The connection of Bagalāmukhī Goddess with yoga-sādhana

Bagalāmukhī many consider as the Goddess who is paralysing the enemies, however, Her goal is to eliminate the internal enemies in the form of our weaknesses. She helps to control feelings, mind and the most important – prāṇa (vital force). Then She leads to samādhi and the light of our consciousness appearing in the form of the radiant Lalitā Goddess. What is said in the form of aphorisms in Bagalāmukhī-paṭala:

अंतरवायु – सञ्चार – निरोधेन वा || १२ ||
aṃtaravāyu – sañcāra – nirodhena vā (12)

Or through holding the air inside (kubhaka).

तं हठ – योगमाहुः || १३ ||
taṃ haṭha – yogamāhuḥ (13)

This is called haṭha-yoga.
