KAAL BHAIRAV ASHTAKAM ( कालभैरवाष्टकम् )

KAAL BHAIRAV ASHTAKAM ( कालभैरवाष्टकम् )It was written by Adi Shankaracharya. Kaal bhairav, the fearsome aspect of Lord Shiva, is the God who is the protector of Benares. Once Brahma insulted Lord Shiva and his fifth head teasingly laughed at Lord Shiva. From Lord Shiva came out the Kalabhairava { Black Bhairava} who tore off the fifth head of Lord Brahma. On the entreaties of Lord Vishnu, Shiva pardoned Lord Brahma. But the sin of beheading Lord Brahma followed Kalabhairava everywhere. Also the head of Brahma stuck to him. Regular chanting of  Kaal bhairav Ashtakam gives peace of mind and keeps away all the evil from your life and makes your healthy , wealthy and prosperous..
