Baglamukhi Jayanti 28 April 2023

Baglamukhi is a goddess in Hinduism, known for her power to stop or paralyze enemies. She is also known as Pitambara, which means “yellow clothed,” and is often depicted wearing a yellow sari or cloth. Baglamukhi is considered to be one of the ten Mahavidyas, or great wisdom goddesses in the Hindu tradition.

According to Hindu mythology, Baglamukhi was created by Lord Vishnu to help him defeat a demon named Madhu. She is believed to have the power to control and manipulate speech, and is often associated with the practice of “tongue control” or “speech control,” which is said to help one gain mastery over others.

Baglamukhi is often worshipped for her ability to help with legal issues, conflicts, and court cases. Her devotees also believe that she can help them overcome obstacles and blockages in their lives, and protect them from harm caused by enemies or evil spirits.

Baglamukhi Jayanti is celebrated on the eighth day (Ashtami) of the Hindu month of Vaishakha, which typically falls in the months of April or May in the Gregorian calendar.

The most commonly recited mantra of Baglamukhi is the “Baglamukhi Mantra,” which is believed to have the power to stop or paralyze enemies and protect the devotee from harm. The mantra is as follows:

“Om Hleem Baglamukhi Sarvadushtaanaam Vaacham Mukham Padam Stambhaya Jihvaam Keelaya Buddhim Vinaashaya Hleem Om Swaha”

The English translation of this mantra is:

“Om, I bow to the Goddess Baglamukhi, who can control speech, who can immobilize the enemies, and whose power can paralyze the speech, mouth, and feet of the wrongdoers. Destroy their intellect (Buddhi) and eliminate them completely. Om, I offer this to you, Swaha.”

It is believed that reciting this mantra with devotion and sincerity can help one overcome obstacles, resolve legal issues, and protect oneself from harm caused by enemies or negative forces.
