Dashinkali Temple is an ancient, historic and religious property of Nepal which has an exquisite and more than millennium years old legend of its establishment in the reign period of Manadeva of Lichchavi dynasty which was founded by Supushpa, the first Aryans and Licchchavi ruler of Nepal.
Mahakali is an intricate incarnation of goddess Annapurna who is consort of Mahakal(Pashupatinath). Dashinkali inscribe Mahakali situated in Dashin(South) direction of Kathmandu.
As lord Shiva is never worshiped for sacrifice so does Mahakali. She does not gratify on sacrifice.The custom of sacrifice is incited through various myths and superstitious culture of human beings.
The myriad devotees of goddess Dashinkali still argue that goddess Dashinkali does not satisfy with sacrifice. They believe sacrifice is for making her warriors happy. Many opponents of animal sacrifice, do vegetarian sacrifice of coconuts. In contrast, many proponents believe that sacrifice of animals averts animals' sufferings giving them reincarnation to the place of goddess. It may support the mythology of an immortal state of a soul.
In Hindus holy Vedas and Puran,it is written that her blue body with three eyes,each eye is made up of the Sun, the Moon and fire respectively. But some writers unknowingly named her as Dark Mother.Nevertheless her illumination is vigorously praised in ShivaPuran too.
Skewing glorious world history of Roman empire, more than decades of historical dark ages in the lap of its history, it is seen that an era in which starvation, outbreak of epidemic disease such as plague, unemployment and ignorance dwelled in the empire galloping millions death of innocent,uneducated and starving people. It is an ironical example to differentiate darkness versus unknowingly so called Dark Mother. Whereas voyaging to her mystery, Kalidas( Das means servant that is Mahakali's servant)a renowned classical Sanskrit poet has written many epic poems and masterpiece of literature in 5th century, was blessed by Mahakali with a great deal of knowledge. Before her kind boon he was regarded as Mahamurkha(the most foolish) by other kings and even by her spouse princess Vidyotma. He got his name Kalidas only after he gained blessings of Mahakali.
All religion teach an essence of non-violence but violence is an evil deed of human body.
Little knowledge is dangerous,speculation with thorough knowledge is applicable.

Sacrificing animal is blind belief. It is against the non violence. As non violence is root of Hindus and all other religion. Kali ma is merciness in inner mind and all living beings is her own child. Hence, how does she enjoy of own child's bloodshed. Do vegetable sacrifice as coconut.
