On the Saptami tithi or the seventh day Maa appears in the form of Kaalratri. This form of Maa is extremely powerful and intolerant of evil. Maa appeared in this form to destroy the demon Raktabeej. Raktabeej created havoc for all the humans and devtas. It was almost impossible to destroy him because each and every drop of his blood which fell to the floor manifested in one more embodiment of Raktabeej. Only the furious form of Maa Durga could destroy him.

On a spiritual level, this form of Maa empowers us to destroy all the negative within us and around us. Maa Kaalratri teaches us that tolerating any form of physical, emotional or mental is the greatest injustice to your own self. By coming into awareness of this fearless form of MaaDurga, you destroy your weak and emotional self, rooted in the attachments that breed fear and insecurity and disrespect. And this brings about a new happy beginning.

Maa in this form also empowers you to stand up against all evil happening around you.
