Significance of Kaal Bhairav Jayanti Katha Mahatva:
Once there was a fight going on over who is the best among Tridev, Brahma Vishnu and Mahesh. The debate on this matter kept on increasing, after which a meeting was held after calling all the deities. Here the most asked is who is the best. Everyone discussed and found the answer, which was supported by Shiva and Vishnu, but only then Brahma ji said abusive words to Lord Shiva, due to which Lord Shiva got angry and he considered it as an insult.
From that anger, Shiva created his own form Bhairav. The vehicle of this incarnation of Bhairav was a black dog, with a stick in one hand. This incarnation is also called by the name of Mahakaleshwar. That’s why he was called ‘Dandadhipati’. Seeing this form of Shiva, all the deities were terrified. In anger, Bhairav cut off one of the five faces of Brahma ji, since then Brahma has four faces. In this way, the sin of killing Brahma came upon Bhairav ji because of beheading of Brahma ji. Brahma ji apologized to Bhairav Baba, then Shiva ji comes in his real form.
