    Hinglaj Mata (Nani Mandir)





    Hinglaj (Balochi: هنگلاج, Sindhi: هنگلاج‎, Urdu: ﮨنگلاج‎, Sanskrit: हिङ्ग्लाज, Hindi: हिंगलाज) is an important Hindu pilgrimage place in Balochistan, Pakistan and Kuldevi of many Kshatriya, Charan and other Hindu Communities of India. It is situated in Balochistan province about 250 km north of Karachi.[1]

    To still the divine dance, Tandava, of Lord Shiva following the death of Dakshayani, Lord Shiva scattered the remains of her embodiment over various places of the Indian subcontinent. It is said that the head fell at Hingula or Hinglaj and is thus considered the most important of the 51 Shakti Peeths. At each of the Peeths, Bhairava (a manifestation of Shiva) accompanies the relics. The Bhairava at Hinglaj is called Bhimalochana, located in Koteshwar, Kutch. The Sanskrit texts mention the part as 'Brahmadreya' or vital essence. For details, see this.

    The mantra or incantation for Devi Hinglaj is attributed to Saint Dadhichi, an important saint in Hindu theology. The mantra is :

    ॐ हिंगुले परमहिंगुले अमृतरूपिणि तनुशक्ति

    मनः शिवे श्री हिंगुलाय नमः स्वाहा

    OM HINGULE PARAM HINGULE AMRUTRUPINI TANU SHAKTI

    MANAH SHIVE SHREE HINGULAI NAMAH SWAHA

    Translation : "Oh Hingula Devi, she who holds nectar in her self and is power incarnate. She who is one with Lord Shiva, to her we pay our respects and make this offering (swaha)."

    Yet another incantation:

    ब्रह्मरंध्रम् हिंगुलायाम् भैरवो भीमलोचन: |

    कोट्टरी सा महामाया त्रिगुणा या दिगम्बरी ||

    BRAHMARANDHRAM HINGULAAYAAM BHAIRAVO VIMALOCHANAH

    KOTTARI SAA MAHAAMAAYAA TRIGUNAA YAA DIGAMVARI

    Translation : "Mahaamaayaa (Queen of Illusions) who represents the supreme virtue by reigning over all three virtues, has Bhimalochana as her Bhairava, and derides the worldly trappings by dancing naked, resides in this cave of Hingula that enshrines her sacred head."
