katha

bhairavashtami ya kalashtami ki katha ke anusar ek samay shrihari vishnu aur brahma ke madhy vivad utpann hua ki unamen se shreshth kaun hai. yah vivad is had tak badh gaya ki samadhan ke lie bhagavan shiv ek sabha ka ayojan karate hain. is sabha men mahattvapoorn gyani, rishi-muni, siddh snt adi upasthit the. sabha men lie gaye ek nirnay ko bhagavan vishnu to svikar kar lete hain, kintu brahma ji is nirnay se sntusht nahin hote. ve mahadev ka apaman karane lagate hain. shantachit shiv yah apaman sahan n kar sake aur brahma dvara apamanit kiye jane par unhonne raudr rup dharan kar liya. bhagavan shnkar pralay ke roop men nazar ane lage aur unaka raudr rup dekhakar tinon lok bhayabhit ho ge. bhagavan shiv ke isi roodr roop se bhagavan bhairav prakat hue.[2]

bhairav ji shvan par savar the, unake hath men dnd tha. hath men dand hone ke karan ve 'dandadhipati' kahe gaye. bhairav ji ka roop atynt bhaynkar tha. unake roop ko dekhakar brahma ji ko apani galati ka ehasas hua. vah bhagavan bholenath evn bhairav ki vndana karane lage. bhairav ji brahma evn any devataon aur sadhuon dvara vndana karane par shant ho jate hain.
