Bhairava is derived from the word bhīru, which means “frightening”. Bhairava is interpreted as a “terribly frightening form” and is also referred to as one who eliminates fear or one who is beyond fear. It is believed that he safeguards his devotees from dangerous adversaries such as greed, lust, and anger, which prevent people from connecting with God.
Additionally, it is thought that Bha stands for creation, ra stands for preservation, and va stands for destruction, making Bhairava the one who creates, sustains, and dissolves the three stages of life, thus becoming the ultimate or supreme being.
