KĀLAKŪṬA - कालकूट

See also कालकूट
The virulent poison that came up during the churning of the Ocean of Milk. Śiva swallowed and retained it in his throat, and so he came to be called Nīlakaṇṭha. “And Kālakūṭa arose like fire burning all the worlds. The smell of it sent the three worlds into a swoon. At the request of Brahmā Śiva swallowed the poison to save the world from absolute destruction. And, he (Śiva) retained it in his throat”. [Ādi Parva, Chapter 18].
