According to the Hindu Mythology, when the demon Raktabeej terror was on peak and no God or Goddess were able to stop him it was Goddess Kali who could demolish this demon. Raktabeej could not be killed as with every drop of his blood another embodiment of Raktabeej was formed. This way millions of Raktabeej were formed. Devi Bhagwati manifested herself as Kalaratri and kept a vessel to imbibe the blood of Raktabeej. Her extremely violent and fierce form of destroying Raktabeej terrified all organisms of Universe. However, she is generous for her devotees.
