Baglamukhi Mata History
Goddess Bagalamukhi story is very interesting and there are many legends of How She appeared. According to one of the Legends, long time ago in Satya Yug a raging storm came on Earth. The storm was so powerful that it destroyed everything that came in its way. Mother Earth and all the living species on the planet were endangered. Observing that the condition was becoming worst, Lord Vishnu started performing austerities on the Haridra Sarovar shore to Goddess Tripura Sundari to take charge of the situation and to stop the storm from further destruction. Pleased by the austerities of Lord Vishnu, the Goddess emerged from the lake of turmeric in the form of Goddess Bagalamukhi. She calmed the gushing storm and thus saved Mother Earth from destruction and restored the order of the universe.
There is another legend which states that, there was a demon named Madan, He had acquired the boon of Vak- siddhi according to which anything he said came true. Madan misused this boon and troubled humans and also killed them. Terrified by the demon all the Gods ran to Goddess Bagalamukhi to seek help. The Goddess grabbed the tongue of demon Madan and immobilised it and raised Her left hand to slay Him with a club.
