Shri Pitambara Peeth (MAA Bagalamukhi)
Shri Pitambara Peeth is one of the most famous Shakti Peetha of Bagalamukhi, which is situated at Kuchaikote, 15 Kms from Gopalganj. In Hinduism, Bagalamukhi is one of the ten mahavidyas (great wisdom). Bagalamukhi Devi bangs the devotee’s misconceptions and delusions with a bludgeon. The name literally means `crane-faced `. The name `Bagla` is a distortion of the original Sanskrit root `ValgA`. She is golden complexioned and her cloth is yellow. She sits in a golden throne in the midst of an ocean of nectar full of yellow lotuses. A crescent moon adorns her head. The goddess is described in two different ways in various texts- the `Dwi-BhujA` (two handed), and the `ChaturbhujA` (four handed). The Dwi-BhujA depiction is the more familiar and is described as the `soumya` pr milder form. She is shown holding a club in her right hand and with which she beats the demon, while pulling his tongue out with her left hand. This image is sometimes represented as an exposition of `sthambhana`, the power to stun or paralyze one’s enemy to silence. This is precisely one of the boons for which Bagalamukhi’s devotees worship her.
