Devi Kalratri is the most powerful of Durga's nine incarnations, and she is worshipped on the seventh day of Navratri Pooja.
'Kalratri' means 'the one who removes darkness and ignorance from the thoughts of her devotees'.
Despite her scary look, she always brings good fortune. As a result, she is also known as Shubankari.
Shumbha and Nishumbha were two terrible demons that lived once upon a time, Namuchi, their brother, was assinated by Indra Deva, the God of Heaven.
They were both devasted by the news and resolved to exact vengeance on the Gods, which they eventually defeated.
Maa Katyayani destroyed the demon Mahishasura, these three were his old pals.
Gods prayed to Goddess Parvati. She recognised their anxieties and created a new goddess, Chandi, to assist them. Chandi was able to kill almost all the demons sent by Shumbha and Nishumha.
या देवी सर्वभूतेषु माँ कालरात्रि रूपेण संस्थिता।नमस्तस्यै नमस्तस्यै नमस्तस्यै नमो नम:।।
एक वेधी जपाकर्णपूरा नग्ना खरास्थिता।लम्बोष्ठी कर्णिकाकणी तैलाभ्यक्तशरीरिणी।।
She is linked to the crown chakra. Those who believe in her receive knowledge, wealth, and power. Her devotees are blessed with good fortune, which helps them to be fearless.
