In this form Goddess Kalratri killed Raktabeej. Raktabeej was a demon who could multiply from every drop of his blood which fell on the ground. The Goddess Kaalratri killed him by Licking the blood before it could reach the ground and hence conquered him. She endows her devotees with calm and courage. The complexion of Maa Kalaratri is Like dark night with bountiful hair and has four hands. The left two hands holds a cleaver and a torch, and the right two are in the mudras of “giving” and “protecting”. She has a necklace which is so shining like thunder and made of skulls.
