Teekshana Danshtra Kaala BhairavaAstakam

In my previous post I have posted on Kaala Bhairavaashtakam. Now I am posting Teekshana Danshtra Kaala BhairavaAstakam. This is even more powerful. Reciting or hearing to this ashtakam will help in time management, reduce the ill affects of Kali and also protect us from evil or negative forces. I like the rhythmic and powerful way the words have been used in this ashtakam to praise Lord Bhairava:

Bhairavaashtaka midam shan maasam yah: pateth narah:

I have tried my best to give the Ashtakam as correct as possible. But I need to refer to the Sanskrit text and make corrections if any. I had a copy but I have misplaced it. I am searching for it.

I appeal to the readers, if they have Telugu or Devanagari version of this Ashtakam can  they scan it and mail it. I am not able to get a copy of this Ashtakam any where else. I would be really grateful to them.

UPDATE 5-3-2013

I have corrected some mistakes and added the Phala Shruti. But I appeal if some one can send me the scanned text in Sanskrit. I am not able to get a copy of the same anywhere. 

 Please listen to the recital carefully and pronounce accordingly. 

Update 6-3-2013

I have received one mail from one of the visitors, who has sent me the Sanskrit Text. 

Luckily, today, while sorting my old books and papers, I got hold of one of the books (old one used by my late father). It has been damaged in the corners (by termites I think) so one or two words are missing. 

The text in this book and in the one sent to me differs in some places. I will have to go through these differences and then I will again post if there are any corrections. 

Update 19-6-2014
I have made some more corrections based on the text I have in a book I mentioned above.
I have added the first line Teekshnadanshtreti praadhanam bhairavosya devata.

Please check up for further updates as there may be some more corrections.

Kaala Bhairava Ashtakam


Kaala Bhairava is one of the (main) eight forms of Bhairava. 

Bhairava is a Sanskrit word meaning Frightful or Terrible. Bhairava is the manifestation of Lord Shiva and associated with destruction or annihilation. He is also known as Bhairo (n) or Bhairadya, Bheruji or Bhairavar.  His consort is Bhairavi-fierce manifestation of Parvati or Durga. His vehicle is dog. He is worshiped by Hindus, Buddhists and Jains. He is specially worshiped in Rajasthan, Tamilnadu and other parts of India as well as in Nepal.  He is also the Kshetrapalaka (protector or Lord of that area) in some temples as well as the Graama Devata protector of the village or village deity. 


Kaala Bhairava is the Bhairava who is controls the "Time" or who controls the power (passage)of time. Time is very precious. The past is gone, future is yet to come, only present is ours. So one has to make best use of time. For this, one has to worship Kaala Bhairava. Reciting or listening to Kaala Bhairavaashtakam will help in proper utilisation of time as well as overcoming the ill aspects of Kali kaala. So here is Kaala Bhairavaashtakam:
