Ganesha implored and prayed Maa Peetambara at Mahavidhyasharam.
“Oh mother goddess! The one that has golden hair, and a golden vermillion in her hair, looking at us with her eyes that has golden lashes and golden eyebrows, the mother that is seated on golden throne, the supreme mother adorned with gold ornaments… Oh divine mother who is atop a golden chariot, the one that lives in a gold palace and whose aura is golden and her complexion is golden, the one laden with gold and oh mother your smile is also golden. Oh my charming mother… allow me to be a golden Ganesha of yours. Feed me your golden milk; give me the golden fruits and gold laddoos. Make me your gilded son oh mother….
And as he finished, Maa Peetambara was so pleased that she blessed Ganesha with a golden aura and complexion. He was soon clad in peetambar (yellow cloth), he was eating golden laddoos and Riddhi (Wealth) & Siddhi (Skill) both clad in yellow clothes and amazing gold ornaments; were seated next to him. Third energy Buddhi (Intellect) also came to him and attached herself with Ganesha permanently. Thus Shri Haridra Ganesha (yellowy like turmeric) emerged in Valga Mandalam.
Ganesha then implored the supreme mother to create the celestial chart of his life. He requested the mother Shri Maa Bagalamukhi to create golden Mahadasha, Golden Antardasha and Golden Pratyantardasha. Gilded Rahu-Ketu-Mangal, Golden Venus, all planets and planetary positions to be made golden. Golden planets looking the work, luck and birth plans. Golden words may flow from his mouth. The celestial golden pen to write his birth chart, Ganesha implored Shri Maa Bagalamukhi to bless him soon.
Shri Maa Bagalamukhi obliged and she told Shri Haridra Ganesha that “Whoever worships you; they will obtain whatever they ask for – that too very fast and quickly. Those whose golden phase of life is about to begin, will start to worship Shri Haridra Ganesha.”
The narration above I mentioned “Fast and Quickly” this is the forte of Shri Maa Bagalamukhi – she is speedy and swift. She obliges in minutes. She can solve problems and calamities that are complex and not the present birth – those which are applicable in births prior and further to this one; even those problems and knots & bonds are solved and broken by Shri Maa Bagalamukhi. Those who are after you; those malevolent deeds and experiments and scandals that are imposed upon your name and those enemies that are difficult to get rid of; are demolished in minutes by Shri Maa Bagalamukhi.
In the Great Weapons Era the entire universe was Weapon centric. Aadi Parashuram was grinding his mega axe; Shree Ram was adorned with his now and arrows. Raavan was howling with his Chandrahaas Axe. Aadi Rudra was running amok with a Trident. Aadi MahaKali was dancing with skull and sword in her hand. Yoginis were roaring with axes and swords in their hands. Aadi Karthikeyan was flying with his power and Aadi Indra was preparing is Vajra. Aadi Shree Krishna was playing with his Sudarshan Chakra and all the goddesses had mace, swords, snakes, shields and daggers in their hands.
Demons were making weapons of bones and skulls. Animals and birds were using theirbills, beaks, tails, paws and fangs as weapons. Humans were using their limbs in wrestling. Whatever one could lay their hand on, made a weapon out of it. Sages were using thought forms and Yagnik’s (those who utilize sacred fire pit) were using the sacred fire. The warlocks were casting spells and some even using rays of the Sun as a weapon. The Varuna God of the Wind had turned into a twister. Even Megh, the god of rains; was tormenting the earth in form of torrents. Asteroids were moving away from their paths and clashing into each others. Comets were wracking havoc on planets. So many types of weapons, arms and armaments had come into existence that even the supreme creator Bramha was terrified and he sat in solitary seclusion along with Vishnu. They started praying Bhagawati Tripur Sundari. As they went along in their worship, the celestial turmeric dewpond was being filled with a living throbbing energy field. That gave birth to a supreme Goddess that has innumerable hands and supreme reach. The Goddess took away all the weapons, arm and armaments from everyone and everything. The weapons were given small and miniature minute form. The usage of weapon was considered evil and harmful and a penalty was imposed on. Here is how the disarmament of the universe began. Vaishnav thought process began.
Thanks to Mother Goddess Valga imposed various rules and the majesty and magnificence of arms were introduced. This is how weapons research was contained. Armaments were made scarce for everyone, as weapons are a way to self discrimination and self destruction.
This is the golden age of the universe. Maa Bagala saves us from hurtling weapons. She is the ultimate thought form (Kritya). She eliminates and consumes all the physical, astral and spiritual weaponry that are against us.
Worship of Maa Valga is a complete science. She is a part of Shree Vidhya Kula. Any follower that worships Maa Valga develops a protective inner power within him self / herself. The dreaded weapons of diseases, pathos, separation anxiety never enters this person’s body. Impure thoughts and impure learning are unlearned. You know many times impure thoughts and impure activities invade out heart and mind, contaminated thoughts, impure acts, polluted environment and polluted food and drink enters our body; that leads to bodily diseases and psychosomatic diseases. Dermatological problems like severe itch and scratch, eczema are impure diseases. Attacking, kidnap of minors and women, theft, consuming narcotics, adultery are all worst routes to self destruction and Mother Goddess Valga saves us from all these. Curse, impure deeds, acts and annoyance are kept at by when one worships Maa Valga. Sh3e is the one that propagated clean environment in Eternal Universe and she is the one that can do it. Her target is cleaning of impurities of heart as well as mind and propagating pure Sanatana Dharma.
