Kalabhairav Jayanti

Kalabhairav Jayanti is a Hindu festival dedicated to Lord Kaal Bhairav, the violent form of Lord Mahadev (Shiva). It is also famous as ‘Kala Bhairav Ashtami’, ‘Kalashtami’ or ‘Mahakaal Bhairavashtami’. This auspicious day is observed on the ‘ashtami’ (8th day) of the Krishna paksha (the waning phase of moon) during the Hindu ‘Kartik’ month. On this day people also perform special Kala Bhairava Ashtami Pooja for their dead ancestors.

‘Kaal’ means time and ‘Bhairav’ word means an aspect of Lord Shiva. Thus, Kaal Bhairav is the Lord of Time. The Vahana of Lord Kalabhairav is a dog and so, on this day, dogs are offered with food items by the devotees.

Kalabhairav Mantra:

”Hrim vatukaya apadudharanaya kuru kuru batukaya hrim.”

“Om hreem vam vatukaaya Aapaduddharanaya vatukaaya hreem”

“Om Hraam Hreem Hroom Hrime Hroum Ksham Kshetrapaalaaya Kaala Bhairavaaya Namaha”

Lord Kala Bhairav bestows good or favourable time. Kalabhairav is in particular worshipped for removing obstacles, gaining health, wealth, and success. It is believed that those who observe fast on Kaal bhairav Jayanti get rid of the fear of death and sins (like Brahma Hatya). The worship of Kala Bhairava is important for those who live in a foreign country and are frequent travellers. The Kalabhairav Jayanti or Maha Kala Bhairav Ashtami is celebrated with lot of enthusiasm and passion in different parts of India.

It is also believed that the occasion of this Jayanti is able to provide the worshipper with mystic effects that can transform their lives. With the blessings of Lord Mahadev (Shiva), all kinds of problems are removed from the path of the worshippers and they are able to become a successful person. Ashtami Pooja for Kala Bhairava also nullifies the influence of Planet Shani and Planet Rahu, as worshiping Lord Kala Bhairav is advantageous for getting blessings of these malefic planets. Issues in family and relationship are also resolved with the blessings of God Kalabhairava. With his blessings, the person is also able to overcome his opponents.
