Terrible-faced, horrible, with dishevelled hair and four arms, Divine, adorned with a necklace of sliced-off heads; Holding in her two left hands a freshly hacked head and a cleaver, And in Her right displaying the "fear not" and boon-bestowing hand gestures.; Lustrously black like a large cloud, and robed with nothing but the sky. Her breasts high and uplifted; A skirt of cut arms hanging from Her waist, laughter bellowing out, Shouting terribly, dwelling on the very fierce cremation grounds, With fangs for teeth and a pearl necklace that swings to the right as She moves, Sitting on the Great Lord, who has taken the form of a corpse; Surrounded by jackals and their terrible, all-pervading cries, Engaging Great Time in the act of reversed sexual intercourse; Her face happy and pleased, like a lotus - He who thinks on Kali thus will have all his wishes fulfilled.
