Mahakali is an important part of Adbhut Ramayan. May be this story will be covered in DKDM or may be not. But with the news of Mahakali coming again I recollected this story.

Sarga 17: In the court of Ayodhya, in the presence of saints and seers, Sita noted that the slaying of Ravana was not that big a deal. When she was very young living in her father's home in Janakpura, a Brahmana had passed through and told her of Ravana's older brother, also named Ravana. One thousand headed, living on an island named Pushkar, he was much more powerful than his younger brother.

Sarga 18: Rama collected his army of monkeys, men, and rakshasas, and departed to conquer the elder Ravana. Ravana was surprised to see Rama's army deployed against him, but quickly assembled his hordes of rakshasas. This sarga describes the rakshasa army commanders and their weapons in detail.

Sarga 19: A continuation, enumerating the participants in the forthcoming battle.

Sarga 20: The battle begins, a closely fought encounter in which the monkeys gain the upper hand.

Sarga 21: Ravana, seeing Rama's army on the verge of victory, decided to participate. Employing the vayavastra weapon, he dispersed Rama's army to the places from which they came: the men to Ayodhya, monkeys to Kishkindha, and the rakshasas to Lanka. Rama was angry, and prepared to engage Ravana.

Sarga 22: In their first one-on-one encounter, a fierce and unrelenting battle, Rama employed the Brahmastra, given to him by Agastya. Ravana grabbed it with his hand and snapped it in two as though it were straw, dismaying Rama. Ravana then shot his own arrow at Rama, rendering him unconscious and bringing widespread consternation.

Sarga 23: Seeing Rama unconscious and helpless on the field, Sita laughed, and giving up her human appearance she took on the exceedingly horrific form of Mahakali. In less than a second, she severed Ravana's 1000 heads and began destroying rakshasas everywhere. Innumerable mothers of every type came to the battlefield to sport with Mahakali, playing games with the heads of rakshasas. The earth shook and almost sank into the netherworlds, but was rescued by Shiva disguised as a corpse.

Sarga 24: Realizing that the earth might be destroyed if Sita as Mahakali did not calm down, the Devatas came to appease her. They exclaimed that only through shakti does the supreme lord become accessible. She pointed to the unconscious Rama, making clear that because he was unconscious she could not consider the world's welfare. Brahma restored Rama's consciousness, but as he regained awareness he was frightened of Sita's horrific form. Brahma explained to Rama that she had taken this form to highlight the fact that everything he doesóthe creation and destruction of the universe, and all other activitiesócan only be accomplished in association with her, with shakti. Rama was satisfied, and his fears allayed.

Sarga 25: Brahma assured Rama that the horrific form before him was indeed Sita, and so he asked her who she really was. She explained that she was the entity within everyone, known as Shiva (with a long a, the shakti of Lord Shiva), who can take one across the ocean of sansara. She then gave Rama "celestial sight" so that he could perceive her divine state. Seeing her true nature, he was thrilled, and praised her by reciting her 1008 names.

Sarga 26: Rama continued to praise her, and at his request she reverted to her form as Sita. They then prepared to return to Ayodhya.

Sarga 27: Rama and Sita mounted the car known as pushkpaka, and soon arrived in Ayodhya. Once there, he narrated the story of the elder Ravana's defeat to everyone. They then bade farewell to Sugriva and his army of monkeys as well as to Vibhishana and his army of rakshasas. The sarga concludes with a brief re-counting of Rama's story and an ennumeration of the merits and benefits of hearing the story of the Adbhuta Ramayana (also known as the Adbhutottara Kandam

i have never heard of his story-thanks for sharing

its an intresting story-however i do not see this being shown in DKDM-this story requires a deeper understanding of who Shiva and Shakti really are

maybe this story may be shown later once Ram and Sita are shown

But Mahakali Sahastra nam prayed to her by Ram is an important part of Dash Mahavidya book.
