The word Kaal means time and also death. Maa Kaalratri's vehicle is a donkey and has four arms, of which the top right hand is in Varada mudra and the bottom hand is in Abhaya mudra, while the upper hand on the left side has an iron fork and the lower hand is a Khadga. Even though her appearance is fearsome, she has a divine light and is an eternal source of wisdom. Hence one of the names of Goddess mother is Shumbhakari.
