Masik Kalashtami – 7 February 2018

Masik Kalashtami – 7 February 2018

Masik Kalashtami in the month of February (2018) is on the 7th of February 2018, Wednesday. ‘Masik’ (Sanskrit word) means monthly. Kalashtami (also Kala Ashtami) is an important day-time that is determined as per the Hindu lunar calendar. Kalashtami is sometimes called Bhairava Ashtami. Masik Kalashtami is celebrated (per Hindu calendar) on a monthly basis that falls on the Ashtami Tithi (8th day after Purnima (full moon)) of Krishna Paksha (waning moon, lunar fortnight).   It is celebrated in north and south India; and also in Nepal and Sri Lanka. Though the main celebration falls in the Hindu calendar month of Margashirsha (corresponding to Gregorian months period – November December). The main celebration is called the Kalabhairav Jayanti and Bhairava Ashtami (both are the same).

Many devotees observe Vrat (Fast) and perform Puja as dedication and spiritual devotion to Lord Bhairava on every Masik Kalashtami.  This is to seek blessings of Lord Bhairav. Also, the Puja is done primarily in seeking divine blessings of Lord Bhairav and asking him to evade life miseries, fear; eliminate sorrow and suffering, pain etc.; and to enable prosperity, happiness, sharpen skills etc.

Lord Bhairav (destroyer of fear), a manifestation of Lord Shiva, is followed-worshiped amongst Hindus, Buddhists and Jains. Some of the other popular names of Lord Shiva (also Hindu natives’ first names) are Jatin, Jagadisha, Nataraja, Pashupati, Pranav etc, and each having a distinct meaning. 

UNESCO World Heritage site, famous Pashupatinath Temple in Kathmandu, Nepal, is dedicated to deity Lord Pashupati. There are numerous Shiva temples across India, especially in south India.
