KAAL BHAIRAV IS THE DEEP TEACHER OF THE UNDERGROUND FORCES
Kaal Bhairav, is the Tantric teacher of the secrets of depth & darkness. He is the darkest form of Shiva who has his monthly night on every 8th waning Moon.
This will be the last ritual of the year where we will sink to the basement of our being and study the foundation that we are existing from.
The growth of our existence springs from the fundament.
Existence can be a Sweet blooming Rose,
Existence can be a Sharp Thorn without the Rose.
Existence can have both.
‘Tis a time when the left-hand Tantrics delve into the secrets of his realm.
Time, Death & Fear are the doorways to the secrets of his realm.
Kaal in his means black or time. He be the black Crow master who rides upon the Black Dog. Crows and black dogs belong to his realm and are the messengers of his secrets.
Within the inner and outer skies of existence, Kaal Bhairav is the dark side of the slow planet Saturn, recognised by Tantrics as the planet whose magnetism draws – to the foreground of awareness – the darkest aspects from deep within the hidden recesses of the soul.
Left-hand Tantrics approach Bhairav
each month on half-Moon night of balance
and spend time investigating the dark
and secret layers of their being.
Of themselves, Time, Death & Fear have no inherent realty if their own, and yet they weave the very fabric of reality, along with the movements of reality.
Time, Death & Fear create us and we in turn create them.
By unweaving the psychic investments we may be intertwined within in the realms of Time, Death & Fear, we come face to face with Bhairav.
He is the face of reality without distractions and trimmings. He is sober and direct and offers no beliefs, distractions or methods of escape.
His teaching is to face reality beyond the matrix of personal and collective illusion.
His truth is not easy to see if we have been spiritually intertwined with the structures of untruth.
Kaal Bhairav is the teacher of the dark aspects of the 3 worlds.
When he is approached honestly, courageously and in honour, he can disclose the secrets beyond the doorways of Time, Death & Fear.
Kaal Bhairav Ashtami is a time in which to study
the deep dark layers of oneself,
shedding the outer layers like a snake,
to touch the mysteries beyond the threshold of time.
is the dark doorway to the secrets of the realm of Bhumi
Bhumi is the tangible, terrestrial realm of manifest reality. Literally the earth where we live.
is the dark doorway to the secrets of the realm of Patala
Patala is the unconscious underworld, often feared, unrevealed, denied and suppressed
is the dark doorway to the secrets of the realm of Svarga
Svarga is the ultra-terrestrial realm beyond the threshold of earthly awareness. It is the spirit world of subtle energies.
TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE
Time is of the essence and may even contain the essence itself, but our time can also be something devoid of magic. When it is barren of Moonlit Magic, then time becomes something to waste away.
Some of the modern rituals we repeat daily are worth our investigation, for if something is done repeatedly with our concentration, then it becomes a ritual.
Rituals rituals everywhere,
Some a lullaby, some to scare,
Rituals can entrap,
Kaal Bhairav ritual-worship has the potential to show us the most obvious and yet easily unseen things of what we are doing with time, or is it perhaps… what time is doing with us.
When we align to the deep, slow and sober realm of Kaal Bhairav, then he guides us into the invisible line between life and death, beyond the threshold of creation and destruction.
Life and time, creation and death, all hold hands with each other in the realm of a Kaal Bhairav.
teaches the Wisdom of Death.
He shows us that
the creative spiritual impulse
is not free of Death,
for Creation without Death can’t be
Kaal Bhairav is a deep friend, liberator and protector.
He is himself knowable within Time, Death & Fear.
Holding the Danda (the stick of power), going by the name of Dandapatti, which means the friend with the stick.
It is the magic staff of healing with which he helps us to heal the sacred heart and unfold the secrets of our destiny. His stick heals by the tap of Time, Death & Fear.
His stick is the spine that flows with the dance of circuitry between the currents of life and death. The stick of power is within grasp of our hand when we study the mysteries of Kaal Bhairav.
The Danda of Kaal Bhairav
is the stick that carries the soul
across the portals of life
on a boat of Time, Fear & Death
