This is the recording of our Vedic Astrology Club call which occurred on Saturday April 5, 2014. Thank you to all the participants and to Rani and Bhairavi, our guest speakers.

Muruga and Six Temples in Tamil Nadu

Call Recording: Muruga and Other Discussion

Symbolism Associated with Muruga( Healer/Warrior Archetype Who Rules Mars):

Vel, or shakti /spear / lance, is his most powerful weapon. Made by Parvati and given to him to defeat the Asura Soorapadman in battle. The Vel embodies Parvati’s energy and power.

Discus: symbolizes his knowledge of truth

Mace: represents his strength

Javelin: symbolizes his far reaching protection

Bow: represents his ability to overcome all ills

Peacock: His vehicle, signifies Eternal Light, Om, represents the destruction of ego, and symbolizes mastery over space, time, and death

Rooster: Wards off all evil and Negativity, signifies Infinite sound, and adorns his flag.

There is a very powerful debt-busting  mantra for Muruga to dissolve all kinds of debts (personal, credit card, IRS, even the national debt):

Om Sa Ra Va Na Ba Va Ya Ru Na Vee Mo Kshanaya Murugaya Skandaya Swaha

If you recite this mantra 1008 x’s/ day for 40 days, it can set in motion things that will help clear up debts! It is also very beneficial to light a candle or ghee lamp before a picture, or even better yet, a statue or yantra of Muruga, to burn Mars (Tues.) Incense from AstroVed.com, offer flowers, and a small fruit (even a raisin) or nut. If using a statue or yantra, you can also use a red juice for abishekam such as cranberry juice, per Dr. Pillai.

A Gayathri Mantra for Muruga

Om Karthikeyaya Vidh Mahe
Shakti Hastaya Dhi Mahi Tanna Skanda Prachodayat
