To the One whose lotus feet are served king of the Devas, That merciful One who bears the moon on His forehead, Who wears a serpent as His sacred thread and is clad in the directions, And who is worshipped by Narada and other yogis; Obeisance to Kalabhairava, the Lord of city of Kashi. (1)  

To the One whose luster is like a million suns, That supreme Being who delivers us across the ocean of existence, The blue-throated, three-eyed One who grants all wishes, He of lotus-eyes and grave trident, who is the death of time itself; Obeisance to Kalabhairava, the Lord of city of Kashi. (2)  

To the Bearer of the spear, sword, noose and club, That primeval Cause, the black-bodied, imperishable prime Lord, The One free from all afflictions, the formidable Hero, To the Lord who loves the wonderful Tandava dance; Obeisance to Kalabhairava, the Lord of city of Kashi. (3)  

To the Bestower of enjoyment and liberation, He who is praised for His pleasant form and loves His devotees, That Lord of the entire world, who assumes myriad forms, And wears a waist band attached with golden bells; Obeisance to Kalabhairava, the Lord of city of Kashi. (4)  

To the Maintainer of the bridge of Dharma and the Destroyer of adharmic paths, That Lord who saves us from the binds of karma and brings shame of misdeeds, He whose body appears adorned because of the golden nooses He carries, Obeisance to Kalabhairava, the Lord of city of Kashi. (5)  

To Him who wears sandals studded with gems, That eternal One without a second, the Lord of our hearts, The stainless One, who destroys the fear of death, He of large teeth and fearful form, the Granter of liberation; Obeisance to Kalabhairava, the Lord of city of Kashi. (6)  

To Him whose loud laughter can tear asunder all born of the egg of Brahma, That fierce Ruler whose very sight is enough to destroy the web of sins, To the Granter of the eight siddhis, the One who wears a garland of skulls; Obeisance to Kalabhairava, the Lord of city of Kashi. (7)  

To the Commander of the hosts of spirits and the Bestower of great glory, That Lord, the Resident of Kashi, the Purifier of the world’s goods and evils, He who intimately knows the path of righteousness, The most ancient One, the Lord of the universe;Obeisance to Kalabhairava, the Lord of city of Kashi. (8)
