With the Blessings of our Guruji, "Kayilai Gnanaguru Dr. Sri Muralidhara Swamigal, we are performing Kala Bhairavar Homam on Kala Bhairava Jayanti, Friday 30th November 2018 in the occasion of Kala Bhairavar Jayanthi at our Sri Danvantri Arogya Peedam by 10.00 AM.
Lord Kala Bhairava, a manifestation of Lord Shiva, is God of Time. He protects his devotees, removes all obstacles, cleans the soul with his sheer intensity and turns things around favorably for a sincere devotee.
Bhairava originates from the word bhīru, which means fearful. Bha means creation, ra means sustenance and va refers to destruction. Thus, Bhairava refers to the one who creates, sustains and dissolves the three stages of life.
Bhairava is recognized as the terribly fearful form of Shiva. As a Lord, He is actually the one who destroys fear or one who is beyond fear. He protects his devotees from dreadful enemies, greed, lust and anger.
He is also called Dhandapani (as holds a rod or Danda meant to punish sinners). His vahana is a dog and hence also referred to as Swaswa meaning "whose horse is a dog.
Kala Bhairava :
Legends say that once when Lord Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh were discussing their superiority over one another, Lord Shiva became infuriated by some remarks of Lord Brahma. It is said that in the fury, Lord Bhairava appeared from Shivas forehead and severed one of the heads of Lord Brahma. Another version speaks of how Lord Bhairava emerged from a nail of Shivas finger, that he threw.
It is thus that Lord Brahma came to have four heads. With the Brahma Kapala (Brahmas head) in the hands of Lord Bhairava, Brahma attained enlightenment, let go of his egoistic thoughts and arrogance.
