The Slayer Of raktabija As
After Beheading the demons chanda and munda,
Maa Maha Kaali Became Known As Maa Chamunda. Maa Chamunda Symbolizes Maa Maha Kaali’s Violent, Horrific Aspect Necessary To Defeat evil. As Maa Chamunda, Maa Maha Kaali Is Depicted As Emaciated, With Protruding Bones And Fierce, Round And Bulging Eyes, Bared Teeth, And Four Hands Holding Cleaver, Spear, Skullcup, And human head.
Maa Chamunda Slays the demon raktabija By Drinking all his blood. raktabija was the demon whose blood had replicative ability, symbolizing the almost unstoppable power of desire that stems from the ego’s aching, existential deficiency. Such desire never remains satisfied for long, and the more it is gratified, the more it proliferates. The Imagery Of Maa Chamunda Lapping Up the copious flow of raktabija’s blood, Symbolizes that desire is best dealt with before it gets out of hand. Here Maa Chamunda’s Destructive Power Manifests As A Protective Beneficial Force, Which By Ceasing chitta-vrittis, Enables the awakening of spiritual consciousness. As Maa Chamunda, Maa Maha Kaali Grants passage from the relative To The Absolute.
Maa Maha Kaali Alone Is The Liberating Knowledge Who Stills the chitta-vrittis. Devotees should worship Maa Maha Kaali with unwavering sincerity for spiritual liberation.
