Appearance Day of Lord Kala Bhairava

The word “Bhai” assures wealth in material life, “ra” prevents negative vibrations and limited consciousness and “va” is for creation of things continuously. The manifestation of Lord Bhairava can be traced in the Shiva Purana where the Universal Destroyer takes the form of Kala Bhairava and chops off the fourth head of Brahma in a fit of rage. This happened when there was an argument between the Lord Brahma and Lord Vishnu as to who is supreme and at a point when Lord Brahma’s words infuriated Lord Shiva, He clips a small portion of his nail and creates Kala Bhairava and this form cuts the Creator’s head. Therefore, he personifies the fierce side of Lord Shiva.
