Shakti Udbhavam Bhaya Naashanam. It is rise of power that destroys fear.
In the present age of Kaliyug, Bheirav Sadhanas are the most easy and effective. The text Tantraalok describes this deity as Bheibheemaadibhih Avateeti Bheirav i.e. one who protects one from even the gravest dangers is Bheirav. The text Shiv Mahapuraan states that Bheirav is a form of none other than Lord Shiva.
Bheiravah Pooornnaroopo Hi Shankarah Paraatmanah. Moodaaste Vei Na Jaananti Mohitaa Shiv Maayayaa.
One should offer Gur (jaggery) and ghee (clarified butter) to the Lord in each Sadhana. This is the choicest food of the Lord and this offering pleases him most.
Daily offering a chapati smeared with ghee to a dog during the Sadhana also pleases the Lord.
This is the best day for this Sadhana.
Try it on tenth day of any fortnight of any Indian month. Before yourself make a mound of black sesame seeds (Kaale Til) and on it place a Batuk Bheirav Yantra. Then join both palms and meditate on the form of the Lord chanting thus.
Kaam Pradaan Var Kapaal Trishool Dandaan.
Bhaktaarti Naash Karanne Dadhatam Kareshu,
Tam Kostubhaa Bharann Bhooshit Divya Deham.
Next take some rice grains in your right hand and pray for the solution of your problem, pain, affliction etc. Then move your hand around your head and throw the rice all around your worship mat. Thereafter chant 11 rounds of the following Mantra with Batuk Bheirav rosary daily for a week.
Batuk Bheirav Mantra :
After completion of Sadhana throw the Yantra and rosary in a river or pond. Very soon you shall have favourable results.
Start this Sadhana from any Monday night. Wear a white Dhoti/saree and light an oil lamp. Before the lamp place an Unmatt Bheirav Yantra (in form of amulet) in a copper plate.
Before this Yantra make a mound of rice grains and on it place a Shubhra Sfatik Manni. Join both palms and meditate on the form of the Lord chanting thus.
Shree Sanhaarak Bheiravopyath Ru Rushchonmattako Bheiravah.
Krodhashchand Unmatt Bheirav Varah Shree Bhoot Naathastato,
Hyashtou Bheirav Moortayah Pratidinam Dadhyuh Sadaa Mangalam.
Then taking some water in the hollow of your right hand pledge thus – I, (name), am doing this Bheirav Sadhana for my own (or a family member’s) good health. May the Avataar of Lord Shiva, Bheirav put an end to all my ailments (or bless me with a child). Having pledged thus let the water flow to the ground.
Thereafter offer Kaajal (soot prepared from a mustard oil lamp) and vermilion (kumkum) on the amulet and the Manni. With a White Hakeek rosary chant 5 rounds of the following Mantra.
Unmatt Bheirav Mantra
After two weeks throw the rosary and Manni in a river or pond. Thread the amulet in a white string and put it around your neck or the patient’s neck. If the Sadhana has been accomplished for a child then the wife should wear it. After a month throw it in a river too.
The night of Kaalaashtmi is the time for conquering even death. This is a very auspicious time that combines the blessings of both Lord Bheirav and Goddess Kaali. Start this Sadhana from the eighth day of any fortnight of any Indian month.
For this wear a red or yellow Dhoti/saree. Then sit on a red mat facing South. Before yourself place a steel plate and in it write
with vermilion (Kumkum). In the centre of the plate place the Kaal Bheirav Yantra and Mahaa-Mrityunjay Gutikaa. Also keep some iron nails ready. For example if there are seven members in your family then seven nails should be enough.
Wrap the holy red thread (Mouli) around each iron nail. Keep chanting
while you do so. Then offer the nails one at a time on the Yantra each time speaking out the name of a family member. This ritual is for procuring divine protection for each family member. In this Sadhana the Stotra Mantra of Lord Bheirav is chanted. Chant the following Mantra 108 times.
Viditam Bhoomi Kampaayamaanam.
Sam Sam Sam Sanhaar Moortim Shir Mukut
Jataa Shekharam Chandra Bimbam.
Dam Dam Dam Deergha Kaayam Vikrit Nakh
Mukham Oordhvaroyam Karaalam.
Pam Pam Pam Paap Naasham Prannmat
Satatam Bheiravam Shetrapaalam.
Next take some black mustard seeds (Kaali Sarson) in your right fist and chant the following Mantra 11 times. Then move your hand three times around your head and wrap the seeds in a paper.
Kaadi Karejaa Chakhan Karo Kat Kat.
Om Kaal Bheirav, Batuk Bheirav, Bhoot Bheirav, Mahaa Bheirav, Mahaa Bhaya Vinaashanam Devataa.
Next chant the following Mantra for one hour.
Kaal Bheirav Mantra :
This is only a single day Sadhana. After the chanting is over take the nails, the seeds, the Yantra and Gutika and go and throw them at some crossroad.
Wear black clothes and sit on a black mat. During the Sadhana period maintain celibacy. Start the Sadhana from the fifth day of the dark fortnight of any Indian month. Try it only at night. Sanyasis and Yogis perform this ritual only on a river bank, in a funeral ground or a temple of Lord Shiva, but for a common man separate room or space at home should do just fine.
Make a mound of vermilion and on it place a Bheirav Yantra. Then make a human figure with clay and colour it red with vermilion. Then place it over the Yantra.
Pray to the Guru for success in the Sadhana. Then taking some rice grains in the left hand chant the following Mantra and throw the rice grains in all directions for protection from negative forces.
Aatma Raksha Mantra
Om Hraam Hreem Hroom Hroum Namah Aagneye.
Om Hreem Shreem Namah Dakshinne.
Om Gloom Bloom Namah Neikritye.
Om Proom Proom Sam Sah Namah Pashchime.
Om Bhraam Bhraam Namah Vaayavye.
Om Bhraam Bram Bhram Phat Namah Eishaanye.
Om Glom Bloom Namah Oordhve.
Om Ghraam Ghram Ghrah Namah Adhodeshe.
Thereafter make a mark of Kaajal on your forehead and also on the Yantra and the clay figure. Make marks with vermilion as well. Then with a Black Hakeek rosary chant the following Mantra. The Mantra of this Sadhana is very powerful, hence only the strong hearted person should try this Sadhana. Women, children and old people should better keep off this Sadhana. This Sadhana is to be done at night only. One Lakh chantings have to be done to complete this Sadhana. So decide yourself in how many days you wish to complete this ritual and calculate the daily number of chantings yourself. If you wish you can chant 25 rounds of the following Mantra daily for 40 days.
Bheirav Pratyakshikarann Mantra
During Sadhana one may visualise the form of Lord Bheirav. The night you have such an experience do the following the next night.
Offer a blue cloth on the clay figure and make a mark on it with vermilion mixed with mustard oil. Arrange the following eatables – a chapati smeared with mustard oil, a sweet prepared from jaggery and wheat flour, jaggery, and pakoras made from Urad Dal – in a plate and offer them to the Lord. Light incense and start chanting the Mantra.
If the Lord does not appear that night then repeat this the next night as well. If he fails to appear again repeat the third night and he shall surely appear. When he does and tells you to ask some boon then speak out your wish respectfully. After this Sadhana has been successfully accomplished no enemy or adversary can harm the Sadhak.
After Sadhana throw the Yantra and rosary in some unfrequented place.
This is a very powerful Sadhana, hence try it only after having had Guru Diksha. Start this Sadhana from a moonless night. Wear black clothes. Sit on a black mat facing South and place a Bheirav Gutika and a Tantrokt Nariyal before yourself. Then take some mustard seeds (Sarson) in your fist and speak out the name of person, enemy or problem from which you wish riddance. Then speaking the following Mantra throw the seeds in all directions.
Then with a Black Hakeek Rosary chant 14 rounds of the following Mantra daily for 8 days.
Vikraal Bheirav Mantra
After Sadhana throw all Sadhana articles in a river or pond.
At night have a bath and wear a yellow Dhoti/Saree. Sit facing North. Light incense. Pray to the Guru for success. Place the Swarnnaakarshann Bheirav Yantra before yourself. On it make a triangle and on the three corners of the triangle place Three Kamala Beejs.
Join both palms and meditate on the form of the Lord chanting thus.
Tarunn Timir Neelo Vyaal Yagyopaveetee.
Ritu Samay Saparyaa Vighna Vichhed Hetu,
Rjayati Bheiravnaath Siddhidah Saadhakaanaam.
Then with a rosary of Kamalgatta chant three rounds of the following Mantra daily for 13 days
Swarnnaakarshan Bheirav Mantra
After Sadhana throw the Yantra and rosary in a river or pond. Tie the Kamala Beejs in a yellow cloth and leave the bundle in a temple.
