Significance of Kalashtami 2022

Significance of Kalashtami

The greatness of Kalashtami is described in ‘Aditya Purana’. The main deity of Kalashtami worship is Lord Kaal Bhairav, ​​who is believed to be a form of Lord Shiva.

The word ‘Kaal’ in Hindi means ‘time’. Whereas ‘Bhairava’ means ‘manifestation of Shiva’. Hence Kaal Bhairav ​​is also called ‘God of Time’. The followers of Lord Shiva worship him with full devotion.

According to Hindu legends, once there was some discussion going on between Brahma, Vishnu, and Mahesh. During an argument, Lord Shiva became enraged by a remark passed by Brahma. Then he assumed the form of ‘Mahakaleshwar’. In anger, he cut off the fifth head of Lord Brahma. Since then, gods and humans worship this form of Lord Shiva as ‘Kaal Bhairav’. It is believed that those who worship Lord Shiva on the day of Kalashtami get the blessings of Lord Shiva. There is also a popular belief that worshiping Lord Bhairav ​​on this day removes all suffering, pain, and negative effects from one’s life.
