Bagalamukhi Jayanti 2017 date



Bagalamukhi Jayanti is believed to be the day when Goddess Baglamukhi appeared on earth. It is observed on the Shukla Ashtami or eighth day during the waxing phase of moon in Vaishakh month. Bagalamukhi Jayanti 2017 date is May 3. The Goddess is an avatar of Mother Goddess Shakti and is also one of the Dasa Mahavidyas.

Legend has it that the Goddess appeared to protect Dharma which was challenged by an Asura named Madan. The Goddess defeated him and pulled his tongue. The demon then prayed for forgiveness. Symbolically, this suggests that the greatest threat to Dharma is from unwanted speech.

Shakti temples in western and northern parts of India observe special rituals on the day.
