Kartikeya also known as Murugan, Skanda, Kumaran, Kumara Swami and Subramaniya, is the Hindu god of war. He is the Commander-in-Chief of the army of the devas and the son of lord shiva and Goddess Parvati . He was also known as Mahasena and the Kadamba dynasty worshiped him by this name.
The several names of Murugan of Tamil origin would include the following, Seyon, Senthil, Velan, Kumaran (“Prince,child,Young one”), Svaminatha (“Smart,Clever”), Saravana, Arumugam or Shanmuga (“having six faces”),Dandapani (“God with a club”), Guhan or Guruguha (“Cave-Dweller”), Subrahmanya, Kartikeya and Skanda “Attacker”.
The AtharvaVeda calls Kumara Agnibhu because he is form of Agni,who held him in his hands when Kumara was born. The Shatapatha Brahmana refers to him as the son of Rudra and the six faces of Rudra. The Taittiriya Aranyaka contains the Gayatri Mantra for Shanmukha. The Chandogya upanishad refers to Skanda as the “Way that leads to wisdom”. Baudhayana’s Dharmasutra calls Skanda Mahasena “Having a Great Army” and Subrahmanya “Beloved of Brahmins”. The Aranyaparvan (first section of the third book) of the Mahabharata relates the legend of Kartikeya Skanda in considerable detail. The Skanda Purana is devoted to the narrative of Kartikeya.The Upanishads also constantly make a reference to a Supreme Being called Guha,The indweller.
Kartikeya symbols are based on the weapons- Vel, the Divine Spear or Lance that he carries and his mount the Peacock. He is sometimes depicted with many weapons including: A sword, a javelin, a mace, a discus and a bow although more usually he is depicted wielding a sakti or spear. This symbolizes his purification of human ills. His javelin is used to symbolize his far reaching protection, his discus symbolizes his knowledge of the truth,his mace represents his strength and his bow shows his ability to defeat all ills. His peacock mount symbolizes his destruction of the ego.
