Kalabhairava, the fearsome aspect of Lord Shiva , is the God who is the protector of Benares. But the sin of beheading Lord Brahma followed Kalabhairava everywhere . Also the head of Brahma stuck to him. To keep away the sin and punishment which were chasing him, Kalabhairava entered the city of Benares. The sin could not enter the city. Kalabhairava was made as the Kotwal  of Benares.

Yogi and mystic, Sadhguru, looks at the importance of Kalabhairava — a fearsome form of Shiva. We also look at the significance of Kalabhairava Ashtami — the eighth day after the full moon day in the month of Kartik November-December , and the Ashtami celebrations at the Isha Yoga Center. The Kalabhairava Ashtakam audio is also included in the post.
Every year, the Ashtami is celebrated with the chanting of Nirvana Shatakam — the exquisite chant written by Adi Shankaracharya over a millennium ago. The Nirkaya Sthanam is a special water body prepared by Sadhguru for use while performing the last rites of the deceased.
Later in the day, a special arathi is performed and ellu prasadam sesame seed prasadam is distributed. The same program is conducted from 4. The Kayantha Sthanam is a crematorium operated by Isha Foundation where the significant rituals for the deceased are conducted in keeping with their true essence.
In the last century, certain significant rituals pertaining to the journey beyond have lost the essence that lies at their core. Isha offers these rituals which are conducted in the spirit of a service with a powerful energy basis rather than as a commercial venture.
The processes are performed with sensitivity and awareness and can ease the hearts of the family of the deceased. The crematorium maintains two mortuary vehicles which can operate within a radius of 40 km. It also provides services such as tonsure, 16 th day karma ceremony, immediate collection of ashes, and hygienic amenities.
Another such process, Kalabhairava Karma is available at the Isha Yoga Center for those who wish to make use of it. Thanks n Gratitude to Sadhguru to reviving the ancient Glory n spiritual culture of India where even life after death is taken care of Every single day I have been at the Ashram, a strong attraction has always driven me to this Kalabhairava pond where I have spent time meditating or sometimes sitting and just gazing at the lotus in bloom, the cowshed adjacent to the pond and the hills around the Ashram.
Watching this video makes me wonder how huge my karma should be that I have already started worshiping Kalabhairava, although I did not know the significance of this Form until now!! Pardon me, but I simply cannot relate to these religious observations. God is love and not someone who is wrathful, fearsome , destructive or angry. We reflect what we feel inside on the outside world.
Yat Bhavam Tat Bhavathi. We need to use the mind to remove the mind. The key is to use the mind to remove it. Where there is no mind and body conciousness, there is no time. Everyone is born with the purpose of becoming KalaBhairava or one beyond time. Karthik, the problem with the human mind is limited perception and judgements based on these limited perceptions Kaal Bhairav Ashtami falls on 14 December this year.
Wish Bhairav's blessings beautify every being here. Pranams Sadhguru i rememer we used to setup time 10 minutes faster to get ready for the daily startoff , could that i mean have impact on the system? Toggle navigation.

Kalabhairava Ashtakam – kālabhairavāṣṭakam
Lord Shiva has several forms and avatar manifestation of a deity in physical body form. Although his original ascetic form is widely revered, his Pashupatinath and Vishwanath avatar are also quite famous. But one of the most fearsome avatars of Lord Shiva is the Kalabhairava. This form of Shiva, described by Adi Shankaracharya in the Kalabhairava Ashtakam , is shown to be naked, black, entwined with a garland of skulls, three eyes, weapons of destruction in his four hands, and entwined with snakes. The depiction of this form may seem at odds with the dispassionate, calm, and meditative form that many pray every day, but there is deep symbolism associated with Kalabhairava.
