You can find the Siddha worship procedures for these eight special girivalam days in the November 2ØØ2 issue of Sri Agasthia Vijayam, the Ashram monthly magazine. The Sathguru, Guru Mangala Gandharva Venkataraman, has been revealing these Siddha procedures for many years now.
In the Company of the Bhairava LordsWhy are the eight days from Nov/12/2ØØ2 to Nov/19/2ØØ2 considered special girivalam days? The Siddhas say that these are days during which the Ashta Bhairava Lords (eight Bhairavas) Themselves perform Arunachala girivalam. Thus performing Arunachala girivalam on these days gives us the unimaginable privilege and honor of circling Arunachala with Lord Bhairava Himself.
The Siddhas refer to this unique occurence, that of the eight Bhairavas circling Arunachala, as Sri Bhairava Vijayam. Devotees should perform girivalam on these eight days and thus be a part of this once in a lifetime experience.
Avatars of Kaala BhairavaThe Ashta Bhairava Lords are avatars of Lord Kaala Bhairava. Kal Bhairav worship is very important in this Kali Yuga. For protection from bombs, biological and chemical poisons and evil influences, one must worship Lord Kala Bhairava.
The Siddhas say that those who are connected with the punya bhoomi of Bharata (India) have a God given responsibility to pray for the entire world. One of these requirements is Sri Kaala Bhairava pooja for the welfare of the entire world.
