Teekshna Danshtra Bhairavashtakam

This is my favourite Bhairav stotra. I use it often to get rid of negative energies or entities around me. And to recharge my personal energy. Its energies are Ugra, intense and can be terrifying if you are not prepared to understand that you are much more than just the physical body.

This is the audio 

And I have written very briefly on the meaning of the verses using the regular meanings of the Sanskrit words, nothing too esoteric, else I would have to write a book on it. This is the beauty of Sanskrit (Devbhasha Samskrutam), a palimpsest, layers and layers of meanings. 

  • Eg Teekshna तीक्ष्ण means pungent, vehement, sharp, also peppers, resins of certain plants like asafoetida, a few trees are called teekshna, sea-salt, rude, rough, poison, keen, iron, inauspicious, hot, haste, harsh, fiery, death, battle, ascetic, weapon, acid, zealous, severe, etc. But what ‘teekshna’ means in this stotra is a matter of understanding as well as experience. Reference to Context. The context is all important.

This stotra is in eight shlok/ verses. Each line begins with a beej mantra. The lines have to be understood in context of the beej mantra which precedes it.

This is a description of the Bhairav, the auspicious one, the fearless one, the terrible, formidable, the highest of the high. He is considered to be an Ugra energy, he will take your sense of tiny individuality firmly and finally merge it into the highest ie himself. He is the destroyer of creation or more correctly he is the one who remains after all creation is annihilated. He is the protector of the Kshetra, ie he protects the seat of the highest divinity within you. Thus he is the ‘nearest’ to the Kshetra (to understand the concept of ‘near’ read the Bhashya on the Mandukya by Adi Shanakracharya). This is the Bhairav of the Vijnyan Bhairav Tantra who helps you reach that highest state of attribute-less-ness which you really are. He is the Shivah, the ultimate auspiciousness itself, ie the Advaita.

(Bhairav is not the personification of the Tamogun (post here). Often the personification of Tamo-gun, is also called Shiv, causing endless and unnecessary confusion.)

The stotra beings with the sound of the Damaru which is the sound of OM. When you play the Damaru there are binaural beats created which create a subtle sound of Om. Om is the creation (pravrutti) or the moorti of the Advaita (nivrutti). Every stotra has to begin with the sound of Om, so here they have creatively used the Damaru to create the vibration of Om. Om is the conscious intelligence which is the thing of this manifested universe which is closest to the Advaita. Thus Om can be considered to be a Moorti of the Advaita.

The first shlok is,

  • Yam Yam Yam yaksha rupam dasha dishi vidhitam bhumi kampayamanam
  • Sam Sam samhara murtim shira mukuta jata shekharam chandra bimbam
  • Dam Dam  Dam deergha kayam vikruta nakha mukham chordhva romam karalam
  • Pam Pam Pam paap nasham pranamata satatam Bhairavam Kshetrapalam. (1)

Yang – This is the beej mantra indicating the omnipresent, the eternally pure and auspicious one. Every beej mantra recited correctly ends in the ‘ng’ sound (in this recitation they are not pronounced correctly, but the person reciting it has done it with a pure intention, thus there is power in his voice). The ‘ng’ akshar is the enchanting awareness, beautiful intelligence and the attractive consciousness which controls the power of sound ie vibrations. 

He is the sustainer of the forms. He sets the ten directions as per the proper geometry as per the correct rules, ie creates and sustains the universe. The ten directions are the conscious Dasha Mahavidya (post here). He creates the conscious energies who organise the perceived universe. He sets this geometry, situation and objects into motion. He causes them to shake, tremble, vibrate, ie exist. He causes them to apparently change, ie he creates Time. He is everything that exists, all concentrated together. Everything that you see is drawn from him. He is the comprehensive description or a compendium of everything. 

Sang – This is the beej mantra for the one who is the true reason for everything, the one who is the single true description of everything. Also the enchanting intelligence controlling the power of vibrations.

He is the conclusion, ie he remains always. The manifested creation is dissolved back into him. He contracts everything back into himself. He stops the illusion of apparent change. He annihilates duality. His is the energy of the fully expanded Sahasrara chakra, its ‘luminous petals’ stretching infinitely, encompassing everything. The illusions of karma and memories are powered by his energy. The energies of creation flow from the highest point ie him. His highest illumination is reflected off his highest point by his power, this radiance is seen in the third eye during spiritual practice.

Dang – This is the beej mantra for the one who causes increase by granting sustenance. Also the one extremely pleasing to visualise. The enchanting energy controlling the power of vibrations.

He is the depth of this created multitude. He is the only attainable one. He is the deepest sign. He makes all imperfections leave. All unnatural, artificial, misshaped agitations are annihilated by him. All diseased incompleteness is removed by his granting the true intelligence of the source. He makes all energies flow strongly upwards, ie towards the highest apex, towards himself. He is the one who cuts through all bindings strongly and decisively with his sword of light. He is also the mouth of the terrible single pointed energy which devours the illusion called creation. 

Pang – This is the beej mantra of the one who destroys all forms of alternatives, duality, blocks and illusions. The enchanting energy controlling the power of vibrations.

He destroys all forms of evil ie notion of change and duality. All inauspiciousness, trouble, harm, wickedness are nullified, the biggest harm being ignorance of the self. Pran, ie the vital energies are reined in, inclined towards, course towards, are channelised by, always continuously, perpetually, eternally, by such a Kshetrapal Bhairav.

Ghang – This is the beej mantra indicating the one who grants all auspiciousness and stillness. The enchanting energy controlling the power of vibrations.

He is the sound of the bow string which launches the self towards the Self. He is the power of the vowels of Sanskrit and also the power of vibrations itself. He proclaims his presence with the eternal sound. He is auspiciousness, stillness, also the thundering, roaring, deep energy of the Naada. (Om is created from the Naada, post here). 

Kang – This beej mantra takes away all dangers, duality and poisons. Also grants blessings and boons for positivity and welfare. The enchanting non-dual awareness which controls the power of vibrations.

He is the edge of Time, the boundary till where Time/ Space can exist. He is the fetters which tie the individual soul to fate. He is massive energy at the entrance of the Sushumna. He keeps the Sushumna inaccessible, tightly closed. He is also the fortress of the Eternal. He is the established, fixed, certain, complete, consistent, whole. He is the eternal fiery radiance, always burning. He destroys all illusory enjoyments, pleasures, desires, purposes, longings and also the subjects/ objects of such desires. 

(Time or Kaal is relative. We measure time in reference to changes that we see around us. In Jyotish we measure Time by the movement of the Sun, the Moon, the Nakshatra, Jupiter and the time from sun-rise to sun-rise. These are the 5 types of calculations for ‘year’ that we use in Jyotish. Actually there are 9 ways of measuring Time, of these 5 are used in Jyotish. And there is nothing called ‘Time’. Kaal is a matter of observing one type of change against another type of change, it is basically a series of changes. Might write a post on Kaal.)

Tang – This is the beej mantra which grants all material and subtle things required for true prosperity and is always radiant, true, pure and pleasing. The enchanting consciousness controlling the power of vibrations.

  • Namo Bhootanatham

I bow down to that one who is the lord of all individual soul, jiv-atma-s, the five mahabhoot-s, all property, all worlds, etc. The holder of all that there is. 

  • Namo Pretanatham

I bow down to that one who is the possessor of all that has concluded.

  • Namah Kaalkaalam 

I bow down to that one who is the destroyer of all illusions of change. Time is measured in terms of change.

(Change means that there are two things, two states ie duality. He is the destroyer of the illusion of duality.)

  • Namah Rudramalam 

I bow to the one who wears a garlands made of pure awareness and the conscious energy of vibrations. 

  • Namah Kalika premalolam karalam

I bow down that one who out of love (for the seeker, spiritual aspirant), lights up the dark blackness visible at the third eye by a flash of conscious lightening.

(Thus the Kundalini enters the cavernous opening of the Sushumna and in one sweep merges with the Bhairav at the Sahasrara. Thus destroys the illusions of creation and realises the non-dual, Advaita.)

  • Namo Bhairavam Kashikam Kshetrapalam 

I bow down to that one fearless one, the most high, eternal Non-dual awareness. The protector of the highest awareness. The sustainer of the eternal consciousness. The self illuminated, Radiant. The Advaita.

(Kashi when used in the esoteric context is the third eye. The Ajnya chakra is the Kashi-kshetra of the body you reside in. The individual jiv-atma resides here in an ashtapadmadala chakra ‘behind’ the Ajnya chakra or the Kuthastha (post here))

Namah means more than just ‘bow down’! This word means something like the Ultimate power which is the paradox of illusion and wisdom united together. Depth of stillness and flowing movement together. The eternal unborn one in solitude.

I sometimes recite this beautiful Teekshna Danshtra Bhairavashtak endlessly. Listen to it on a loop for days from time to time. It enchants my mind, silences it, removes all negativity, energises my soul. I was doing this for the past week, immersing myself in it, so thought of writing about it in brief. 

(I have used images of the Shivlingam in this post. Again, the Shivlingam is not connected to the personification of the Tamogun. The Shivlingam is a visual moorti or sign or mark used for the Advaita.)

    Namaste Respected Madam,

    Thanks for this wonderful post! All your posts are so impactful – I’m floored by particularly three posts. The one on Indra ( which I have read so many times), 33 koti devatas and the one about the real nature of Sun. I have watched countless videos where big names from top universities from across the world try to explain consciousness, multiverses and multi dimensions to the viewers. But you were able to explain a very complicated subject so succinctly with a bedsheet example. You have immense knowledge and a generous heart and you are great teacher. Thank you!

      Hi there
      I write what I personally experience. Nothing else but this.
      Thanks fr the compliment.
      It is good to know that someone at least made use of these type of posts.
      Otherwise most comments i get are only about Jyotish consultations.

      These things are very easy, very natural, but people who have not experienced it try to show that they know, use big words and end up confusing everyone including themselves.

      Hi there
      It is a very valuable book. One of my very favourites.
      Do read the first part ie questions very carefully asked by Shri Devi (she is not Parvati) and answers by Bhairav (he is not Shankar) .
      Shri devi is the jivatma and Bhairav is the Parmatma Advaita.

      I am writing a bit on this part right now but probably will have to write it in a book format as its too voluminous to b published as a post.
      Will take a couple of months though.

    Dear Tejaswinima’m,

    It is wonderful to read this post. While I broadly knew that Kaalabhairav is a powerful protector, your explanation took my understanding to an altogether new level ! Just a small request …. if you think it relevant, please write the occult aspects and hidden knowledge of Ma Kaali or Chamunda upasana too. There are a lot of confusions, fears and misunderstanding about Kaali upasana and her energies….

    It would be indeed great l if you could throw the light of your profound wisdom on how we should go about worshipping this raudra roop of the Goddess.

    Your Sincerely,
    Hema

    Dear Mam,

    Kindly look into the below queries:

    1. There are others stotra or kavcham for prtotection from evil or negativity . for e.g. narasimha rajapadha sostram, Varah kavcham, Narasimha mantra rajapadha sostram , Hanuman Vadvanal Stotra , Durga Saptshati and above mentioned Bhairav stotra
    Please recommend which one should listen to?

    2. Mam I can’t read Sanskrit, is it acceptable to listen to these stotras . I fear reading and pronouncing wrong words will give negative results?

      Hi there
      Choose whatever you like. I do not recommend anything.
      If u can channelise more power use a stronger one. And it also depends what level yr enemies/attackers are.

      To me, this Bhairavashtak feels purifying, obviously also protective.
      Personally I have obviously used mantras frm Saptashati, the mantras sampitut with the navvarna. the devi kavach or atharvashirsha, tantrokta ratri sukta etc. This book has everything one needs.
      used kavachs of several deities including Kalika Ganapati Aparajita Shanimahakaal etc. khadgamala is a favourite. also used the tryambakan, vishnusahastranama, shri sukta, gayatri mantra etc to create kavachs.
      All mantras are protective. In fact its easiest to use soham or even om as a kavach.

      If u cant read Sanskrit i wrote a post on learning Sanskrit.
      U can listen if u cant read.
      But check if the recited version is accurate. Once i heard a recitation of shri sukta where she was singing “laxmih me nashyatam tvam vrune” instead of “Alaxmih me….” a horrible mistake.

        Thanks a lot Mam.

        If possible please recommend the most powerful kavcham or stotra. I do attract a lot of negative forces around me ,since childhood, whether it’s from friends, strangers or relatives without any reason. Most of the time i am afraid of unknown intensity. Though i am not hesitant of facing any adversary because it might be my past karmas but half of my life is wasted in wading and confronting these negativities. My personal and professional life has suffered a lot due to this.

    Namaste Ma’am. Thank you for spreading a bit from your extensive knowledge.

    If you could please help in identifying the right process to learn more about our religion and spirituality, what would be the right order? Do we start with Bhagavat Gita or the Vedas or Upanishads or the Puranas or somewhere else?

    Thank you for everything that you have taught so far!

      Hi there
      Ur choice.
      Bhagwat gita is good I wrote a few posts on it. Read them.
      Use the index page.
      Upanishad r part of Ved. The 10 frm jnyan kand are very important.
      “ Ved” =4 ved+ aranayak+brahmana+upanishad
      Avoid purans.
      Whatever u choose, do soham dhyan regularly

    Dearest Tejaswiniji,

    A beautiful post on something so esoteric and profound🙏🏻 Thank you so much🙏🏻♥️

    Can the Teekshna Danshtra Bhairavashtakam be only chanted if you are initiated into it by a Guru? If your answer is yes, then can the uninitiated atleast listen to it. This involves an ugra devata, so was wondering…

    Lots of love and gratitude

        Hi there
        thnx fr the compliments ..
        am writing on on the Runes, i have to write about 10K more words, so shud be done in a couple of weeks ..
        and i have started writing on the questions and answer part of the vijnyan bhiarav tantra, i dont know if this will be a post or will have to be made into a book format, if its too long then a post format is not logical..
        and i want to write on the dakshinamoorti stotra
        lets see how soon or long this takes,

        fundamentally all topics are the same, ie about energy consciousness awareness intelligence .. experiencing it and then transcending it all..

    Ma’am,

    If you are okay with it, can you please provide the name of the person who has recited the stotra?

    Look forward to your book on Vigyan Bhairav Tantra. It will be a gift to us readers.

    Dearest Tejaswiniji,

    I have been chanting the mantra Om Ksham Namaha. After reading your post I realised I should have chanted “Om Kshang Namaha”…. although nothing bad happened. For a long time I used to be afraid to chant mantras, it is your posts that have encouraged me😀 Once again many, many thanks for this awesome post🙏🏻♥️ Your answers to the queries here are equally enlightening 🙏🏻

    Dear Mam

    I keep re reading your previous posts to gain knowledge about myself and they are very enlightening. I get many answers. May god bless you for helping all of us. This time to understand strength of my planets I read your navamsha posts and then found out more.

    I read my daughter’s chart. She is Scorpio ascendent, with moon in 6th house and Scorpio moon with ascendant in navamsha.

    Should I keep a distance from my daughter, she is 12 only. Most of my life energies went into helping her, at least that’s what I thought!

    Please suggest what can one do if one is an enemy for their kids astrologically.

    Regards
    Shweta

      Hi there
      if your daughter has her moon in the 6th in D1 but shifts into the ascendant of her D9 then the Moon has a very important role in her life esp in bringing out her potential in life. depending on the other things, her professional success can be linked to such a moon

      there is a saying that ‘mat-bhed’ are possible but ‘mann-bhed’ shud not b there
      why should you keep your distance?
      if you think that there can be an issue, then you are older than her, and her mother,
      am sure that you will be able to exercise your authority, also give her an outlet to express her opinion. most important give her your love /trust and let her know that you are always with her..

        Thanks mam,

        It consoles me a bit that even though I am her enemy astrologically, if I take care that Mann bhed doesn’t happen, we can sail together.

        I suggested keeping distance because I thought such chart points out that mother is not good for kid.

        She has Saturn and Mars in 10th house, rahu in 3rd and sun Venus in 8th and Jupiter in 2nd, moon 6, mercury 7 with Scorpio ascendant

        I have changed a lot in trying to understand my daughter’s needs. I did have repressed anger during later pregnancy against my mom in law, could this be a factor responsible for such chart of her.

        Thanks for guiding! 🙏🏻🙏🏻

        Best Regards

        Hi there
        its not that the mother is always an enemy or not good to the kid, this is not a analysis that you should take from one position, eg if the dashas / transits are supportive this often does not emerge as an issue
        its just that she generally passes on her sense of ‘debt, disease, enemy, service, serve/suffer’ ie the 6th house items to the kid,
        or put another way, the child is more aware of her mother being overworked, tired, ill, etc etc 6th house items
        so you can take better care of yourself so as to not being any of these things in the future, eg dress well, spend more time with her, take care of your health, etc
        do some fun activities with her if you can etc

    Hello ma’am,

    Mars is handling multiple posts this Samvatsara. So will it be generally good for leo and cancer ascendant as mars is yogakarak for them?

    Also, will this covid situation exaggerate once saturn gets retrograde around 22may?

      Hi there
      not so, these are the general trends related to mundane jyotish, related to larger lands, not individuals per se, for that you hav to see the individual horoscopes,
      in fact this is not a good period for Aries but Scorpio has a better time, both are Mars’ rashis
      Cancer will have to face Saturn in 7th house and Jupiter in 8th, 7th, 8th, houses, not good
      Leo has a better time coz Saturn is favourable
      Saturn is very capable of causing havoc in Shravan, which he is doing,
      reg, covid i have written in some post tht things will ease out after Jupiter enters poorvabhadrapada and better after he enters pisces, but we have to take care as long as saturn is in capricorn/Aquarius .
      i had also written about war, this is a sort of war, antinational forces are waging an insidious war on us. and these viruses seem more like a biological warfare than anything else

I am speechless but immensely buzzing after reading and hearing this wonderful TEEKSHNA DANSHTRA BHAIRAVASHTAKAM. I think it’s about time I start learning Sanskrit. I hope to visit remote Himalayas sometime soon…seed of desire lately has been sown….hope to visit Kumaon region as well.
