  ALMORA - KAUSIKI DEVI MANDIR

Chanda Mundas, the renowned generals of the danavas were dispatched. Infuriated at their insolent talk, Kousiki knit her brows and from her forehead came out Kali donned in lion's skin and holding dreadful weapons in her hands. Alas! the generals were defeated and their corpses were placed at the feet of the Mother Kausiki.

Then appeared on the scene Raktabija, a dreadful rakshasa whose drop of blood, if shed by any in confrontation, obnoxious asuras would be born to aid and abet him. When Kausiki's efforts to paucity him failed, she created a devi called Chamunda bidding her to cover the entire field with her out-spread tongue. She did and made the demon paralysed and killed him instantly. Then appeared on the scene the two brothers who were destroyed one after another with Varahi and Maheswari, the two powerful amsas of Kausiki. Thus Kausiki retored peace in Devaloka. Would daivasakti ever court a failure?
