The Might of Goddess Kaalratri 

Goddess Kaalratri, who is the seventh form of Goddess Durga, is  often shown riding a donkey. She has dark skin and wild hair and her third eye gives of a strong, fiery light  that takes away  all fear. She has a sword in one hand and the other  is in the Abhaya Mudra, which means “protection.”

It is  said that Kaalratri destroys ignorance and her fierce look shows how hard she works  to find the truth and justice. Time itself lives  in her, which shows that time is the  final truth. People are afraid  of her name because they think she is the most angry version  of the Divine Mother.

The Story and History 

Indian folklore has  a very old story about Goddess Kaalratri. The demon Raktabija could make a copy  of himself from every drop of blood that fell to the ground. She is thought to have beaten him. In her fight with Raktabija, Kaalratri drank his blood before  it could hit the ground, which beat him. In this story, she  is seen as the destroyer of evil and stupidity.
