Kalashtami 2016: Legend Behind Bhairav Ashtami
The legend describes the tale of the day when Lord Vishnu and Lord Brahma had an argument on the topic that who among them is more powerful. The argument rose to such a height that Lord Shiva had to call a meeting including the great scholars, sages, and saints to find a solution and reach the conclusion. After the meeting came to a solution, Lord Vishnu agreed , but Lord Brahma did not accept it. This outraged Lord Shiva, as it was an insult to him and he took a destructive form. Hence, a new Avatar came into existence which was of Kaal Bhairav. In this Avatar, he came riding on a black dog with a truncheon in one hand. That is why he also got the name 'Dandadhipati'. This horrifying form of Lord Shiva scared the demigods. Seeing this situation, Lord Brahma apologized in front of the Kaal Bhairav Avatar of Lord Shiva. After being convinced by all the Gods, saints, sages and Lord Brahma himself, Lord Shiva restored to his original form.
