Navratri 2022 Day 7: Today is the Saptami date and Sunday of Ashwin Shukla Paksha. Saptami date will remain till 6.45 pm today. But the festival of Navratri is celebrated on Udaya Tithi, so today is the seventh day of Navratri. The Saptami that falls during Navratri is known as Mahasaptami. Maa Kaalratri, the seventh form of Maa Durga, will be worshipped on this day.
When Mata Parvati gave up her golden color to kill Shumbha-Nishumbha, she was known as Kaalratri. Maa Kaalratri's vehicle is a donkey and she has four arms, of which the upper right hand is in varada mudra and the lower hand is in abhaya mudra, while the upper left hand holds an iron fork and the lower hand holds a kharga. This form of the mother may seem terrible to see, but it is very auspicious. Only by remembering her, devotees can overcome every kind of fear.
