Bahuchara Mata, was the daughter of a charan Bapal dan Detha of Saurashtra. The Charans are a poet-warrior community whose women are regarded as living manifestations of the Mother Goddess.
They have also traditionally fought on the front-lines of battle along with the Rajputs.
Bhauchar Mata was on a journey with her sisters when their group was attacked by a dacoit named Bapiya. There was a long standing tradition among Charans. They would rather kill themselves than surrended. Bhauchar Mata and her sisters cut off their breasts before life seeped out of them. But before she died, Bhauchar Mata cursed Bapiya who became impotent.
The curse was only lifted when Bapiya who used his masculinity to attack women dressed himself as a woman and repented for his sin.
Bahuchara Mata is the protector of the transsexual Hijra community. Her most popular temple is situated in Bahucharaji town of Mehsana district, Gujarat. Lakhs of devotees attest to the wonderful powers of Bhauchar Mata.
May Mata Bhaucharji bless all her devotees with respect for divinity present in all as feminity! Jai Mata Ji!
