According to scriptures, the goddess, Kushmanda is supposed to have created the universe out of nothing. When Lord Vishnu started creating the universe, she smiled and dispelled the darkness. She became the source of all the planets and stars.

Since the goddess has eight hands she is also known as Ashtabhuja Devi. The goddess is usually shown holding a trident, discus, sword, hook, mace, bow, arrow, two jars of honey and blood and she looks fiercely good. One of her hand makes the abhayamudra and with this she blesses devotees.
