Kalratri Devi – माँ कालरात्रि – Mantra, Story, Stotra, Kavach, Aarti

Goddess Kalratri, also known as Maa Kaali, is the seventh avatar of Goddess Durga. Kaalratri is one of the fiercest forms of Durga and her appearance itself evokes fear. she has four hands. The left two hands hold a cleaver and a deadly saber, and the right two are in the mudras of ‘giving’ and ‘protecting’. She exhales flames through her nostrils while breathing. Sometimes, she is also seen standing on a demon’s corpse and holding its freshly cut head while in her other hand she is holding a trident. This Goddess wears a necklace of skulls and is usually depicted mounting a donkey.

This form of Goddess is believed to be the destroyer of all demon entities, ghosts, spirits, and negative energies, who would just flee upon hearing of her arrival. Spiritually, Maa Kaal Ratri is the one who destroys ignorance and removes the darkness of birth, so that the devotee merges into the supreme consciousness with the destruction of the darkness of ignorance.

Maa Kalratri Story – मां कालरात्रि की कहानी

According to the most common legend, two demons Shumbha and Nishumbha invaded and defeated Devlok (the realm of demigods). These demigods approached and prayed Goddess Parvati for help. Goddess Parvati agreed to help them and readily transformed herself into Goddess Chamunda, to battle with demons on behalf of all Devtas (demigods). Goddess Chamunda, further transformed herself into Goddess Kalratri and killed both the demons. Maa Kalratri further fought with another demon called Raktveej and kept drinking his blood till he was completely dead, which caused her tongue to appear blood-red.

Maa Kalratri Aarti In Hindi – कालरात्रि माता की आरती

कालरात्रि जय जय महाकाली। काल के मुंह से बचाने वाली॥

दुष्ट संघारक नाम तुम्हारा। महाचंडी तेरा अवतारा॥

पृथ्वी और आकाश पे सारा। महाकाली है तेरा पसारा॥

खड्ग खप्पर रखने वाली। दुष्टों का लहू चखने वाली॥

कलकत्ता स्थान तुम्हारा। सब जगह देखूं तेरा नजारा॥

सभी देवता सब नर-नारी। गावें स्तुति सभी तुम्हारी॥

रक्तदन्ता और अन्नपूर्णा। कृपा करे तो कोई भी दुःख ना॥

ना कोई चिंता रहे ना बीमारी। ना कोई गम ना संकट भारी॥

उस पर कभी कष्ट ना आवे। महाकाली माँ जिसे बचावे॥

तू भी भक्त प्रेम से कह। कालरात्रि माँ तेरी जय॥
