Raktabija is a demon in Hindu mythology who is associated with blood. According to Hindu mythology, Raktabija was a demon who possessed a special power – whenever a drop of his blood fell on the ground, a new demon would be created from it. This made it very difficult to defeat Raktabija, as any attempt to attack him would only result in more demons being created.
In the battle between the gods and demons, the goddess Durga was called upon to defeat Raktabija. Durga fought a fierce battle with Raktabija, but every time she wounded him, his blood would fall on the ground and give rise to new demons. To counter this, Durga had to drink Raktabija’s blood as it spilled from his wounds, preventing new demons from being created.
Ultimately, Durga was able to slay Raktabija, bringing an end to his reign of terror. Raktabija is considered a symbol of the destructive and chaotic forces in the universe, which must be overcome in order for order and balance to be restored.
