MOOKAMBIKAI KOIL KOLLUR

Again devas voiced their impending calamity to the All-powerful MOTHER. This time she took recourse to a strategy to nip the disaster in the bud itself. Accordingly, she made Kamhasura speechless, when Brahma appeared before him to grant boons. So, he was named Mookasura - mooka standing for dubmness, and MOTHER Parasakti, Mookambika. When Mookasura understood the foul play, he unleashed violence to such undreamt of proportions that holocaust reigned supreme, making existence unbearably miserable. Devas again met Trimurthis with faces gloomy and implored assistance. To meet the terrific catastrope, the Trio then created, a Goddess each, investing in her their supreme powers - Brahma making Brahmi, Vishnu, Vaishnavavi and Siva, Sambhavi. 

To fortify them, Yama added Varahi, Subrahmanya, Kumari, Indra and Indrani. Seeing the six Goddesses entering the war field, Maheswar's daughter Bhadra and Sevakas like Veerabhadra, Gananatha joined them for quick destruction. 

Yet, the battle went on and on for days; for, the boons Mookasura obtained surpassed the combined strength of all. Apprehending the danger, the six Goddesses unanimously blended into one single entity. Mookasura could not combat against that powerful Goddess; and so died in the field. Highly elated at the success, and immensely feasted their eyes with her forms, gods prayed Parasakti to retire in Kollur itself as Mookambika for ever.
