Teekshna Danshtra Kaala Bhairavaashtakam -A request

I have searched and found most of this stotra. But still there are some missing words.  This stotra is very rare and not sound so easily. What ever few books have printed it have not given the entire text. I found only one with entire text but since it is an old book and damaged, some words are missing. I am trying my best to locate the books containing that stotra. My sincere wish is to post the entire stotra so that who ever recite it benefit from it.

Does any one know who has written it or in which Sanskrit Text  it is available? If some one knows please mail me.

I have a request to make to you all. Who ever is reading this post if you have the  Teekshna Danshtra Kaala Bhairavaashtakam or Maha Kaala Bhairavaashtakam in sanskrit version, can you please send me a copy preferably in Word or any document  that can be edited (Not Pdf please) through mail so that I can edit it, add the missing text and post here. 

The ones in Pdf are not opening properly (font problem)so that I can edit it. There are so many fons in Devanagari and it is difficult to convert a pdf into editable copy.

I am finding it very difficult to type in Devanagari script and also difficult to find any errors or mistakes in the words in Sanskrit.

Can someone help me with proof read of the Stotra in Sanskrit please?  

I am sorry for so much delay.

Teekshna Danshtra Kaala Bhairavaashtakam - Update

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.

Request to all my readers:

I have been receiving many emails for this ashtakam in Telugu and Devanagari scripts. I am trying to type this in those scripts. But it takes lot of time for typing, comparing with the texts I have in old books and making corrections. Please bear with me. As soon as I complete, I will post them here. 

Please keep checking my blog.

A Visit to Shirdi wale Sai Baba

I was in Mumbai last month for an office conference. I was swamped at work the entire week, but I had some time off on the weekend and a friend of mine suggested that I take a trip to Shirdi. When it comes to travelling I am always ready. So, I chalked out a schedule and switched on my computer to book my bus tickets to ShirdiOnline bus ticket bookings are the easiest thing I have come across, where your pass to travel, is just a click away.  I booked my ticket from “My Bus Tickets” and luckily I found a window seat.

I was leaving on a Friday evening and it so happened, that Narendra Modi had a rally that evening too. Mumbai traffic becomes nerve wracking as it is, and with the rally in full swing, it was nothing short of mayhem. I finally reached my pick up point for the bus and was all set to visit Shirdi. It takes about four and a half hours to reach Shirdi from Mumbai and it was a pleasant ride because of the magnificent sights through the Konkan region. Shirdi is not just about the Sai Baba temple but about the city itself. The sombreness of the place is its biggest attraction.

A cup of coffee at sunrise, in my room, overlooking the sea made the trip all the more worthwhile My exploration started with two local beaches in town, followed by the sacred Sai Baba temple. I also payed my respects at Baba Chavadi, Dwarkamai Musjid, Khandoba Mandir and other small temples in and around the city. During all of this, what caught my attention was a beautiful little museum called Dixit Wada, located within the Shri Sai Baba Sansthan Trust Comp which houses the belongings used by Sai Baba during his lifetime. Apart from the city’s sacred spirit, the biggest plus point about Shirdi is its authentic Marathi cuisine. With all the local flavours, my taste buds just went on a joyride.
This is Khandoba Temple
This is the Shirdi Sai  Baba Temple
This is the beautiful Shirdi beach.

All I can say is that my trip was worth every penny. I felt refreshed and rejuvenated with the austerity of the place, the vintage Marathi cuisine and the sheer magnificence of the city. Shirdi truly cleanses ones soul with all its purity.
