Mythological and Historical Significance of Kaal Bhairav Jayanti 2023

As per a tale mentioned in Skand Purana, a dispute once arose among the Tridevas- Lord Shiva, Lord Vishnu, and Lord Brahma- about who among them was the greatest. Unable to decide who was the most powerful, sages and saints were responsible for deciding who was the rightful. Considering all the factors, saints and sages gave their vote to Lord Shiva and declared him as the greatest. 

This is when the Kaal Bhairav story takes an exciting turn. Not being chosen as the most powerful and the greatest, Lord Brahma starts to disrespect Lord Shiva. Angry Lord Shiva transferred into a fierce form known as Kaal Bhairava. This fierce and dangerous avatar of Lord Shiva cut one of the heads of Lord Brahma. To save Lord Kaal Bhairava from the sin of Brahma Hatya dosha, Lord Shiva suggested he visit sacred sites to get rid of the sin. After finishing this journey and making himself pure, Kaal Bhairav came to Kashi, where he was forgiven for his mistake. 

Coming back to the present, on Kala Bhairav Jayanti 2023, devotees worship and honour the lord, who is beyond time and death. The Kaal Bhairav Ashtami 2023 is celebrated on the 8th day of Krishna Paksha of Margashirsha month.

  • After the completion of the puja, some devotees also chant the Kaal Bhairav Beej mantra: || ॐ एआईएम ह्रीं क्लीं श्री बटुक भैरव || – “Om aim hraam kleem shri batukbhairavaya” and recite the Kaal Bhairav patha and katha.

  • Devotees also observe a fast on the day of Kaal Bhairav Ashtami 2023 and break it after the midnight aarti and puja with phalhaar. 
  • Interestingly, feeding stray dogs and serving them in some regions is also an important ritual. This is because, in Hindu mythology, Kaal Bhairav’s vehicle (vaahan) is said to be a dog. Feeding or taking care of a dog seeks the blessings of Kalabhairava.
  • As per popular belief, the devotees observing the fast should avoid sleeping during the afternoon. Doing this invites unnecessary financial problems in the form of loans, losses or debts.
