The name derives from Kaal (time) and Ratri (night).
She is even recognised by other name - Shubhankaari. She has a dark complexion, tousled hair and a valor posture. She has bountiful hair and four hands. One of the two left hands holds a cleaver and the other holds a torch, and the right two hands are in �giving� and �protecting� mudras. She has three eyes emanate rays like lightning and Her necklace is shining like thunder. When She inhales and exhales air, flames appear through Her nostrils.
Kaalratri is worshipped on the seventh day of the Navratri to awaken powers and attain siddhis. Kaalratri, who killed the bloodborn demon Raktabeej, endows her devotees with calm and courage.
Her devotees must wear blue coloured clothes so that she protects them from all evils.
Devi teaches us that sorrow, pain, decay, destruction and death are unavoidable and cannot be ignored. These are the truths of life and denying them is futile. We must accept their presence and significance to realise the fullness of our being and our potential.
