A brief glimpse of the Linga Bhairavi Abhisekham in Nepal was shown, followed by a live shorter version of the Linga Bhairavi Abhisekham with a fire dance in the event.

The Bhairavi Utsav was held on Thursday evening, March 9, in Tudikhel, Kathmandu, following the consecration of the Linga Bhairavi Devi temple on Tuesday, March 7, by the Indian spiritual leader Sadhguru. Linga Bhairavi is a unique, exuberant, and rare manifestation of the Divine Feminine who nourishes all life and manifests as a fierce protector from destruction. The Linga Bhairavi Temple was inaugurated for the first time in Nepal, making Nepal the first country outside of India to house the Linga Bhairavi Devi temple. Sadhguru consecrated Linga Bhairavi through an intense process of “Prana Pratishtha”, an esoteric yogic process that uses life energies to transform mere stone into a deity. 

The celebrations began with an enchanting musical performance by the Isha Foundation group, who captivated the devotees with their verses. Following that, a brief glimpse of the Linga Bhairavi Abhisekham in Nepal was shown, followed by a live shorter version of the Linga Bhairavi Abhisekham with a fire dance. Then, the Niraivya Bhairavi was performed by the Project Samskriti, which is an offering dance to the selection of verses from the Devi Mahatmayam followed by the composition of renowned poet Subramaniyam Bharathiyar. Project Samskriti is an Indian classical art designed by Sadhguru that teaches powerful chants, classical music, Bharatanatyam, and Kalaripayattu, an ancient style of martial art. Project Samskriti will be offering the program in person at various locations in Kathmandu next month. 

The next Linga Bhairavi Abhisekham will take place on April 5 in Nepal's Linga Bhairavi Temple in Basundhara Chowk, Ringroad. The Linga Bhairavi Abhisekham is a set of eleven offerings to the Devi for the well-being of one's family. Navaneetham, Haridram, Chandanam, Kumkumam, Vastram, Patram, Pushpam, Deepam, Naivedhyam, Tamboolam, and Sriphalam are the eleven offerings. These rituals and processes are designed to assist you in many aspects of your life, such as for your family's overall well-being, for children, and for couples.

There were thousands of devotees along with the Former Honourable Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli, Honourable Deputy Prime Minister Narayan Kaji Shrestha, cabinet ministers, and members of Parliament in the celebration of Bhairavi Utsav. There was a special Satsang from Sadhguru to explore the different aspects of Devi with the spiritual questions raised by the devotees for the guru. Devotees also received consecrated Devi offerings- a Devi Abhaya Sutra, a sacred thread supportive of warding off fear and fulfilling ambitions and a special photo of Devi. 

Now, the Linga Bhairavi Devi Temple is open to everyone every day. There is also a daily Abhisekham which takes place from 6:30 am to 11:20 pm and 4:20 pm to 8:20 pm every day. Also, the eleven auspicious offerings with Arati will be made to Devi thrice a day, at 7:40 am, 12:40 am, and 7:40 pm. Likewise, the special offerings are made on Purnima and during Navaratri. 

Sadhguru said, “Those who earn the grace of Linga Bhairavi do not have to live in concern or fear of life or death, of poverty, or of failure. All that human beings consider as well-being will be theirs, if only they earn the grace of Bhairavi.”
