"Shiva is also called Bhairava because he is the cause of crying out from fear of remaining in the cycle of suffering, and from that longing cry he becomes manifest in the radiant domain of the heart, bestowing absence of fear for those who are terrified; and because he is the Lord of those who delight in his awesome roar, signifying the death of Death! Being the Master of that flock of excellent Yogins who tire of fear and seek release, he is Bhairava—the Supreme, whose form is Consciousness. As the author of nourishment, he extends his Power throughout the universe!"


~ Kṣemarāja, commentary on the Vijñāna-bhairava-tantra (transl. Christopher Hareesh Wallis)
