I salute Kalabhairava who is served by the king of gods. He is very compassionate and wears snake as his sacred thread and moon on his head. Ether is his clothing and he is praised by Narad and other yogis. He is the supreme Lord of the city of Kashi.
I salute Kalabhairava who is effulgent like million suns and who can redeem us from this ephemeral world. He has three eyes and a blue throat and he bestows all prosperity. He is imperishable and his trident supports the three worlds. He s the death of death and the lotus eyed one. He is the supreme Lord of the city of Kashi.
