Bagalamukhi Jayanti 2019 date is May 12. 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.
