Kalratri


The seventh aspect of Maa Durga is Kalratri Devi. Her complexion is as dark as the night. Her cascading hair are loose and she is seen wearing a garland that radiates light as bright as lightning. She is fearsome with her menacing three eyes radiating fire. She is mounted on an ass. She has four hands, of which, the top right hand is in a gesture of rendering boon to all. The other hand on her right is rendering fearlessness. The top left hand is holding an iron dagger and the other hand is holding a sickle. Although she has a menacing appearance, she always delivers favorable results. So she is also called “Shubhankari”. Devi Kalratri destroys the evil. By the Goddess's grace, the devotees overcome their fear of fire, water, animals and foes.
