Vasant Navratri Day 7: Appease Maa Kaalratri

The seventh day of Vasant or Chaitra Navratri is associated with worshipping Maa Kaalratri.

Who is Maa Kaalratri?

Once two demon brothers named Shumbha & Nishumbha invaded the heaven and the king of heaven- Indra along with other Gods, fleed to save their lives and went to seek refuge in Kailasha (Abode of Lord Shiva & Goddess Parvati). There the Gods prayed to Goddess Parvati for protection.

Goddess Parvati took the extremely ferocious form of Kaalratri to kill Shumbha & Nishumbha and gave the Gods their kingdom back. Kaalratri is made up of two words- 'Kaal and Ratri'. Kaal in this context means Death and Ratri means Night/Darkness/Ignorance. Hence, Maa Kaalratri brings an end to the darkness or ignorance in the lives of Her devotees.
