Kalashtami or Maha Kalabhairav Ashtami is the most auspicious dedicated to Lord Kal Bhairav. Kal Bhairav is god of time – kal means “Time” and “Bhairav” the manifestation of Lord Shiva. Ashtami after Purnima, the eight day after full moon, is considered the ideal day to propitiate Kal Bhairav.
Lord Bhairav is also known as Kshetrapalaka and also worshipped for wish fulfilment and for good fortune. He is also worshipped for protection against black magic and other negative energies. Lord Bhairav is worshipped before undertaking any journey and travels.
The vehicle of Lord Kal Bhairav is the dog. Feeding and taking care of dogs is another way of showing our devotion of Lord Kal Bhairav.
