Jayashri Ma's continual state of spiritual merger with Adya Shakti Kali, who gained widespread attention in the early 20th century, was looked at to be an unorthodox female guru. She is an underground practitioner, as are most Shakta tantrika practitioners in West Bengal, who is believed to have abilities to bless, heal, and predict the future.
