Legends

Once upon a time there were two powerful demons named Shumbh and Nishumbh. They used to create havoc and chaos for humans as well as gods. With time, the demons gained so much power that they even dethroned Indra, king of gods, from heaven. The gods had no choice but to retreat and take refuge on the Himalayas, where ShivaShivaShiva

lived. Upon reaching there, they began praying to Parvati and requested her to help them. Upon this, Parvati created a new form of herself – Kali. Later, a fierce war between Kali and the demons ensued.

Eventually, the goddess reigned supreme and beheaded the demons. However, even after the demons were killed and the battle was over, Kali got carried away and was lost in bloodthirstiness and began dancing. She began to destroy and demolish everything and everyone in her way. In order to stop the rampage, Shiva thought of a plan. He came in front of her and placed himself under Kali’s feet. Kali, lost in the emotion, inadvertently stepped on him. As soon as this happened she realized what she had done, she was shocked and suddenly came to her senses. In her reaction she stuck out her tongue, hence, she is always depicted as sticking out her long tongue. Thus, Kali’s rampage came to a halt and this day is believed to signify Kali Puja.


Rituals

The rituals of Kali Puja range from simple to extreme. People generally decorate their houses with bright lights and lamps made of clay are lighted all around the places. Rangolis are also made at the entrance of the homes in order to welcome the goddess. In some parts of India, especially West Bengal, one of the most important customs that are followed is of animal sacrifices. The animals for the rituals are generally buffaloes, goat or chickens. Yogis and hermits are supposed to be the most ardent devotees of Kali and they offer special prayers to Kali by visiting crematoriums and worshipping her throughout the night.

Significance

Kali is considered to be very aggressive; nevertheless, she destroys the evil within human beings and protects her worshippers from harmful entities and ensures world peace. Kali Puja is performed to kill ego and all the negativities, and bring about progress and prosperity in one’s life. Yogis and hermits perform Kali Puja on this day at midnight as it is believed that doors to all the powers and knowledge are opened at that moment of time.
