Daruka and her boon:

Down in the realm of the netherworlds there was a demoness by the name of Daruka was doing deep penance to Goddess Adi Shakti (who was the beginning less primeval and had causeless power). She was chanting the following mantra Om Adi Shakti aye Namo Namah.
Goddess Adi Shakti suddenly appeared. Being satisfied with Daruka’s penance Goddess Adi Shakti offered her a boon. Daruka asked Goddess Adi Shakti for protection of her husband and the demon clan, as well as being able to have a place to get food. Goddess Adi Shakti granted her the boon and created a forest for her and promised Daruka the she would be protected as well her husband and the demon clan and with that Goddess Adi Shakti disappeared.
After hearing what had happened Daruk Daruka’s husband thought to himself that with Goddess Adi Shakti’s protection he decided that he wanted to go to earth and feast on the human beings, animals, and plants. So with that Daruka transported her forest to earth. However it wasn’t long before a sage cursed Daruk, Daruka, and the demon clan that if they tried to attack any god, or sage they would die.
Also Lord Shiva cursed them that he unrighteous demon will die if they did any unrighteous deeds. This caused an argument between Goddess Adi Shakti and her husband Lord Shiva regarding this.
In the end Daruk and Daruka promised both Goddess Adi Shakti and Lord Shiva that they would change their demonic ways. From then on Daruk and Daruka lived a peaceful life in harmony with the human beings, animals, and plants.
