DATTATREYA SIVA BABA: Kala Bhairava is the God of Time. Kala means time and Bhairava is a form of Siva. Time Shakti or Time Energy was created by Kala Bhairava in all of the galaxies. There is no planet or star where there is no time, although perception of time will be longer or shorter depending on each planet.

Every waning, 8th moon is helpful to propitiate Kala Bhairava, the creator of time divisions. When you worship Bhairava on this day, you will never waste time. The Time Shakti will love you so much and she will not allow you to idle away time. Not only that, but you will make intelligent and efficient use of time. Jobs that take a week�s time will be done within 2 days because of the blessings of the Time Shaktis through Kala Bhairava.

Kala Bhairava is also in charge of removing diseases, debts and other negative realities. It is important that everyone makes a personal connection with Kala Bhairava for fruitful use of time and life energy.

Kala Bhairava will (also) watch over you when you are sleeping so that you do not waste Time Shakti (during that time). People who have disturbed sleep should also pray to Bhairava.

If you are endlessly waiting for things to happen and it never happens, this means you have offended time either in this life or a previous one. You can fix the problem by worshiping Kala Bhairava.
