  3. Kaal Bhairav Jayanti Mahapuja
Participate in Kaal Bhairav Mahapuja on 5th Dec, 2023 (Tuesday) on the auspicious occasion of Kaal Bhairav Jayanti and get blessings of protection, health, success and spiritual growth.

Kaal Bhairav is the ruler of time. Worshipping Him, removes the illusion of time and makes the devotee fall in the bliss of the Truth of the present moment. He is also the ruler of Rahu Graha. Worshipping Lord Kaal Bhairav is very auspicious and meritorious as He blesses His devotees with wish fulfilment, protection against all negativities, spiritual progress, health, success, prosperity and relief from malefic effects of Rahu. Kaal Bhairav Jayanti is the day of His birth and invoking Him on this day gives results equivalent to worshipping Him the entire year.

Lord Kaal Bhairav is the fiercest manifestation of Lord Shiva. He is the consort of Maa Bhairavi, one of the ten Mahavidyas. As per Shiva Purana, Lord Shiva took manifestation of Kaal Bhairav to cut-off the fifth head of Lord Brahma to free Lord Brahma of His ego. 

In this form, He vanquished demons and asuras. When Maa Sati couldn’t bear the insult of Lord Shiva at her father Daksha’s Yagna and jumped in the fire, Lord Shiva in rage took the form of Kaal Bhairav and killed the entire army of Daksha and beheaded him. A grieved Lord Shiva then took the corpse of Maa Sati on His shoulder and started doing Tandava which is the dance of destruction. The Devas prayed to Lord Vishnu for help and He used His Sudarshan Chakra to cut the body of Maa Sati in many parts which fell at various places of the earth. Wherever the parts fell there is a Shakti Peeth temple where Maa Sati is worshipped today. Lord Kaal Bhairav is the guardian Deity of all Shakti Peethas and He is worshipped along with Maa Shakti in these temples.

His seat is said to be the popular Kaal Bhairav Temple, Ujjain and He is said to be the Kotwal(guardian deity) of this city. The ancient temple believed to be more than 6000 years old is located on the banks of river Shipra and has been mentioned in Vedic scriptures such as the Skanda Purana. As per legends Lord Mahakaal Himself appointed Kaal Bhairav as the protector of the city. What makes the Shree Kaal Bhairav Temple of Ujjain famous and unique is the custom of devotees offering liquor to the President Deity Lord Kaal Bhairav with special mantras. Here the liquor is poured in a saucer by the temple priest and offered to the Lord by placing the saucer near lips of the Deity, which has a slit. With a little tilt of the plate, the liquor starts disappearing. None have been yet able to locate where the liquor goes, thus it is a mystery but it is believed that Lord Kaal Bhairava Himself consumes.

Traditionally Shaivites of the Kapalika and Aghora sects worship Lord Kaal Bhairav through tantra worship.
