Lord Sharabeshwara Protects, Motivates and Offers Quick Relief to Problems
Lord Sharabeshwara is a part-bird part-beast form that’s more powerful than a lion or an elephant. In the two wings of Sharabeshwara comprise, Devi Pratyangira and Shoolini Durga. In totality, Lord Sharabeshwara has multiple powers within Him to remove tough enemies, black magic and saves life from dangerous situations. According to Sharaba Upanishad of Atharva Veda and other religious texts, God Shiva assumed the Sharaba form to pacify Lord Narasimha whose ire was uncontrollable after killing Hiranyakashipu.
A devotee can seek refuge in this lord when he is in a calamitous, sorrowful mess and also when unrighteousness claims his life. Lord Sharabeshwara comes to help when your memory wanes, your strength declines and you do not get what you rightfully deserve. His blessings are enormous in the form of courage, bravery, peace and love. He cures you of long-standing diseases, severe afflictions, jealousy and all bad elements that cause trouble in your life. Sharabeshwara is a vanquisher of evil, a great protector, motivator and well-wisher. Just as Lord Shiva is the root cause of siddhi or spiritual attainment and buddhi i.e., spiritual knowledge Lord Sharabeshwara is a formidable force—the lord of bhakti or devotion, and spiritual fortitude. It is said that Sharabeshwara is actually not an avatar, but existed in all yugas. He modifies his role according to the need of a particular yuga to correct and absolve sins and mistakes.
Kalashtami is a perfect time to invoke lord Sharabeshwara which is not only the day of Kala Bhairava, another fierce aspect of Lord Shiva. The Sharabeshwara Maha Homam on the day grants double blessings of both lords that are Shiva forms for keeping your foes away and giving you immense bliss and contentment.
