MOTHER KALI OF KODUNGALLUR

 

In due course Daruka and Karaka were born to Darumati and Danamati respectively. Darumati being over ambitious, advised her son to propitiate Lord Brahma with great ardour for boons. He did. Brahma granted him invisibility as desired against either by man, beast, Surasura, or weapon of any type, at any point of time. He was infinitely gratified, but Lord Brahma reminded that he was not free from woman. Over jubilant Daruka laughed away saying that no special power was needed to subdue the weak vessels. 

Soon Daruka entered the war theatre and retrieved what was lost by his ancestors. For gods, it opened an era of agony and humiliation when the afflicted poured out their hearts, the six powerful gods - Brahma, Vishnu, Maheswar, Subrahmanya, Yama and Indra created six goddesses and imparted their powers to them before sending to the war field. Alas they were no match to their formidable Daruka, Thereupon, Lord maheswar opened his third eye and created Bhadrakali to meet the situation. Nothing stands against that force. Daruka bit the dust. Soon after danava samhara, Bhadrakali still at the height of fury approached Lord Siva in her frenzied mood. 

To appease and pacify her, Lord Siva created two kids to suckle and cajole her by their charms and pranks. Target missed. Then the Lord began his inimitable Bhujangatrasa nitrya, and that spectacle not only cooled her, but made her the Lord's dancing partner. Kroda was dissolved and Karuna triumphed.
