(Hindu Deity)AMBIKA

Also known as KARTTIKEYANI, KAUMARI, KUMARI

Ambika is a personification of Parvati. She is also stunningly beautiful and has no problems whipping demons into a lustful frenzy.

Being mostly stupid, demons would fall for the old "i'll bed you if you can best me in battle" chestnut and turn up in their droves to try their luck. That's when Ambika would paralise them with her supersonic hum then transform into Kali and gobble them up.

Back in Vedic times Ambika may have been known as Kumari, one of the Matrikas. This particular demon kicking mama was the female shadow of Kartikkeya, who used to be Kumara.

Ambika's vahana, or vehicle, is a lion.
