Sri Subramaniya is the son of Shiva and Parvati. Other common names of Sri Subramaniya are Karthikeya, Muruga, Kumara, Skandha, Shanmuga and Guha. Created out of six sparks from the third eye of Lord Shiva, for the special purpose of destroying the demon Soorapadma. The Vel (spear) is His divine weapon and is regarded as the source of all knowledge and as the dispeller of ignorance. According to the legend, Subramaniya explained the esoteric significance of “OM”, the Pranava Mantra, to His father, Lord Shiva.
In Hinduism, a deity, often referred to as a god or goddess, represents a divine power or principle. Hindus have a wide range of deities, each with their own unique stories, attributes, and significance. They are revered, celebrated, and worshipped in various forms and manifestations.
Hinduism encompasses a vast pantheon with millions of deities. However, most of these are regional or local manifestations of a smaller number of major deities. The Holy Trinity or "Trimurti" of Brahma (the creator), Vishnu (the preserver), and Shiva (the destroyer) is central to many traditions within Hinduism.
Start by learning the stories, attributes, and significance associated with that deity. Engage in temple activities, attend lectures or discourses, or consult sacred scriptures. Open-minded exploration and genuine curiosity are key.
