Mahākāla is referable to the Divine from the conversion in Buddhism.
His name comes from the Sanskrit word for the ability beyond cause and effect as "time, pure and simple death and darkness as a metaphor for death". That is, "mahā" means he is great and "kāla" means about that he is darker than black.
He is the god of the abysmal darkness and jet blackness literally. And he is also said that the Hindu deity Shiva metamorphoses.

In the cabala Buddhism, Kalaratri is the entirely-converted godness as disaster personified from the Hindu dark goddess, one of Yama the Pandemonium Great's 3 sisters.
As can be expected from the her name that comes from the Hindu word for the dark night of Doomsday, she handles the unhappiness, disaster and cruel realities of death. They are the total opposite to the ability of her older sister Mahasri.
But she has love for her sister, so she follow Mahasri close behind anywhere. That is "The worse luck now, the better another time."
