Kartikeya’s Leelas

Never before had the cosmos beheld such a child! With his exquisite features and broad shoulders, exuding valour, strength and the radiance of Agni and Surya, he was Muruga: the epitome of male beauty. Mother Earth cradled the infant in her lap as Sage Vishwamitra performed the Jatakarma rites for the newborn and named him Guha: the secret-born, who took birth in the solitude of the forest of reeds. In his turn, the baby raised his hands in blessing over the sage, bestowing on him the totality of Vedic knowledge and granting him the title of Brahmarishi.

Through Goddess Sarasvati’s grace, the Dhanurveda assumed tangible form and showered the infant with astras and shastras, making the child immune to defeat – a mahayogabalanvitah , he of great might. With dance and song, Vedic chants and paeans of praise, the relieved devas welcomed the birth of their champion and lavished on him gifts of flowers, fruits, exotic toys, animals, birds and the treasures of the earth and oceans.

The six infants grew miraculously, endued with great energy, and were up and about six days after their birth.
