Before praying with Kalabhairava Ashtakam Lyrics let’s understand who is Kalabhairava.

In this post, we’ll present to you Kalabhairava Ashtakam Lyrics in Kannada, English, Hindi, and Telugu. It’s going to be a long post.

Kalabhairava Ashtakam Lyrics are written by the greatest Aham Brahmasmi script author Shri Adi Guru Shankaracharya.

Let’s now look to understand who is Kalabhairava and why he is prayed.

 

Who is Kalabhairava?

When the Tri Devas Brahma, Vishnu, and Maheshwaara are in danger or hurt the world with their deeds, others swing to action to save the universe.

Every one of the Tridevas has each other’s back.

For Ex.) When Bhasmasura wanted to test his burning capability on Shiva himself, who gave the boon, Lord Vishnu sprung into action.

Lord Vishnu took the avatara of Mohini and challenged Bhasmasura for dance and made him burn himself.

In the same way, once Lord Brahma who is the creator of the universe got very egoistic about his creation capability, Lord Shiva took cognizance of this.

Lord Shiva created Kalabhairava, an avatara with his nail who is a very angry avatar of Lord Shiva.

Lord Brahma had 5 Shira (Bahushira) one on the top and 4 in each direction.

This phenomenon which in the modern era is called head weight caught Lord Brahma.

Lord Shiva created Kala Bhairava with his fingernail.

Kala Bhairava is naked and his vehicle is a black dog. He is an angry young man Avatara.

Kala Bhairava marched towards Lord Brahma and severed the head on the top with his nails.

This Brahma Hatya dosa caught Kala Bhairava and the Kapala of Lord Brahma stuck to his hand.

Hence Kalabhairava is always seen meandering with the Kapala like a beggar.

Let’s now look at Kalabhairava Ashtakam Lyrics in many languages.

Kalabhairava Ashtakam Benefits:

Kalabhairava Ashtakam was one of the most beautiful compositions by the great Adi guru Shankaracharya. 

Phalasruthi of Kalabhairava Ashtakam was mentioned in the 9th stanza as below.

Kalabhairava ashtakam patamthi yae manoharam
Gnana mukthi sadhakam vichitra-punya vardhanam
Soka moha dainya lobha Kopa tapa naasanam
Taey prayamti Kaalabhaivaamghri Sannidhi druvam

Meaning:-
Reciting this Kalabhairava Ashtakam gives a pleasing feel. Passing the divine knowledge and liberation.
Also provides a variety of virtues.

Also destroys the Sadness, Delusion, Misery, Greed, Fury, and Taapa & guides you toward the sacred feet of the lord Kalabhairava.

If you recite this kalabhairava ashtakam daily for a few days, you can feel the difference.

You’ll feel the positive vibes and be elated whenever you read it.

My suggestion is first to try to learn the sloka by understanding each and every word and then chant it daily.
Feel every word in the sloka and recite it daily, and I can guarantee you will start feeling eternally bliss.

He (Kalabhairava) promises (mentioned in the last stanza) to his devotees that who recite it daily, Lord Kalabhairava, will remove their lust, greed, arrogance, grief, anger, and so on.

If our bad qualities get eradicated by the lord himself, then all our miseries end, and we will be left with peace.
