The Kali Nityas

Like Lalita, Kali has fifteen Nityas or eternities, but these are associated with the waning rather than the waxing Moon. O All-Knowing One, if I am known, what need is there for revealed scriptures and sadhana? If I am unknown, what use for puja and revealed texts? I am the essence of creation, manifested as woman, intoxicated with sexual desire, in order to know you as guru, you with whom I am one. Even given this, Mahadeva, my true nature still remains secret
