Kala Bhairava - by Vijayakumar Allagappan
The renowned scientist Albert Einstein understood that physical reality as four-dimensional, rather than as a three-dimensional existence, with time as the fourth dimension. The Siddhas, or inner scientists of South India, knew this much in advance. They were aware that time is organized differently on various planets. While time moves slowly on planet Earth, it moves faster on planets vibrating at a higher frequency. Kala Bhairava is the deity who is known to manage time on all the planets.
According to the Siddhas, there is what is known as the Kala Bhairava universe. A divine being called Kala Bhairava rules the universe. In astral travel the Siddhas made visits to the Kala Bhairava universe and gave a description of what the God (Kala Bhairava) looked like. He is dark in complexion, fierce looking, and has a dog as his vehicle. Kala Bhairava has a significant place in all the main temples devotes to Shiva. He is one of the most-feared deities, but actually, he is one of the most rewarding ones. Lord Kala Bhairava is that manisfestation of Lor Shiva who manage time (Kala). Time Shakti or Time Energy was created by Kala Bhairava in all of the galaxies. He through Time Shakti created milliseconds, seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months and years. If one receives instant enlightenment or prosperity or recovery from debt or illness it is the work of Bhairava.
One who worships Kala Bhairavar on Ashtami Thithi will be freed from all debts and loans.
Tantric and anyone who seeking divine power to tackle problems that seems to have no solutions, surrender to Kala Bhairava. He can solve most of the problems, which are pending for a long time. There is nothing more precious than time. So intelligent humans should use every moment effectively on the spiritual path. Those, who want to do this, can get the divine help of Kaala Bhairava, if they request Him with sincerity. Lord Kala Bhairava is worshipped by Yogis and Tantrics to attain Siddhis. Lord Kala Bhairava is regarded as the guardian of Yogis and Tantrics, who attain accomplishment of mantras by doing Sadhana (devotion). Many astrologers and tantricks keep Kala Bhairava with them, to enhance their occult knowledge.
Lord Kala Bhairava exists in 64 forms which are grouped into 8 categories each:
1 - Asidanga Bhairava: Gives Creative Ability
2 - Guru Bhairava: Divine Educator
3 - Chanda Bhairava: Gives incredible energy, cuts competition and rivals
4 - Kroda Bhairava: Gives You the Power to Take Massive Action

6 - Kapala Bhairava: Ends All Unrewarding Work and Action

Some forms of Kala Bhairava embody a wrathful energy which we can use for destroying negativity and for protecting us as well. These tremendous energies emphasize why it is important to honor Kala Bhairava, The Lord of Time. If you encompass his grace, you will find yourself in the right place, at the right time surrounded by the people that will enhance your life to greatness. Bhairava can force you to jump over the bad time choices you make in the form of laziness, lethargy and idleness. You must also obtain the consciousness to discontinue unrewarding action, even in your own job.
Kala Bhairava will not only show you the vision of what it is you want to create, but he will also give you the exact knowledge and clarity of how to get it. So why zig zag through life to get to your goal, when Kala Bhairava can give you that 1 direct path to your goal. It is a common human belief that working hard and long hours will give us the greatest rewards. This is a misconception. The Wisdom of Bhairava can transform the power of your hours into seconds, just by accepting his intentional energy. You can use the following Mantra 108 times during Kala Bhairava Ashtami (waning 8th moon) : 'Hmmm Hram Kala Bhairavaya Namaha'.
