Bagalamukhi is one of the ten mahavidyas (great wisdom goddesses) in Hinduism. Bagalamukhi Devi is also known as Pitambara Maa in North India.Since these goddesses are independently-existing, they can even exist devoid of male counterparts not like the other shaktis who are believed to derive the primarily source from males. Thus, Bagalamukhi represents the potent female primeval force by her own will. She is one of the ten forms of the wisdom goddesses.
