Education, which cannot give peace to the soul or cannot give the knowledge of the Self and the inner satisfaction, is not education. Education, which cannot wipe the tears of others, known or unknown, is not education. Education is understanding the situation - leading the life that can make the life, the Life Divine, where the ultimate goal of the life is the God-Realisation.

During 2012, the Sun, Earth and Karthigai star, will be in alignment resulting in more of the grace light entering the Earth plane. Thereafter, it is predicted that the Karthigai - Lord Murugan energy will be responsible for the transformation of the planet and of the genetic evolution of the human species into Gods and Goddesses status. This energy will allow humans to return to their original blueprint. The most important thing to remember about these new energies is to stay conscious and match our frequency to receieve it through proper worships, rituals, yoga and mystical knowledge according to great siddha masters.

The Siddhas were scientists, particularly in their investigations into chemistry, astronomy, plants, human anatomy and physiology. They applied their extraordinary powers, developed through intensive yogis practices, to research these areas on atomic and universal levels without the use of sophisticated equipment. In the long linege of Siddhas, one does not know when they came into earth's existance. Whether they still exist or are they Ascended masters teaching humanity the various sciences and philosophy, will perhaps, be never known.

In the teachings of the Siddhas the human body is a temple of God. Man is a miniature representation of Paramatma or Supreme Intelligence. The purpose of life is to realize God.To manifest that realization in all planes of existence.

Using special salts as well as herbal formulae the Siddhas developed the unique science of rejuvenation, known as "kaya kalpa", which allowed them to prolong their lives until the long term effects of Kriya Kundalini Pranayama and similar yogic practices could complete the process of transformation, bringing about physical immortality.

Siddhas followed the ancient Guru- disciple apprenticeship method. They revealed their secrets to those students whom they felt could be trusted not to misuse the science. The science of Kaya kalpa was limited to those great sages. who were prepared for the uplifting of humanity. Ayurveda came much later as discipline.

The Siddhas had vast knowledge of human anatomy. Their single-minded concentration was unique. It was was achieved with perfection. Their literature on medicine was extensive. The Siddhas were a close-knit community and preferred to preserve their knowledge. They reduced this knowledge to codes and symbols and their literature was steeped in mysticism. Only a Siddha can decode the writings of a Siddha. A beginner could not gain any appreciable knowledge without the Siddha accepting him as a student.

Siddhas such as Thirumoolar, Agastyar, Boganathar, and many more had realized their capacity for experiencing and manifesting the Divine. This was not only limited to the spiritual plane of existence. The Cosmic Spirit would descend into the more lower and gross planes of consciousness, the intellectual, mental, and physical bodies. This for us is a limiting thought as our yogic parasites are not as intense as the Siddha. With progressive surrender of their being , their ego and their very lives the Divine would indeed transform them. With intense practices of various Kriyas, hatha and bhakti yoga, meditation, mantras and Kriya Kundalini Pranayama they merged with the Cosmic Spirit . This was race against time as the natural breakdown of cells, catabolism, had to be reversed to anabolism to prolong the extent of their age. They had to complete the Divine transformation. With Kriya Kundalini yoga and using specific herbal and mineral salts they were able to prolong their youth for the Ultimate transformation.

The Universe was created out of a Cosmic Thought . No civilization be it the Inca, Atlantis or Egyptian had such a precise knowledge as the Siddhas. They were proficient in the science of longevity or deathless state, alchemy, medicine and physics.

Lord Hanuman's Birthday is on 28th Dec 2016

View Image

Birthday of the Gods and Goddesses are important as the stars resided by the particular deity is close to the Earth plane on that day and it provides you with an opportunity to establish a heart connection with the deity. Lord Hanuman is the eleventh Rudra or the divine incarnation of Lord Shiva who symbolizes strength and loyalty. Lord Hanumans divine power also provides you with courage and inner peace. The Monkey Faced God helps protect you from both foreseen as well as the unforeseen dangers. Curses and 'evil eyes' are no match for him. His blessings will protect you in all of your endeavors. In India he is considered to be a 'Guardian Deity'.

He is the epitome of devotion and dedication. The devotees of Lord Rama start their prayers by first offering their salutations to Lord Hanuman. This was a unique status he acquired purely based on his unparalleled devotion and dedication to Lord Ram.

He was born on Moola Nakshatra, on the Ammavasai (New Moon) day in Margazhi month (December 15 - January 15). This day represents one of the most powerful days to attain Lord Hanuman's blessings and bring positive changes into your life. He has the power to change your destiny and remove your karma. Praying and offering ritual to him directly, indirectly influences Saturn to stop influencing you!

One who is devoted and constantly prays to Hanuman gets his many blessings covering the material and spiritual, of strength, intelligence, skillful speech, good name and fame, courage, protection, good health, longevity, and energy.

Hanuman's Guru
As he grew up, Hanuman sought to educate himself and for this purpose he chose Surya the sun god as his guru saying: "You see everything there is to see in the universe and you know everything there is to know. Please accept me as your pupil." Surya hesitated. "I don't have the time," he said. "During the day I ride across the sky, and at night I am too tired to do anything."

"Then teach me as you ride across the sky during the day. I will fly in front of your chariot, facing you from dawn to dusk." Impressed by Hanuman's zeal and determination, Surya accepted him as his pupil. Thus Hanuman flew before the chariot of the sun god, withstanding the awesome glare, until he became well versed in the four books of knowledge, the six systems of philosophies, the sixty-four arts or kalaigal and the one hundred and eight occult mysteries of the Tantras.

Hanuman's Yogic Mastery
If yoga is the ability to control one's mind then Hanuman is the quintessential yogi having a perfect mastery over his senses, achieved through a disciplined lifestyle tempered by the twin streams of celibacy and selfless devotion (bhakti). In fact, Hanuman is the ideal Brahmachari (one who follows the path of Brahma), if ever there was one. He is also a perfect karma yogi since he performs his actions with detachment, acting as an instrument of destiny rather than being impelled by any selfish motive.

Hanuman is the 1st Teacher for Pranayama and Surya Namaskaram Practices
Pranayama is the ability to control one's breath so that the inhalation and exhalation of air is rhythmic. Vayu, the god of air and wind, first taught pranayama to his son Hanuman, who in turn taught it to mankind.
The Surya Namaskaram (salutation to the sun) too, was devised by Hanuman as a greeting for his teacher Surya.

Hanuman's Ashtama Siddhi Mastery
Tantra represents the occult science of Hinduism. With the aid of mantras and yantras TantricYogis (practitioners of Tantra) channelise the powers of the cosmos for the advantage of humanity. Tantric Yogis believe that Hanuman is the most accomplished of their lot having achieved the much-sought after Ashtama Siddhi (eight occult powers):

1). Anima - The ability to reduce his size.
2). Mahima - Ability to increase his size.
3). Laghima - The ability to become weightless.
4). Garima - Ability to increase weight.
5). Prapti - The ability to travel anywhere and acquire anything.
6). Parakamya - Irresistible will power.
7). Vastiva - Mastery over all creatures.
8). Isitva - Ability to become god like with the power to create and destroy.

The Ramayana abounds with tales illustrating Hanuman's mastery over each of these siddhas (occult powers). Not surprisingly, he is reverently deified as a Mahsiddha.

The legend behind Hanuman’s immortality
According to the epic Ramayana, Lord Hanuman was sent to Sri Lanka to know the state of Mother Sita to assure her that Lord Rama will soon come over to save her. Hanuman reached Sri Lanka and saw a very worried Mother Sita sitting in a garden. He appeared before Mother Sita and tried to convince her bringing all the details of her life with Rama. But, Sita took him as Ravana in disguise and did not believe her words until he gave her the ring of Sri Rama. She became overwhelmed with joy and memories of Lord Rama on seeing the ring. Mother Sita felt sorry for suspecting Hanuman. She at once called him Maruti and blessed Hanuman that he will be immortal as long as the world exists. It is believed that Hanuman the power of humility is still around us.

One who is devoted and constantly prays to Hanuman gets his many blessings covering the material and spiritual, of strength, intelligence, skillful speech, good name and fame, courage, protection, good health, longevity, and energy.

Lord Hanuman Controls Saturn
Hanuman’s powers are so great that even Saturn fears to influence him and his devotees. In fact those who surrender at Lord Hanuman's feet will never be troubled by any of the 9 planets. He is considered the greatest of the greatest heroes as well as the servant of servants. He is totally selfless and without his own agenda. His power is so great that he controls Saturn with his tail!

Recite any of the manthras below for 108 times or more to connect with Hanuman and receive His special blessings.
Hmmm/Om Hanumantaye Namaha

Hmmm/Om Anjanayaye Namaha
Hmmm/Om Shree Maruthi Hanumantaye Nammaha

Legends have it that during the warfare of Ramayana, the younger brother of Lord Rama, Lakshman, was injured seriously and was suffering for life. To save his life, Lord Rama ordered Lord Hanuman to bring the medicine from Sanjeevi Hills (a hill well known for its medicinal quality) which could heal the wound. Lord Hanuman started his journey towards Sanjeevi at once. On his way to the hills, Lord Saturn appeared in front of Hanuman claiming that Lakshmana would have to experience the effect of Saturn transit at this particular time. He also stopped Hanuman from continuing his journey to the hills. Hanuman on hearing the reason put forth by Saturn tried explaining him the importance of Lakshmana's presence in the combat.

Neither Saturn was ready to lend his ears to Lord Hanuman's explanations; nor Hanuman was not able to control his rage in turn. This is when Lord Hanuman took full control of Saturn's power by stepping onto Saturn under his mighty feet. This incident stands proof enough to show that lord Hanuman was so powerful that he could control even the most fierce Saturn!

There are only 2 Gods with the power to control the 9 planets, and especially the influence of Saturn one is Kala Bhairava and the other is Lord Hanuman.

Hanuman's Bhakti Yoga
Once Sita gave Hanuman a necklace of pearls. After a while, the residents of the city observed him breaking the necklace and inspecting each pearl minutely. Intrigued they asked him the reason. "I am looking for Rama and Sita," replied Hanuman. Laughing at his apparent naivety the spectators pointed out to him that the royal couple was at the moment seated on the imperial throne. "But Rama and Sita are everywhere, including my heart" wondered aloud the true bhakta. Not understanding the depth of his devotion, they further teased him: "So Rama and Sita live in your heart, can you show them to us?" Unhesitatingly, Hanuman stood up and with his sharp talons tore open his chest. There, within his throbbing heart, the astonished audience were taken aback to find enshrined an image of Rama and Sita. Never again did anyone make fun of Hanuman's devotion.

Hanuman has two forms, namely, Hanuman the servitor and Hanuman the courageous one. The servitor form is the one in which Hanuman stands in front of Rama with His hands folded in obeisance, His tail resting on the ground. The stance of Hanuman as the courageous one is that of an energetic warrior ready for battle. His tail is upright and His right hand is turned towards His head. Sometimes even a demon or a malefic such as Saturn affliction is depicted as being crushed under His feet . To overcome problems of possession, black magic, etc. Hanuman is worshipped in the courageous form.

Saturn Transit effect For 12 Rasis - Sani Payerchi from 26th January 2017 till 24th January 2020

Image result for lord saneeswara images

Planets play the roles of God, Guru and Judge
God - Sun (Surya) : God has been worshipped, because He is the life-giver, energy-provider, sustainer of all beings on the planet earth, remover of darkness of the soul and mind and provider of inner light and happiness. In Tantric Astrology Sun symbolizes God. The Sun-God, that pervades the whole Universe, is presented for us, the Earthlings, as the Sun-god that shines its benevolence upon us, by giving us days and nights, seasons, rain and shines and also the immense essential heat energy to make the life on Earth possible. An exalted Sun well placed in the horoscope with other favourable factors removes darkness.

Guru - Jupiter (Guru) : The Guru is worshipped, as he provides us with the knowledge, wisdom to do good deeds and thus be closer to God. He is considered second only to God. He is the messenger between God and man. Jupiter is the great guru or the second Sun. The guru shows us the right path.

Judge - Saturn (Sani) : The Judge weighs our deeds and misdeeds, and gives judgment in accordance with our Karma. He is symbolized by the woman with a blindfold in her eyes and a balance in one hand and a sword in the other. If our good deeds outweigh our bad, the sword does not fall on us, but if bad deeds outweigh our good, then we are punished. Saturn is given this great distinction, because he carries out the law of Karma.

Significance of Saturn Transit
Saturn is the slowest moving planet. It takes 30 years for him to complete one cycle of his revolution through the 12 zodiacs. He spends roughly about 2 ½ years in each sign.

Saturn’s transit is a major astrological event and it is keenly watched and analysed by astrologers all over the world. This year Saturn moves into Sagitarrius Moon Sign Dhanusu) on Jan 26, 2017 as per Thiru Kanidha Panchangam. 

While analyzing transit of Saturn, we say that he is good in 3rd, 6th and 11th Houses from natal Moon and in remaining places he is adverse. These adverse placements are further classified as follows and constitute positions which are generally considered as negative placements 
  • 12th,1st (Janma) and 2nd Houses constitute ‘Sade Sathi’ – Makaram (Capricon),
  •  Dhanusu (Saggitarius) and Vrichukam (Scorpio)
  • 4th House – Ardaastama Shani /Daiyya - Kanni (Virgo)
  • 5th House – Panchama Shani – Simmam (Leo)
  • 8th House – Astama Shani – Taurus (Rishabam)
There is no reason to fear Saturn and an average lethargic type may, of course, experience Saturn as a hard task-master. And for someone Saturn may feel demanding – and slow with its rewards. But there will be rewards, eventually. They may be slow in coming, because Saturn first wants to test you to be sure that you are in earnest, that you will not revert back to your old lazy tricks. You have to have deeper motives, a true desire to grow even when there are no carrots dangling in front of you. You have to show Saturn that you are doing something for doing’s sake, not because you are expecting Saturn to pat you on your back.

The predictions given below for each Rashi is general in nature. Do not be afraid if Saturn is adversely placed for your Rashi. Please check your Dasha & Bhukti currently operating and other planetary movements during the period. If the Dasha & Bhukti is good, many adverse predictions may not happen or will be mitigated. If you have further doubts please consult your family astrologer.

Lord Sani
According to Hindu mythology Shani (Saturn) is the son of Surya the Sun God and grand son of Sage Kashyapa and Aditi. A Demi God, Shani was born to Lord Sun and Chaaya (illusory wife). Lord Yama (Yama-Dharmaraja) and Goddess Yamuna (River Goddess) are His siblings born to Surya and His wife Sanjna Devi. Tapathi (River Goddess) is his sister.

Lord Shani is worshipped and adored in Hindu religion, by people from all walks of life and has also become a point of contention for their grief and suffering. More than anything else we find millions of people visiting Navagraha temples, rather out of scare, performing austerities to appease Lord Shani. He is considered as a personification of restrictions, adversities and limitations. Regarded as the most dreaded planet for obstruction, distress and calamity, people believe that if there is one, planet who can make a king out of a pauper and vice versa, it is Shani. He is more misunderstood and also more confusing entity in our mundane existence.

When we look at the celestial role of Lord Shani, He is a Dandanaadhikari with a task of dispensation of justice according to one’s Karma phala and punishing the evil doers. It is more or less like a Home portfolio and Lord Shani is absolutely unbiased in this regard. Perhaps, Lord Shani is the best teacher in life. There is an ancient maxim "Dandam Dasa Gunam Bhaveth". When all the methods of mending a person are exhausted like Sama, Dana, Bedha, and the person doesn't heed and keeps on doing evils, as a last resort the Nature takes its own course and invokes the Dandam (Stick) in the form of Lord Shani (Saturn). No doubt, He is a task master. He is an agent of Karma and an administrator of Karmic law. He is only discharging the role given to him. The best way to get discharged from Karma is to encounter it and Lord Shani is the best agent to help us in this regard. Saturn reminds that in the Universal Karmic law everyone has to pay for their misdeeds.

Saturn rules over food grains, agriculture, engineering, metals (iron), mines (coal), blue/black colour, hills, forests, valleys, sesame seeds, Shami tree, Sisira Ruthu, Vaata tattva (windy in nature), physical disability, knees, ankles, thighs and muscles etc. Saturn will be strong during night time, Dakshinayana, and Krishna paksha (dark half) of the month and on Saturday. His direction is towards west. Above list is only indicative but not exhaustive.

Tantric way to appease this planets for their blessing
Saturn - Learn to be humble, work hard and serve others as a duty, without expecting nothing in return. Practice concentration, austerities, fasting and seclusion for spiritual strengthening. Serve the sick, afflicted and poor people. Visit to your favourite temple every week and spend at least 1 hour in the temple.
Chant Hmmm Saniswaraya Pothri / Shram for 108 times every Saturday to connect Lord Saniswaran and receive His Blessing

Karthigai Festival is on 12th December in 2016

Thirukarthigai/Karthigai Deepam comes on the tamil month Karthigai (mid November - mid December) on Pournami day (Full moon day). Throughout the month lamps are lit in the front of the house in the evening. On the Thirukarthigai / Karthigai Deepam day the whole house is decorated with the oil lamps. Thiruvannamalai is famous for Karthigai Deepam. Karthigai is on 12th December in 2016.

Story behind Karthigai

Once Brahma and Vishnu due to the ego started arguing with each other " who is the greatest". Both claimed to be the greatest, instead of doing their duty. At that time the God Shiva appeared in the form of fire and told them whoever finds the top or bottom of the fire is the greatest. Brahma took the form of Annam (a bird) and tried to find the top of the frle pillar. Vishnu took the form of Varaha( giant pig) and tried to see the bottom of the pillar. As the God has no limit in his size or power, both of them could not see either top or bottom of the fire. When their ego went down and they prayed the God, He appeared before them. The day in which the God appeared as a pillar of fire is Thirukarthigai / Karthigai Deepam. Lord Shiva appeared as a hill (Arunachala Hill) at Tiruvannamalai in Tamil Nadu. Indeed, the very names `Tiruvannamalai' and `Arunachala' translate as `holy fire hill.' The Shivalinga in the temple here is the agni linga. The tiny lamps lit during the Karthigai festival (Karthigai Deepam) are believed to be the miniature replicas of the fire linga.


On this day, with specific astrological configuration, a special light splashes the entire earth plane with a karma dissolving light. Only the sages and evolved being can see this light as it is of a different frequency than what the human eye can detect. To replicate this spiritual happening a huge lamp is lit on the top of the mountain with several thousands of gallons of oil, hand carried by pilgrims coming from all over India. This viradham indicates the non measurable infiniteness of the God and shows that the God is the light that will drive away our ignorance. Lamps are lit in the houses to pray His "Jyothi Swarupam".

Another popular legend is that the day is the birthday of Lord Muruga.
Lord Muruga, also known as Skanda, Subrahamaniya and Kartik, was born as six different babies to Lord Shiva. The six babies were looked after by the Six Karthigai stars and the six children were later joined to a single force by Goddess Parvati.

Krittika is the six stars or the Pleiades cluster. As Muruga was born as six different babies and later joined into one He is popularly known as Aarumugan in Tamil culture.

The Ritual
On Thirukarthigai, clean your houses and draw kolam (rangoli) in the front of the house. Then place the lamp on it during Sun set. Before that, the lamps (Agal) must be placed in the pooja and lighted. After deeparathana is done yo can put the lamps in different places in the house. People of Tamil Nadu celebrate Karthigai Deepam for three days. Some people celebrate it, extending from the Deepavali festival. The number of lamps is doubled every day from the day of Diwali and they end up with numerous lamps on the day of Karthigai Deepam.

Guidelines for lighting lamp

· Ghee/ Sesame Oil or a mixture of oil and ghee can be used to light the lamp.

· Lamp is always a good omen – if someone gifts you a lamp, accept it whole-heartedly. If the lamp flickers, it is an auspicious sign.

· Always smear the lamp with vermillion and sandal powder.

· Offer flowers to the lamp.

Arunachala Temple at Thiruvanamalai

Don’ts for lighting lamp

· Never place and light a lamp in the south direction. It will bring inauspicious events...

· After lighting the lamp don’t rub the excess oil on your hair; (it will make you loose your wealth) general belief. Also rubbing in your own dress is also not good. So keep a piece of cloth in your pooja room and rub the excess oil in it.

· Never keep any lamp directly on the kolam. Always keep it on a plate ( can be brass, silver not steel).

· If you like keep a few grains of raw rice below the lamp - this is necessary only when you do vilakku poojai etc & not necessary every day.

· Do not use Groundnut Oil.

Let the light of Karthigai Deepam illuminate the darkness of ignorance and unhappiness and bring in enlightenment to our lives with joy and prosperity to start the much awaited Golden Age.

IKS Spiritual Retreat to Remove Guru Curse & Reactivate Guru Chakra

Guru Chakra Activation Spitlritual Retreat - June 2017 

The scripture says that Mantra is born of Guru, Gods and Goddesses of Mantra, so that the Guru is in the position of Father’s father to all Gods and Goddesses. So if you want the blessings of your Ishta deivam or even Kuladeivam for health, wealth, peace and prosperity then you should access your Guru's blessing first. But unfortunately many people bark up the wrong tree to succeed in life since they dont know their personalized Guru and how to find. Do you know that you cant find your Guru by yourself since you are in ignorance/sleeping state but only enlightened/awaken Guru can find you and choose to enlighten you. You are in the sleeping state when you are in ignorance, then how you can find? the most you can do only dream about guru when you are in sleeping state but cant find guru. There is one easiest way to connect guru according to Siddha teaching which is guru chakra temples.

We have a great news for IKS students and followers. IKS Academy will organize another great spiritual retreat to South India to re-connect with your Guru, Para Guru, Parat Param Guru, Athma Guru and other higher Gurus by visiting guru chakra invocation temples which is only known to Siddha lineage and should always kept in secret. We will be going to nine great temples where the significant of the temples only known to Siddha masters and their students.

Highlights of the spiritual retreat :

- Three most important Shiva temple to visit to melt your guru's curse and to reconnect your guru and we will be going there to activate our chakra which is related to guru.
- Vishnu temple to give knowledge, peace of mind through guru chakra and create secret path to moksha
- Universal Goddess temple to activate 3rd eye who is the direct disciple of God himself. Millions of Siddhas and Rishis were absorbed in Her body to give blessings and to disclose the secret wisdom of Universes
- Most important Kalabairava temple to initiate Guru consciousness
- Murugan temple to access Guru's domain
- Pradosham homam, abishegam and ritual at one of the most important Karma removal temple
- Annadhanam and Girivalam in Thiruvanamalai in Pournami window time
- Thirumoolar Siddhar Temple for moksha
- Nandikeswarar Siddhar Temple for peace through kill ego and attachment
- Agasthiar Siddhar Temple for wealth

and other temples...

Microcosm and Macrocosm are always in same order : In astrology Guru is known as Planet Jupiter and said Guru parvai kodi punyam( darshan of Guru can difuse any dosham/obstacles). Jupiter is a huge planet and has more mass than all the other planets combined. Jupiter is the primary cause for the entire Solar System to orbit the Barycenter. The Sun and all the planets actually orbit a central point of mass for the entire Solar System, known as the Barycenter.
Like wise in our life Guru is the centre of our life essentially but due to ignorance and ego we dont know the actual importance of Guru.

Siddha masters says human birth are the rarest birth which can be only attain after taking countless other lower births and accumulating mountain like merits in those lower births, but if you cant find your guru in this most precious human birth then this birth will be a waste.

There are no different between Guru, Mantras, Gods and goddesses. Guru is father, mother and Brahman. Guru, it is said, can save from the wrath of Lord Shiva, but in no way, can one be saved from the wrath of the Guru. 

Hmmm Guruve Pothri ...

Skanda Shasti Fasting's Importance - 31st Oct to 5th Nov 2016 ~ By Vijayakumar Alagappan

Sashti is the day the Lord Murugan defeated the demon Soorapadma and saved the Earth from his evils. When the devas couldn't tolerate the evil doings of this demon, they approached the younger son of Lord Shiva and Parvati. The kind Lord went on a war against Soorapadman. The war was waged for six days, at the end of which the Lord vanquished the asura. He threw his weapon at him and Soorapadman was split into two halves. One half became a peacock, which He took as His vaahana. The other became a cock and was transformed into his flag.

The devas, who were tormented by Soorapadman, rejoiced - they praised the Lord and prayed to him for six days. Devotees usually narrate the kanda sashti kavacham, during this period. Whoever fasts for these six days of Skanda Sashti and prays to Lord Murugan steadfastly, it is said that they would get the blessings of Lord Murugan. Those who are unable to fast for a whole day for a six-day duration, can eat just one meal during this period.

Lord Skanda / Murugan

Lord Murugan, celestial master of kundalini yoga, was born of God Siva's mind. His dynamic power awakens spiritual cognition to propel souls onward in their evolution to Siva's feet. Skanda is an ancient deity mentioned in stone inscriptions and shown on coins ( 1st cent. To 5th cent CE) . The story of Murugan / Skanda is found among others in the Mahabharatha, Siva Purana and is retold in Kalidasa's Kumara Sambhavam. Chandogya Upanishad identifies Skanda as Sanat Kumara. In Tamil, Arunagiri's Thiruppugazh, Nakkeerar's Thiru Murugaatrupadai, and scores of other literature praise the glory of Murugan in devotional poetry.

This legend narrates the story of  the birth of Skanda / Murugan.

Sati, the consort of Shiva immolated herself at the site of the Daksha Yagna, which was later destroyed by Shiva. Sati was reborn as Uma, or Parvati the daughter of the mountain king Himavaan (the Himalayas). Shiva withdrew himself from the universe and engaged himself in yogic meditation in the Himalayas.

In the meanwhile, the demon Surapadma ravaged the earth and tormented its beings. It was realized by the gods that only the son born of Shiva and Parvati could lead the gods to victory over Tarakaasuran, Surapadman and their demon companions. They plotted with Kaama, the lord of desire, to shoot a flower arrow at Shiva, as he sat in meditation, so as to make him fall in love with Parvati. When Kaama aimed his arrow at Shiva, he opened his third eye and burned him to ashes instantly. Upon hearing the pleas of Kama's wife Rati, he brought back Kama to life, in flesh and blood for her sake, and in a formless state for others.

His penance disturbed, Shiva fell in love with Parvathi. However, the sparks of the fiery seed of Shiva were unbearable; even the fire God Agni could not bear them; this fire was then transported by the river Ganga into the Sara Vana forest, where Sara Vana Bhava was born. He was raised by the six Kartika damsels (Pleiadean Stars). Parvati combined these six babies into one with six faces, ie. Shanmukha. Shanmukha, or Kartikeya the supreme general of the devas, led the army of the devas to victory against the demons. The six sites at which Kartikeya sojourned while leading his armies against Surapadman are Tiruttanikai, Swamimalai, Tiruvavinankudi (Palani), Pazhamudirsolai, Tirupparamkunram and Tiruchendur. All these sites have ancient temples glorified by the tamil poems of Tirumurugaatruppadai of the Sangam period (prior to the 3rd century CE).

The cosmic science of Lord Murugan's energy / the Magnetic Clouds of the Pleiadean (Karthigai) stars

In all of Earth's history, this is the most exciting time to be a human body. An incredible change is taking place. Our planet Earth orbits the Sun / Suryan once a year but our solar system as a whole also traverses an orbit in this section of the galaxy with a period of about 24,000 years. There is a electromagnetic cloud of grace light, around Karthigai star where the Sun is said to complete one orbit in the Karthigai Stars system every 24, 000 years.

During 2012, the Sun, Earth and Karthigai star, will be in alignment resulting in more of the grace light entering the Earth plane. Thereafter, it is predicted that the Karthigai - Lord Murugan energy will be responsible for the transformation of the planet and of the genetic evolution of the human species into Gods and Goddesses status.

When chanted Skanda Shasti Kavasam daily with concentration and devotion, the kavasam serves as a protective ‘armour’ for devotees and confers great spiritual and material benefits. This rare and valuable treasure helps one to be successful in our daily lives.

This energy will allow humans to return to their original blueprint. The most important thing to remember about these new energies is to stay conscious and match our frequency to receive it. Muruga energy is to remind us of who we really are like how He remind the Om mantra to His father Lord Shiva in Swamimalai.

According to siddhas the birth of Murugan symbolizes the rising of energy from the base of the spine to the pituitary gland, to awaken Gods and Goddesses conciousness. His energy will enable our strands of DNA to make the shift into the fifth dimension to prepare ourself into higher inteligence / 7th sense ( 7am Arivu) being status.

The energy of the Karthigai stars - Lord Murugan is of etheric and spiritual nature. The 10,500 years of darkness between the 2000 year periods of light afford incarnating Man repeatedly his spiritual evolution. As the majority of humans become forgetful of their Divine Source and purpose during these Earthly sojourns, the periods of Light serve a dual purpose. They represent a sorting-out process, gathering matured souls into the Light of the Spirit and affording the weaker, just maturing souls a stabilization period of respite and an opportunity for further spiritual growth. The individuals who could not or would not acknowledge Divine Love as the essence of their being during the l0,500 year period of incarnations are given another chance again.

How to do poojai at home during Shasti

Here is a simple method to perform Skanda Shasti Puja at home. You can do this Poojai on all six days of the Skanda Shasti Vratam or on the Soorasamharam day.

Poojai Items Needed

Small idol or picture of Ganesha

A vel or picture of Lord Subrahmanya

Sandal Paste, water, turmeric, kumkum, flowers and usual poojai items

After bath, clean the poojai area.

First pray to Lord Ganesha for removing all obstacles.

Now the main Poojai begins

First meditate on Lord Murugan – You can do this silently or by chanting Om vali devasena samedha Shri Subrahmanya Swaamine namaha dhyaayaamii

Now invoke Lord Murugan – Take the idol or picture or Vel and keep it near you or hold it in your hands. You can silently pray to Murugan or chant Om Vali devasena… swaamine namaha aavaahayaamii

Now you can place the idol in the appropriate place chosen by you in the puja area – you can chant – Om aasanam samarpayaamii

Now you can sprinkle some water – Om…namaha arghyam

Now you can pour some water on the feet or near the Vel – Om… namaha paadhyam

Sprinkle some water again – Om... namaha aachamaniyam

Now you can sprinkle rose water or usual water – Om… oupachaarika snaanam

Sprinkle some water again as final purification – Om...snaanaanandharam aachamaniyam

Now you can offer turmeric paste or if you have special dress for idol you can offer it –Om... vastraartham akshadaam

Now you can offer Sandal Paste to the Vel or idol – Om gandhaan dhaarayaami

Now you can do decorations with flowers or garlands – Om...gandhsyopari alankaaranaartham akshadaam

Now you can offer kum kum – Om...haridraa kumkumam

Finally, you can offer some flowers – Om...pushpaih poojayaami

Now you can light the lamp and chant Skanda shashti kavacham, Subrahmanya Bhujangam or read Skanda Purana or any tale related to Lord Muruga.

You can also perform archana after lighting the lamp or your usual method of daily puja with camphor and agarbathis.

If you have prepared any food (naivediyam) you can offer it to the lord and perform Arathi.
At the end of the Puja you can thank Lord Ganesha for helping in successfully conducting the pooja.

Skanda Shasti Vratham-Fasting
The most important of all the Vratams of Lord Murugan is the Skanda Shashthi Vratam. It is to be commenced on the Prathama Tithi (the day immediately following Deepavali) of the Sukla Paksham (bright fortnight) in the month of Aippasi (October-November). A complete fast should be observed and the devotee should engage himself solely in the Pujai of the Lord, in reading and learning of the glories of Lord Skanda, Bhajan, meditation, etc. If fasting for six days continuously is likely to prove too much of a strain, he may have one meal per day and fast completely on the last day, i.e. the Shashthi Day. This is the day to commemorate the victory of Lord Shanmukham over the Asuran king, Surapadman. Persons who observe this Vratam achieve success in all their undertakings and in the end attain Liberation.

 Observing Skanda Shasti fasting is one of the easiest but the most powerful techniques to attune yourself to Lord Murugan's frequency. Once when your frequency and His (Pleiadean Stars) frequency match you will start to enjoy His blessings to the extereme for your overall well being for both in material and spiritual dimension. May Lord Murugan bless all of you to regain your legacy as gods and Goddesses. Hmmm Saum Saravanabavaya ......

Made by numerous bells tied to your feet.
And I pray Lord Saravana Bhava,
To bless this poem on Sashti.

Come, come son in law of Indra,
Come darling of the lady of mountain,
Come my master who has six faces,
Come daily he who holds the Vel*,
And who applies the ash,
Come with speed, Oh Lord of Sira Mountain,
Come with speed, Of holder of the Vel.

Salutations and salutations to the great hero,

nibava sarahana nira, nira, nirena

(Some words are reproduced, because they are the interplay of the letters that make “Saravana Bhava” written in Tamil and have been added to make the verse musical. They may have hidden meaning, which this translator is not aware of).

Come, come friend who lives within me,
Come lord who spoiled the lives of Asuras,
Come with the wide open twelve graceful eyes,
Come with weapons and pasa and angusa in your twelve hands,
Come, Oh young lord, who rules over me.

Come Oh, Lord of Vel to protect me fast,

Let Aaim, Klim and Saum which reach to you,
The Saum with its brilliant light,
The Klim which is like the soul,
And Klim, Saum and the sweet sounding Aaim,

Stand and shine before me.

(Aaim, Klim and Saum form the part of the Bija manthra (seed invocation) that denotes Lord Skanda).

Come Oh, Six headed one,
With your brilliant light,
Come daily without fail, great Lord,
Who has attained the Kundalini,
And come with thine six faces with six crowns,
With holy ash applied on your forehead,
With your long eye brows,
And with your twelve eyes and coral like mouth.

(Kundalani is the thousand-petal lotus in the bottom of the brain. It is believed that on opening it, all knowledge will automatically be yours).

With decorations of nine gems in your forehead,
With pretty ear rings shining in your twelve ears,
With several ornaments and pendant shining.
In thine, handsome trunk with twelve arms,
And with the garland of nine gems inlaid with precious stones.

Daily in the morning and evening,
All those who clean themselves,
With religious fervor and read,
Thirty six times* a day

(* alternate meaning: mu = three, paththu (pattru) = slags (impurities) i.e. ANavam - kanmam - mAyAi (arrogance, karma, delusion), ur = extinguishing. So it means - we should chant Kandha shashti Kavacham without any desire or malams).

This Skanda Sashti Kavacham,
Which has been composed,
By the young Deva Rayan,
And meditate on that god with concentration,
And wear the sacred ash,
Will get the great blessings,
Of all the devas from all eight directions,
And the guardians of the eight directions.
All strangers would come and salute them,
The nine planets will become happy,
And shower their blessings,
They would shine in prettiness.
They would happily live on all days,
If they recite this Kavacham,
Which is equivalent to a Vel.

If seen as a way, this Kavacham would show the truth,
If seen of Ghosts by their eyes, they will get scared,
It would powder bad people,
And the good people would dance with joy,
And all their enemies will be exterminated
