Lord of Time - Lord Kala Bhairava
To be successful in life more or less boils down to being at the right place at the right time. If we fritter away our time on useless pursuits and can not remember what we did then we are essentially offending Lord Kaala Bhairav. Time lost is lost. Wasting time is tantamount to insulting Lord Kaala Bhairav. If we are mismanaging time and wasting it on frivolous pursuits it is necessary that we worship Lord Kala Bhairav to help us better utilize time towards a constructive end. The direct benefit would also be that you will miraculously be at the right place at the right time when opportunities come knocking. He can bestow good or favorable time on the seeker.
The worship of Kala Bhairava is particularly important during the 60 years from this Chitrabhanu Year (mid April 2002) to the next Chitrabanu Year (mid April 2062).
Kalabhairava is usually depicted in a fierce form decorated with serpents and carrying a head, which according to the Puranas, was the fourth head of Lord Brahma which lord Shiva in his aspect as Kalabhairava cut off to teach him a lesson. Kalabhairava is one of the eight Bharaiva fierce manifestations of Lord Shiva. He is blue-throated from swallowing the poison to save the world; He is three-eyed with eternal supreme wisdom in his third eye. His eyes are like Lotus flowers. He is Death of death being the vanquisher of death. He is indestructible, wears the garland of human skulls and carries the trident.
The Shiva Sutra 'Udyamo Bhairava' denotes an instant upsurge in consciousness. Our fixation with our perception of reality makes us miss instantaneous manifestation opportunities, which is the purpose of the chant. When we repeat this sound, we become established in an ability to change things in an unusual way.
'Bhai' will give you material wealth; 'Ra' will dissolve negativity and limited consciousness; and 'Va' will keep creating things. Keep chanting the syllables. Say the sounds 8 times a day of 1 minute each, anytime of the day or evening, you can chant the mantra more than 108 times on a day or by writing the mantra more that 1008 or 10008 times will grasp excellent results . This sacred sound will serve as a reminder that every second counts, and enable you to focus and utilize time effectively.

Who can benefit from Lord kaala Bhairav worship:
- Inability to think or act constructively with the end result being that every activity results in wasting time (mental paralysis is what I would call it)
- Students spending lot of time in their education still not able to read anything constructively and unable to score.
- Those working spending enormous amount of time to do the simplest of tasks
- Facing too many hurdles due to every task taking too much time to accomplish. Lord of Time is unhappy and hence every mole becomes a mountain. eg. If you are doing grocery shopping - some item on the list is unavailable and you end up visiting 4 stores on different part of the town and what should be done in 2 hours takes 6 hours.
Lord kaala Bhairav is the lord of time.
