Dakshina Kannada.jpg

Once there was a village called Kota. One of the Gods, Swarnadurga, gave birth to a baby. The baby’s name was Mahakali. When she was 34 years old, she became a God. She married a prince named Brahmaputra. Brahmaputra was a very god finder. He would find everybody through their thoughts.

Mahakali decided to be a powerful God. At night, secretly, she was a powerful huntress and during the day she was a simple God. She had magical materials like a necklace, sarees and her magical flower.

One day she went of her house at night to fight with Aranya. Aranya troubled Mahakali. Mahakali killed Aranya with the help of Kalkutka, Yakshi, Raktheshwari and Higuli. But Aranya’s wife gave birth to a baby. The baby was also named Aranya because he also wanted to kill Mahakali.

Aranya went to a place called Saligrama next to Kota village. Mahakali came there with Raktheshwari and Yakshi. Mahakali decided to give Aranya one more chance. They took Aranya to the forest and left. He made friends with the animals. After three months, he came to a place called Sastana. Mahakali also came there with Kalkutka and Higuli. The animals also came with Aranya. An animal was going to stamp on Mahakali but Higuli and Kalkutka ate the animals. Seeing this, Aranya ran away. Aranya thought, “I should kill Mahakali.”

After one and a half months Aranya came to Basrur. Mahakali came with Panjurli to fight. Panjurli had a knife. He came behind Aranya and killed him.

Brahmaputra had found out Mahakali’s secret and wanted to trouble her. Mahakali got angry and called Rakteshwari, Yakshi, Kalkutka, Higuli and Panjurli to her house. Mahakali became a Naagabhootha and killed Brahmaputra. They made a village in Sowkur. They also had a friend called Durgaparameshwari. They made Durgaparameshwari as the main God.
