When the Gods forget how to slay demons and call on the universe to aid them in their task, who do you think the universe sends to help them destroy evil and wrong doing unmask? The Goddess Durga, riding towards the darkness on a tiger, countless weapons in her arms, her daughter is the one the universe trusts to protect her against all odds. Because on one hand she wipes out evil, on the other she nurtures good better than any God. In the end, even the universe knows that it is her daughter she should trust to protect her from ignorance, from darkness, from every downfall. And what does the birth of Durga, fully formed, ready to fight demons say about you? You were born to take on monsters. You were born to eat the darkness that tries to absorb you.

Kālarātri-the dark night, is black and naked except for her ear-ornaments on her large ears. Her lips hang open, Her body is covered in oil, and she sits on a donkey. She has a single braid (of mourning) in Her hair. We pray for her to destroy the darkeness in our minds. She holds an iron scimitar in Her upper left hand and a lightening bolt in her lower left hand. Her other hands are granting blessings and protection.
