It happened once, that the world was threatened by the Asuras.The asuras rallied together to overthrow the gods and gain control of the earth. The leader of this uprising was Raktabija.The boon granted by Brahma, allowed Raktabija’s power to increase by a thousand every time a drop of his blood was spilled.The demon soldiers, led by Raktabija, came forth and the gods trembled with outrage. In desperation the gods turned to their Shakti (female energy) counterparts. The great and beautiful goddess Durga stepped forward into battle on a tiger.The battle between Raktabija and the Devi ensued.Raktabija’s blood spilled everywhere. Demons advanced on the goddess by the thousands.Upon seeing this, Durga became enraged. She knitted her brows in absolute fury. From this concentration came KALI.The whole universe shook with the thundering roar of this powerfully terrible goddess.She turned her furious gaze upon the demon armies, half fell lifeless from the deadly grip of Her stare.With his armies fully destroyed, again the great Devi faced off with Raktabija. Kali pierced the demon in the side and quickly caught the flowing blood with her tongue and drank it greedily.Finally, drunken with the blood of victory, Kali, threw away the Raktabija corpse. The world was saved almost.By now She was drunk from Raktabija’s blood and the effect it had on Her caused her to dance wildly.It seemed as though nothing would stop Her, and again the world was on the verge of collapse.The gods begged Shiva to intervene and calm Kali before it was too late.Shiva called out kali,his words went unheard. Finally in an act of complete desperation, Shiva threw Himself down beneath Her feet.Kali continued her dancing, pounding the life out of her husband. In few moments She realized that it was Her husband, Shiva, who lay flattened at Her feet. This quicklybrought Her out of Her trance, and She was once more the calm Devi.
Once more the world was saved from total destruction. Shiva’s quick and selfless thinking had balanced the Devi’s dance of destruction.
