Kali, Durga, Draupadi….and Illusion

(written 4/30)

Reading about Kali. If ‘clothes’ are illusion/maya/allure, then
Draupadi’s vastraharan takes on a new resonance–did Duryodhan wish to
strip the illusory from the feminine to reduce it to abject/ object?
That was his anger, wasn’t it, that Draupadi had refused him, the
winner of Yudhishthir’s everything? Did Krishna then preserve honor,
and with it the necessity of illusion for those such as Duryodhan?
