Date: 24th March, 2018 (Saturday)
Color to be worn: Royal Blue
Now as the Goddess form ascends the 6th Chakra which is Ajna chakra, she takes her 7th form which is Maa Kaal Ratri. Kaalratri is the one of the fiercest forms of Durga and her appearance itself evokes fear. This form of Goddess is believed to be the destroyer of all demon entities, ghosts, spirits and negative energies, who flee upon knowing of her arrival.
Kaal Ratri means the One who is "the Death of Kaal". Here Kaal is dedicated as time & death and ratri means night. Kaal Ratri is the one who destroys ignorance and removes darkness of birth, so that the devotee merges into the supreme consciousness with destruction of the darkness of ignorance.
In this form, she killed the demons named Shumbha and Nishumbha.
The complexion of Maa Kalaratri is like dark night with bountiful hair and heavenly shaped form, and, she has four hands. The left two hands holds a cleaver and a torch, and the right two are in the mudras of "giving" and "protecting". She wears a necklace that shines like the moon. Kalaratri has three eyes which emanate rays like lightning. Flames appear through her nostrils when she inhales or exhales. Her mount is the donkey.
The appearance of Maa Kalaratri can be seen as being very dangerous for evil-doers. But she always bears good fruits for Her devotees who are not afraid of Her. Her devotees should avoid fear when facing Her, for She removes the darkness of worry from the life of Her bhaktas or worshipers. Her worship on 8th day of Navratri has very much a high importance to Yogis and Sadhakas. Yogis and Sadhakas penance on Sahasrara Chakra on this day; for the worshipers the door opens for every siddhi, power and practice in the universe.
