Bagalamukhi is one of Hinduism's eleven mahavidyas (great wisdoms). Bagalamukhi Devi smashes the devotee's prejudices and delusions with a bludgeon. The name literally means "crane-faced." The name "Bagla" derives from the Sanskrit root "ValgA." She has a golden complexion and dresses in yellow. She sits atop a golden throne in the middle of a nectar-filled sea swarming with yellow lotuses. Her hat has a crescent moon on it. Various scriptures refer to the goddess as the "Dwi-BhujA" (two-handed) and the "ChaturbhujA" (four-handed) (four-handed).The "Soumya," or milder variant, of the Dwi-BhujA depiction is the most well-known.She is shown holding a club in her right hand, which she uses to hit the demon while pulling out his tongue with her left. This artwork is sometimes depicted as an example of "Shambhala," the capacity to stun or paralyze an opponent in order to quiet them. Bagalamukhi is venerated by her devotees for one of her blessings.
