  1. great that this is online and to find for the right people ,

    but i have a request ,

    would you change the picture on this website becoze i see there’s real fysical blood offerd to her…..

    that is a gaint and realy a misconseption of the meaning offering blood..

    prana is distributed true the blood stream thats why she and Kali is associated with blood.

    offering blood means not offering blood like this way ..

    she does not like that.

    oke hope u know now and understand

    it onley give’s bad karma that we have to clear again ..

    much love blessing of shri ma baglamukhi

    I was born and raised in Nepal, but have been living in Canada for the last 35 years. I’m publishing a book on Nepal’s pilgrimage places and would like to use the Baglamukhi Mai’s photo you’ve here with your permission, of course. I’ll put your name for the source of this photo. Please let me know if this sounds good to you.
