Significance Of Maha Saptami In Navratri

Story Of Goddess Kalratri:

Once a demon named Raktabeej obtained a boon from Brahma. According to the boon, as soon as his blood would touch the ground, he would multiply. The name Raktaneej translates to - whose blood works as a seed. With the boon, Raktabeej started creating havoc for humans as well as the Gods. It became impossible to kill him since he would multiply by hundreds and thousands as the drops of his blood fell on the ground.

Then the Goddess took the form of Kalratri and killed Raktabeej. She would drink the blood drops before they could fall on the ground and hence Raktabeej was thus prevented from multiplying and the demon was eliminated from the earth.

Goddess Kalratri is the one who destroys ignorance and removes darkness. This form primarily reveals the dark side of Mother Nature who takes a fierce form to remove all negative energies from the earth. Though this form of the Goddess is fearsome. But those who worship her with full devotion and without fear are granted all their wishes. The Goddess removes all obstacles from their lives and blesses them with all the happiness and joy.

The rituals followed in the worship of Goddess Kalratri is similar to that of the other forms of Durga. However certain special sacrifices are performed at midnight to please the Goddess including various kinds of Tantrik rituals.
