The terrible and terrifying energy of the Goddess Durga is manifested on the seventh day in the form and figure of Kalratri. A dark goddess, she is literally dark, her skin is dark blue and her jet black hair flows in wild abandon as she sits astride a donkey. The martial goddess is clad in a skirt of tiger skin and a dupatta as red as the blood that drips from the scythe like weapon. Even her palms are a deep, blood red. Her adornments - necklace, bracelet and anklets - are a brilliant, glittering white that are reminiscent of the crackling energy of a bolt of lightening. Her eyes are red rimmed and her terrifying visage consists of three eyes, with the third eye open. Armed with a khadag apart from brandishing the scythe like weapon, Kalratri is also a four armed goddess. With the two hands on the right side being empty of weapons.
Like Katayayani, her bare hands are also composed in mudras of Var (blessing) and Abhay (fearlessness). Despite her terrifying appearance she is also known as Shubhankri because she is the unparalleled granter of boons and harbinger of success. She is also the most powerful force of protection, a goddess who protects all her devotees from all kinds of harm - physical and metaphysical. The most potent form of barely contained energy she is the literal representation of the Goddess Durga's unleashed energy. As a potent force and facet of the female energy, Kalratri claims as her own the Sahashtrara Chakra. Symbolised by a lotus with a thousand petals, this chakra is also known as the crown chakra. The chakra of consciousness, this chakra controls the flow of energy in terms of being the connector between the human consciousness and the higher levels of energy and consciousness.
