had to come under Her feet, to save the world from destruction, when Her fury could not be quenched. This also is a lesson for males that they occasionally have to submit and give in to female temper (when they are in no mood to listen!) in order to keep the peace in the house and in the world.
Kali, or the dark goddess. DEFEND!

Loïe Fuller (1862 - 1928)
1900. Vintage photo
Loie Fuller a inspiré de nombreux artistes Loïe Fuller, née Mary Louise Fuller, était une danseuse américaine originaire de Fullersburg dans l’Illinois. Née en 1862 elle se fait connaître en tant que comédienne en octobre 1891, lors de la création de la pièce Quack Medical Doctor à Holyoke, dans le Massachusetts. Rêvetue d’une longue chemise de soie blanche, elle improvise de grands mouvements pour interpréter une femme sous hypnose. Le public réagit alors spontanément en s’écriant « Un papillon !… Une orchidée !… ». C’est ainsi qu’elle crée sa première chorégraphie, la Danse serpentine, au Park Theatre de Brooklyn, à New York, le 15 février 1892. La même année Fuller vient en Europe pour s’installer à Paris. Elle débute aux Folies Bergères et devient rapidement l’une des artistes les plus importantes et les mieux payées dans le monde du spectacle. A l’occasion de la grande Exposition universelle de 1900 Loie Fuller danse sous la lumière d’un arc électrique dans un palais de verre, construit par Saint-Gobain et la verrerie de Saint-Denis : le Pavillon de l’électricité. Douze mille lampes électriques éblouissent les spectateurs et permettent d’obtenir les premières photographies nocturnes d’une Exposition et des vidéos du ballet. Dès 1892, les pièces de Loïe Fuller avaient été d’une très grande innovation. La danseuse, vêtue d’une immense robe claire (qui pouvait parfois utiliser plusieurs centaines de mètres de tissu), évoluait sur un fond noir, éclairée par des lumières de couleurs. Des machinistes, placés à différents endroits de la salle, dirigeaient sur elle la lumière d’un projecteur qu’ils tenaient de la main gauche, cependant que, de la droite, ils faisaient tourner un disque de verre divisé en secteurs de couleurs variées. Elle utilisait occasionnellement des miroirs qui renvoyaient sn image à l’infini. Cette mise en scène correspondait exactement aux théories optiques contemporaines (celles d’Eugène Chevreul, par exemple) qui inspiraient les peintres de l’avant-garde, les Néo-impressionnistes dont Signac et Seurat, et utilisaient cette nouvelle technologie qu’était l’électricité. Mallarmé la considérait comme l’incarnation même de l’utopie symboliste, il décrivit la danse de Loïe Fuller comme « ivresse d’art et, simultané, accomplissement industriel ». Malgré une longue et impressionnante carrière, elle fut pratiquement oubliée après sa mort à Paris le 1er janvier 1928 http://lescarnetsdetif.wordpress.com/tag/loie-fuller/ http://turnofthecentury.tumblr.com/search/Loie+Fuller http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lo%C3%AFe_Fuller

Goddess Lajja Gauri is a form of creatrix, Aditi-Shakti.
