Baglamukhi or Bagalā (Sanskrit: बगलामुखी) is the female form of a personification of the mahavidyas (great wisdom/science), a group of ten Tantrik deities in Hinduism. Devi Bagalamukhi smashes the devotee’s misconceptions and delusions (or the devotee’s enemies) with her cudgel. The word “Bagala” is derived from the word “Valga” (meaning – bridle or to rein in) which, became “Vagla” and then “Bagla”. The Devi has 108 different names (some others also call her by 1108 names). Bagalamukhi is commonly known as Pitambari in North India, the goddess associated with yellow color or golden color. She sits on golden throne having pillars decorated with various jewels and has three eyes, that symbolises that she can impart ultimate knowledge to the devotee.

Bagalamukhi is one of the ten forms of the Devi, symbolising potent female, primeval force.

The main temples dedicated to Bagalamukhi or Bagala Devi are located at Bhagalamukhi dhevi Temple Shivampet, Telangana,Bagalamukhi Temple, Nalkheda Madhya Pradesh, Bugiladhar, Ghuttu Uttarakhand, Kamakhya Temple, Guwahati, Assam, Baglamukhi temple of Lalitpur, Nepal and of Banghandi, Kangra, Himachal Bagalamukhi shaktipeetham Shivampeta, Narsapur, Telangana state.

Iconography

 Another interpretation translates her name as “Kalyani”. In Kubjika Tantra there is a reference to yet another interpretation of the meaning of the name ‘Bagala’. In the initial chapter of the text, there is a verse – ‘Bakare Baruni Devi Gakare Siddhida Smrita. Lakare Prithivi Chaiba Chaitanya Prakrirtita’ (‘Ba’, the first letter of the name – ‘Bagala’, means ‘Baruni’ or ‘She Who is filled with the intoxicating mood to vanquish the demon’. ‘Ga’, the second letter, means ‘She Who grants all kinds of divine powers or siddhis and successes to human beings’. ‘La’, the third letter, means ‘She Who is the foundation of all kinds of sustaining powers in the world like the earth and is Consciousness Herself’.

Two descriptions of the goddess are found in various texts: the Dwi-Bhuja (two-handed), and the Chaturbhuja (four-handed). The Dwi-Bhuja depiction is the more common and is described as the “Soumya” or milder form. She holds a club in her right hand with which she beats a demon, while pulling his tongue out with her left hand. This image is sometimes interpreted as an exhibition of stambhana, the power to stun or paralyse an enemy into silence. This is one of the boons for which Bagalamukhi’s devotees worship her. Other Mahavidya goddesses are also said to represent similar powers useful for defeating enemies, to be invoked by their worshippers through various rituals.

Bagalamukhi is also called PitambaradeviShatrubuddhivinashini and Brahmastra Roopini and she turns each thing into its opposite.

The Tantrasara describes her iconography: Bagalamukhi sits in a golden throne in the midst of an ocean in an altar. Her complexion is yellow (golden). Clad in yellow clothes, she is adorned by a garland of yellow flowers and decked with yellow (golden) ornaments. She pulls the tongue of a demon by her left hand, while raising the right hand to strike him with a club. Another description says that she has four arms and a third eye. A yellow crescent moon adorns her forehead.

Though generally depicted with a human head, the goddess is sometimes described to have a head of a crane and sometimes depicted ridding a crane. Sometimes, she is described associated with other birds: having a duck-head or a nose of a parrot.

 India’s significant contribution to the world, “The Vedas” were originated from Sri Parameshwar. Sree Bagalamukhi (Peetambara) Devi, who is worshipped by the Supreme God Sri Parameshwar, has only two temples in India – one in Himachal Pradesh in North India and the other Sre Suryamangalam Temple at Pappankulam Village South of Kallidaikurichi in Tirunelveli District of Tamilnadu in South India. Apparently, divine form of Devi Aadhi Parashakthi is constantly worshipped by Sri Mahadev, Lord of Kailas.
    Devi Aadhi Parashakthi created the five elements – fire, air, water, sky and earth and with them the universe, innumerable living beings, plants and trees and the fourteen worlds inclusive of the heaven and hell, the Gods, the demons and human beings.
    Linking all creations in the Cycle of Creation, Protection and Destruction; for the everlasting existence of the universe; the Goddess, an embodiment of three qualities, Sattva, Rajas and Tamas, created the Supreme Gods: Brahma, Vishnu and Maheshwara (Shiva / Mahadeva) for maintaining the cycle.  Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva were created with the qualities Sattva, Rajas and Tamas respectively and were entrusted with the rituals concerning the Creation, Protection, Destruction and were provided with Saraswathy, Lakshmi and Parvathi to Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva respectively by Devi Aadhi Parashakthi in order to give strength to their performance of the rituals.
    Devi Aadhi Parashakthi, the creator and protector of all worlds and the supreme Gods gave darshan to the Gods including “The Trinities” in Ten (10) forms at different times and in different moods suited to the occasion. The manifestation of the Ten forms is known as “Dasa Maha Vidhya”.
    Devi Aadhi Parashakthi gave darshan in Ten divine forms namely, Mathangi, Bhuvaneswari, Bagalamukhi (Peetambara), Tripurasundari, Tara, Mahakali, Maha Lakshmi, Chinna Mastha, Dhoomavathi and Bhairavi and is worshiped by Brahma Deva with Mathangi Mantra, by Vishnu Deva with Tara Mantra and by Mahadeva (Shiva) with Sree Bagalamukhi Devi Mantra.
    The most powerful divine spirit of the Dasa Maha Vidhya is Sree Bagalamukhi Devi worshipped by Mahadeva (Shiva) an embodiment of Tamas. Due to the equal co-existence of the three qualities – Sattva, Rajas and Tamas, Sree Bagalamukhi Devi is omnipotent. By worshipping with Bagalamukhi Mantra, it is possible even to make the Gods immobilized. It is for this reason that Sree Bagalamukhi Devi, who is beyond the Mantras of the four Vedas and all other Mantras and occultism, is worshipped by the Gods themselves.
    There is no other ritual in vogue which is more powerful and fruitful than Sree Bagalamukhi Yaaga to tackle and find a permanent solution for law-suits, litigation, problems created by enemies and black magic. One of the three qualities of Devi, Rajas provides these blessings; the quality of Sattva provides Mangalya Siddhi (Marriage), Santhana Siddhi (Children) Sowbhagya Dhampathya Varadanam (Happy Married life), Dhanabhagya  Siddhi (Wealth) and Arogya Siddhi (Health);the quality of Tamas puts an end to the diseases due the sins of the previous birth, Pithru Saapam (curse of the ancestors), Naga Dosham (Raghu Dosham), evil spirits, poverty, debts and the ill effects of the planets and provides eternal comfort and happiness.
    Sree Suryamangalam Advaitha Veda Vidhya Peetam, situated in Chennai has been performing Sree Bagalamukhi Devi Yaaga according to the Thaantric Vidhi for the past Twenty-five (25) years. The Yaagaagni taken from Arani is being kept intact for the past Twenty(20) years.
    In the temple being built for Sree Bagalamukhi Devi, the consecration and worshipping are done per “Thaantric Vidhi” only. Like the other Gods and Goddesses, the Vedic Sastra Vidhi or Aagama Sastra Vidhi are not adopted in consecrating and worshipping Sree Bagalamukhi Devi. In the worship and other related rituals, strict adherence is essential and the same are maintained here. Even a slightest deviation will result in severe punishment to the priest due to Sree Bagalamukhi Devi’s anger.
    Among the Ten divine forms, known as Dasa Maha Vidhya of Devi Aadhi Parashakthi; Mathangi, Bhuvaneswari, Tripurasundari and Mahalakshmi are in Sattva Guna form; Mahakali, Tara, Bhairavi and Chinna Mastha are in Rajas Guna form; Dhoomavathi is in Tamas Guna form. But Sree Bagalamukhi Devi is the embodiment of all these three qualities – Sattva, Rajas and Tamas. Hence, the omnipotent Sree Bagalamukhi Devi can be made easily angry and easily pleased.
    Clad in a yellow dress, adorned with ornaments and a garland made of Champak flowers full of fragrance, the smiling Sree Bagalamukhi Devi on the golden throne in “Varada Mudra” reveals the Sattva Guna mood; possession of Mudgaram, Paasam and Vajrayudha weapons reveals the Rajas Guna mood; and the yanking of the tongue of the evil’s enemy by the hand reveals the Tamas Guna mood.
    Performing Sree Bagalamukhi Devi Yaaga on the Amavasai night is fully beneficial and will destroy the effect of Black Magic and drive away your enemies and the problems created by them and assure you victory in legal matters.
    Performing Sree Bagalamukhi Devi Navakshari Mantra Yaaga and doing Sarvaroga Samana Mantra Homam on the Suklashtami day will enable you to get rid of Pithru Saapam, the sins of the previous birth and Raghu Dosha and will provide you hale and healthy.
    On the full moon day in the night during Sree Bagalamukhi Devi Maha Mantra Yaaga, performing Paramanna Homam with Bhagya Sooktha and Mangala Sooktha Mantras will drive away the ill effects of the marriage and will provide Subha Mangalya Siddhi (marriage), Santhana Siddhi (children), good married life, wealth, employment, job promotion and higher education and will fulfill all your requirements.
