A voluntary body called LDSFT is making an attempt to restart the worship of Bhairavar at Sri Kapali Temple, Mylapore.
Dr.R. Subramanian of LDSFT which works out of Mylapore says that a proverb in Tamil says worshipping Bhairavar gives instant relief and that Bhairavar worship removes hardships.
He says that Bhairavar is seen as the one who provides security in Shiva temples and he has the dog as the vahanam
He says that his group is guiding the temple management to light Iluppa oil lamps at the Bhairavar sannadhi.
A small function is being arranged to initiate this programme on Ratha Sapthami Day, Sunday 17 February 6.01 p.m. onwards at Bhairavar sannadhi, inside the Kapaleeswarar Sannadhi of Kapali temple, Mylapore.
All are invited to attend and light a lamp.
