The Kaal Bhairav Story
The Shiva Puranas claim that Brahma and Vishnu were once questioned by all the gods about who was the finest person in the world. Then, each claimed to be superior. Over this issue, a conflict broke out between the two. After then, all the gods enquired into the Vedas and discovered that only Lord Rudra was supreme, that they included the past, present, and future, and that they were everlasting, eternal, and immortal. After hearing this information from the Vedas, Brahma used his fifth mouth to criticize Lord Shiva. Then, Lord Rudra materialized as heavenly light. O Rudra, you are born from my heart, Brahma remarked. Please look after me, he begged, calling out “Rudra.” Shiva became enraged at Brahma’s actions and informed Bhairav that he should reign over Brahma.
With the nail of his little finger on his left hand, this Bhairav, who possessed divine power, severed the fifth head of Shiva Brahma. Bhairav thereafter had permission to proceed to Kashi and slay Brahma there at Lord Shiva’s request. Bhairav was named Kotwal of Kashi by Rudra. Kotwal, a kind of Bhairav, is worshipped here. Without Bhairav’s darshan, Lord Vishwanath’s darshan is deemed insufficient.
