Legends about the Goddess
Every God and Goddess is associated with some legend. How Goddess Bagalamukhi came to earth is an interesting tale. The legend has it that goddess Baglamukhi is the eighth mahavidya (wisdome), invoked for the destruction of enmity or enemy.
Eons ago there was a raging storm on earth. It was so strong that it would have wiped out all creation from it. The Gods were perturbed and held an emergency council to stop the flooding and destruction of Mother Earth. The meeting was apparently held in Saurastra (western India). The storm had to be weakened. From the Haridra Sarovar emerged the form of Goddess Bagalamukhi. This event has been faithfully recorded in the scriptures of Peetambari Peeth in Madhya Pradesh. As the power of the Goddess grew she assumed responsibility for her followers. They started to dedicate temples for her.
Temples in her honor
The most important shrine of the Goddess is in Guwahati in Assam. The temple is very close to Kamakhya where high ranked tantrics meet. She is also worshipped in Newar city (Patan, Nepal), Bankhandi (Himachal Pradesh), Peetambar Peeth (Datia, MP) and Nalkheda (Shajapur, MP).

1. Black magic

3. Legal problems
4. Possibility of accidents
5. Adverse incidents
6. Unnatural events
