Various gods and goddesses are there in Hindu religion, but Batook Bhairav is known to get pleased soon and gives blessing. There is the description of 64 Bhairavas in Rudrayamal-Tantra. In Tantra, it is said that Bhairav was born from lord Shiva. Scholars say that Bhairav has been called as ‘Rudra’ also.
Batook Bhairav is of white complexion like ‘Sphatik-stone’, has earrings in both ears, three eyes, decorated with precious stones and red flower garlands. God Batook Bhairav has divine expression on his face and keeps weapons in his arms.
We get the description of origin of Batook Bhairav in the Katli-Khand of Shakti-sangam-Tantra. As per this, in ancient times a demon named ‘Apaad’ was there. With hard ‘tapasya’, he got the boon that he could be killed only by a boy of five years of age, and no other human being or animal can kill him. After getting this boon, he started spreading his terror in all three dimensions like on Earth, ocean and in sky. Even any god and goddess could not kill him. All the gods and goddesses assembled at one place to get freedom from his terror. But they were not in position to kill due to the boon, which the demon had got. When the gods and goddesses were busy in discussions, suddenly from the bodies of all the couple gods and goddesses a divine ray came out from each couple of god and goddess and that light turned into a five-year old boy. The divine rays gave birth to various five year old boys. The ray continued to get longer and longer and on its pick the ray turned into a five year old boy of white complexion. All these just born babies were known as ‘Batooks’. But the’ Batook’ of white complexion killed the demon Apaad and freed the gods and goddesses from his terror. After this incident, the Apaad-killer ‘Batook’ was known as Apaad-uddhharak Batook Bhairav.
