There are many visualizations or dhyanas of Kali, which describe different aspects for the devotee to contemplate. According to one visualization the four-armed Devi Kali is smiling and full of blood, with three red eyes, and she stands on Lord Shiva. Kali is an important goddess for Shakta tantra. Many tantrikas are also emotional Shakta devotees, and their practice mixes bhakti and tantra.The great bhakti goddesses of Bengal are Durga and Kali.There are other important goddesses, such as Saraswati, goddess of music and literature, and Lakshmi, goddess of wealth and fortune. Each of these has devotees, but their prominence and their celebrations are small in comparison. Durga and Kali are perhaps unusual as bhakti goddesses, for they have roots in folk Shaktism. As told in Markendeya Puran She is the killer of the Mahishasura, the force of good over evil, the goddess who is celebrated and worshiped in the largest annual festival of West Bengal, Durga Puja. Ethically, she represents virtue and honor. She is an agricultural goddess who lives in trees and is ritually represented in the nine plants combined at Durga Puja (Navapatrika). She is a loving mother to her children who call upon her.
As an agricultural goddess, she is called Vana Durga or Shakambhari. Vana Durga is goddess of the forests, and she is often worshiped there in outdoor shrines that have no roof over them.In Mymensingh in Bangladesh, she is called Rupasi or Rupeshvari, and worshiped at the foot of a sheora tree for the welfare of women and children. The agricultural form of Durga is also known as Shakambhari, she helps the starving with vegetables from her own body. Worship of Durga as Shakambhari is rare today, but it does survive. In the village of Majigram in Burdwan, Shakambhari has both daily and yearly worship.e Markandeya Purana, in the section known as the “Chandi Saptasati” or “Devi Mahatmya.” It is mentioned that she is both a created being, given power by the gods to defeat a demon who had a special boon (that he could never be killed by a man), and a preexisting force, the supreme, primordial Prakriti, the active opposite of the Purusha. She also states that people will be blessed when they hear this story (Chandi), especially in the autumn festival. Listening to Chandi it will protect people from evil spirits and planets and from nightmares; it will conquer fear, and give protection from all dangers.
Durga is worshiped in several forms, and one that is popular in rural WestBengal is that of Jagaddhatri. The name Jagaddhatri came from a title given to Durga in the Devi Mahatmya, after she killed the Asura Mahishasura. The gods sang her praises and worshiped her with divine flowers, and she was called the sustainer (dhatri) of the universe (jagat), thus Jagaddhatri. Pioneerly she was furat worshipped by Raja Krishna Chnadra of Nadia. She is beautiful four armed goddess and she is worshipped in the same style as Durga puja.
