History of Vaikasi Visakam

Lord Muruga is the second son of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati. Lord Murugan born from Lord Siva’s third eye in the form of fierce fire sparkles. As the intensity of the fire was unbearable even for the Gods, the sparks of the fire were dunked into the river to cool down. That mighty river is called “Saravana Poigai”, which dispersed the spark into six different sparkles. Each spark then incarnated as a child, which was raised by the celestial maidens, known as “karthigai Pengal”. Goddess Parvati then unified all the children into one single male child, and thus Lord Muruga has twelve hands, six faces in him.
