Goddess Bagalamukhi is the Eighth of the Dasa Mahavidya. Her name is the combination of Bagala and Mukhi. Bagala, which is distortion of the original Sanskrit root Valga, means bridle.
The headgear used to control a horse is known as bridle. Hence Bagalamukhi means the Goddess who has the power to control and paralyze the enemies. Due to her capturing and paralyzing powers She is also known as Devi of Stambhana.
Bagalamukhi Origin – As per legends, when a huge storm erupted over the earth which threatened to destroy the whole of the creation, all the Gods assembled in the Saurashtra region and prayed to the Goddess. When appeased by the prayers of the Gods, Goddess Bagalamukhi emerged from the Haridra Sarovara and calmed down the storm.
Bagalamukhi Iconography – Goddess Bagalamukhi has a golden complexion. She sits in a golden throne in the midst of an ocean of nectar full of yellow lotuses. A crescent moon adorns her head. She is portrayed in yellow dress. She has two arms. 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 interpreted as an exhibition of Stambhana, the power to stun or paralyze an enemy into silence. This is one of the boons, for which devotees worship Goddess Bagalamukhi.
Bagalamukhi Sadhana – Bagalamukhi Sadhana is done to defeat and paralyze the enemy. She is also worshipped to win the court cases and to get success in all sorts of competitions.
