Duratyayā (दुरत्यया, “Inscrutable One”):—One of the names of Mahākālī (tamas-form of Mahādevī). Mahākālī is one of the three primary forms of Devī. Not to be confused with Kālī, she is a more powerful cosmic aspect (vyaṣṭi) of Devi and represents the guṇa (universal energy) named tamas. For reference, see the Devī Māhātmya, a Sanskrit work from the 5th century, incorporated into the Mārkaṇḍeya-Purāṇa.

1) Duratyaya (दुरत्यय) refers to one who is “incorrigible”, and is used by Dakṣa to describe Śiva, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.27. Accordingly as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“[...] on hearing [Dadhīci’s] words, the foolish and evil-minded Dakṣa became furious in a trice and said mockingly:—‘[...] O Brahmin, this Śiva is not a man of nobility. He has neither father nor mother. He is the lord of goblins, ghosts and spirits and is incorrigible (viz., duratyaya)’”.

2) Duratyaya (दुरत्यय) refers to “that (power) which is incapable of being transgressed”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.4.2 (“The birth of Śiva’s son”).—Accordingly, as the Gods said to Śiva: “O lord of gods, O great lord, consort of Pārvatī, what has happened now? Your magical power is incapable of being transgressed (duratyaya). We have become pregnant and also scorched by your semen. O Śiva, take pity on us. Remove our miserable plight”.
