The Guru Of His Own Father - Lord Senthilandavar

Author : Subramanya Swamy

The name Murugan is derived from the word "Murugu" meaning honey, beauty, fragrance and eternal youth. As the name indicates Murugan, God of love, beauty and power has been extending his charms on millions of people. The charm that originates from Lord Murugan unites all the people from different caste and class. During the Thaipoosam festival, people from all directions make their way, like rivers destined towards the ocean, all gather at Palani to worship the Lord of Hills, Sri Dhandayudhapani with devotion. The Murugan devotees can be easily identified with the white ash on their forehead which carries an eternal message.

Lord Murugan enlightens the whole world since he is the source of all knowledge. The god spread the light of knowledge throughout the universe since he emerged from Jyoti (the divine fame of light). He has also given saintly advice to his father Lord Shiva. In point to this Lord Shiva – the supreme power of the universe, knelt down and received the advice in all humility. Lord Muruga is also called as the embodiment of Veda and hence called as Vedha Mantra Swaroopa.

Skanda symbolizes power and valor. Soorapadman the demon, armed with the boon that no power on the earth even Lord Brahma, Vishnu or Shiva could harm or kill him. With such a boon terrorizing Devas and all the devotees, it became necessary to create a power more powerful than anything else in the world with the combined power of Tirmurthis. Thus, Lord Murugan unparalleled power in the whole universe came into being. His mother Parvathi gave him the powerful Sakthi Vel. Skanda's supreme power can be proved from the fact the he even imprisoned the creator, Lord Brahma for his lack of knowledge in Pranava Mantra.

Muruga represents the virtues of love and compassion. He is benevolent and generous. He is magnanimous and merciful and grants whatever his devotees aspire for. He even has excused Soorapadma who crossed the sword with him. Whenever his devotees are in distress he readily comes and give his helping hand and render his blessings to them. Just like he sought Valli's hand and helped her to attain her fulfillment in her life. He always goes to the true devotee rather than waiting for them to reach him.

As the Sulamangalam sister song "Muruga is the epitome of beauty and all the beauties on earth are converged on Murugan", he is a marvelous and majestic god. Lord Muruga is so elegant and enchanting that all the devotees wish to rest their eye there for ever.

"To see and admire the beauty of Lord of Thiruchengodu, even four thousand eyes are not enough", says Arunagirinathar in Kandhar Alamgaram. As one makes his last journey, walking through the dark corridors of death, Arunagirinathar prays for the grace, comfort and relief from the shoulders of Muruga. Let Lord Muruga's grace be showered on all devotees. He will always guides his devotees to the path of perfection and lead them in the right direction. The power of his Vel protect the human beings from all negative forces.
