“KALI and KRISHNA are but two names of feminine and masculine forms of the ONE consciousness. Shakti as mother endears her creation in both these aspects and delivers the Rest, on time. The darkest attributes absorb the cosmos and once again sustain with the eternal light. We face throughout the performance that time and space are but joyful myths that veil the ultimate Bliss as Reality.”
