Sumbha having directed those giants. Chanda and Munda attended by four sorts of armies and arms, they marched the foremost to the fight. The goddess being on the lion over the peak of the stupendous golden mountain, saw them with a smile. The demons beheld her and highly exerted themselves to accomplish their designs, and the holder of the sword, and bow drew near to her. Amvika then became terribly angry at her enemies; rage changed her face into a hideous black. Her contracting brows overshadowed her forehead, the terrific faced Kali slung her Paca. She wore a wonderful Khutwanga, adorned by a string of human skulls, she wore a tiger’s hide, her flesh became dried. Her mouth expanded, she had a lolling tongue, a horrible red-tinged eye, her front filled the regions. She furiously fell upon the Asuras, and destroyed the foes of deities and devoured their forces. She took Parswagrahi with one hand and Kusagrahi, Yadha-Ghumta, with the other, and put them into her mouth. Likewise the troopers’ chariots with their drivers, she threw them in her mouth, and chewed them with her teeth horribly. She laid hold of some by their hair, others by the throat, or by the hand, she crushed some with her foot, broke the bosoms of others. She wrathfully swallowed up her enemies she discharged powerful arrows, and the arms of the Asuras she furiously chewed with her teeth. The magnanimous goddess devoured or crushed all the forces of the valiant Asuras. She killed some with the sword, and struck some with the Khutwanga weapon; the giants died with the pressure of her teeth. In a moment all the forces of the Asuras fell; Chanda beheld it and ran to the frightful Kali. The mighty Asura, with a shower of numerous and tremendous arrows, and thousands of Chakras speedily enveloped the dreadful eyed goddess. Abundance of the discuses she swallowed, her face became as the orbit of the sun enveloped by the clouds.

Then Kali, angrily shouted: her voice was horrible, her mouth became distended and frightful, and she gnashed her tremendous teeth. The goddess made her lion to rise, ran at Chanda, and laying hold on him by his hair, she cut off his head with her sword. After this Munda seeing the fall of Chanda, marched against her, she made him to fall on the earth and instantaneously killed him with her sword. The surviving forces perceived the fall of Chanda, and the valiant Munda, and through fear retreated in all directions. Kali took the heads of Chanda, likewise of Munda, and shoutingly exclaimed to Chandika. I have killed the great beasts Chanda and Munda, you will slay Sumbha and Nisumbha, in the sacrifice of battle. The Rishi said, she gently replied to the prosperous Kali, “as thou hast brought the heads of the great demons Chanda and Munda, you shall be renowned in the world by the name of Chamunda.” Thus far is related in the seventh Chapter, comprising the death of Chanda and Munda.
