Satham-pinyai Cha Dhimahee
Thanno Dheva Prachodayath.”

Padam Stambhay Jihvaam Kilay Budheem Vinashay Hlreem Om Swaha.”

The Sanskrit word „Bagalamukhi” is derived from ancient word „Bagala” (distortion of the original Sanskrit root „valga”) and „mukha”, which signifies „face” and „bridle”, respectively.

Another meaning of the word is „The Crane-Headed One”. This bird is thought of as the core of deceit. The Goddess rules magic for the suppression of an enemy’s gossip.

The Goddess rules deceit which is at the heart of most speech.
