श्री ब्रह्मास्त्र-विद्या बगलामुख्या नारद ऋषये नम: शिरसि।
त्रिष्टुप् छन्दसे नमो मुखे। श्री बगलामुखी दैवतायै नमो ह्रदये।
ह्रीं बीजाय नमो गुह्ये। स्वाहा शक्तये नम: पाद्यो:।
ऊँ नम: सर्वांगं श्री बगलामुखी देवता प्रसाद सिद्धयर्थ न्यासे विनियोग:।
सौवर्णामनसंस्थितां त्रिनयनां पीतांशुकोल्लसिनीम्
हेमावांगरूचि शशांक मुकुटां सच्चम्पकस्रग्युताम्
हस्तैर्मुद़गर पाशवज्ररसना सम्बि भ्रति भूषणै
व्याप्तांगी बगलामुखी त्रिजगतां सस्तम्भिनौ चिन्तयेत्।
ऊँ ह्रीं बगलामुखी सर्वदुष्टानां
वाचं मुखं पदं स्तंभय जिह्ववां कीलय
बुद्धि विनाशय ह्रीं ओम् स्वाहा।
