Story of Demon Baskala And Goddess Durga

Demon Baskala was a king of Asuras and was born in the lineage of Hiranyakashipu. His story begins when he was appointed as one of the ministers of Demon Mahishasura. The demon attained moksha as he was annihilated by Mother Goddess Shakti.

Baskala helped Mahishasura in his battle against Indra. Thus he became one of the trusted lieutenants of the demon king.

In the combat against Mother Goddess Durga, Baskala was one of the great warriors on the side of Mahishasura. He appeared in the battlefield during the fag end of the war.

He engaged Mother Goddess valiantly and he attempted to give a hard blow on the chest of Goddess Durga but She evaded the blow with her club.

Mother Goddess then fought with him using Her trident and She finally thrust it on his chest. Baskala fell dead and he attained moksha.
