षड्वक्त्रं द्वादशभुजं द्विपादं सुमनोहरम्।।

कुमारः सुकुमाराणां निर्दर्शनमभूत्क्षणात्।।

was radiant and powerful like a thousand Suns,
assumed the form of a small boy having six faces,
twelve hands, two feet, which is very beautiful
and captivating the mind, and which grows the
longevity and auspicious of all the worlds.
Lord Subramanya established the 6 Enlightenment ecosystems called the ‘Aaru Padai Veedu’. Through these 6 Enlightenment Ecosystems he gave the Superconscious breakthrough to whole humanity.

Tiruttani is the ecosystem where Lord Subramanya settled down from his ferocious state into his blissful state after destroying the demon king Surapadma. It is here that Subramanya himself performed the Shiva Puja to offer gratitude to Paramashiva for gracing victory in the war
Swamimalai is the ecosystem where Paramashiva asked Subramanya if knew the meaning of the primordial Pranava OM. Lord Muruga said that he knew the meaning of OM and can expound it to the latter only if he can accept him as guru and listen to the exposition as a devoted disciple. As Paramashiva acceded to the request of Lord Muruga and heard the exposition of OM as a disciple. Subramanya then received the name as Swaminatha Swamy.
Pazhamudircholai is the ecosystem where Lord Subramanya playfully tested the devotion of his ardent devotee Avvaiyar to show the world the greatness of His devotees bhakti towards Him.
Thiruparankundram is the ecosystem where Lord Subramanya came after destroying and liberating the demon king Surapadman. This is also the place where Lord Indra gave his daughter Deivayanai in marriage to Subramanya as a gratitude to him to destroy the Demon.
Thiruchendur is the ecosystem where Lord Subramanya destroyed the demon king Surapadman after a 6 day long battle. At the end of the battle due to the compassion of Subramanya, turned Surapadma as a peacock which is his vahana and as a cock in his flag.
Birth of Sri Ananda Subramanya
Tortured by the demon Tarakasura, all the went to Brahma -the creator and aired their grievance to Him.
Brahma said, “But, my children! Since Tarakasura has pleased me and got my grace through intense penance, I can not help the situation. Only a son born to Paramashiva can solve your problem. So go, do the needful to please Paramashiva.”
All the Devas headed by Indra; the King of all Devas All the Devas headed by Indra; the King of all Devaswent to Kailasa to appeal to Paramashiva. To theirdismay Paramashiva was absorbed in Samadhi.Nobody dared to disturb the Samadhi of LordParamashiva. Seeing the plight of Devas, Devi Parvati – thecompassionate Mother of the Universe agreed to goin for deep penance to attract the attention ofParamashiva . Manmatha, the god of love decided togo in for a suicidal mission by disturbingParamashiva’s Samadhi by trying to create fantasyin Paramashiva’s bio-memory.
As planned, Manmatha shot his arrow of fantasy onAs planned, Manmatha shot his arrow of fantasy onParamashiva. Paramashiva came out of His Samadhi andopened his third eye when the arrow of fantasy touched Him.Sparkling fire of Shiva Jyoti – the supernal Effulgence of Paramashiva – started coming from Paramashiva ’s third eye.No one was able to bear the intensity of that. Immediately notonly the fantasy was burnt away by that Shiva Jyoti, but also the Manmatha’s body was burnt into ashes. That is whyManmatha is called Ananga- the bodiless.
The sparks of Shiva Jyoti fell into the mouth of Agni, whobeing unable to bear it threw it onto river Ganga. Devi Gangawas also unable to bear it and she threw it on to a reed forest-Shara Vana. The sparks fell on to six lotuses on a pond in theShara Vana. The sparks at once became six Divine babies.The Krithika damsels who represent the six stars of theKrithika constellation nursed those babies.
Sri Ananda Subramanya the Divine warrior
When Devi Parvati came, she gathered those babies, and the child became a six-headed God. This
Divine child is Skanda. Since He was nursed by Krithika damsels, He is called Karthikeya. Since He has six faces, He is called Shanmukha. Since He is born out of the Sara Vana, he is called Saravanabhava. In Southern part of Bharata Desha He is fondly called as Lord Muruga. Muruga in Tamil means the gracefully
Paramashiva manifested Himself as Lord Subramanya to celebrate His own existence Subramanya is the completion of Paramashiva in all His glory, power, auspiciousness and thyaga.
