Those interested in its version in Indian mythology may read on:
According to the ancient texts, Surapadhman went into deep meditation for years, worshipping Lord Shiva. Then finally Shiva appeared before him and granted him a boon. Surapadhman knowing that shiva was the most powerful of all, took advantage of this and wished that he could only be destroyed by a force more powerful than Shiva himself. His wish was granted. He used his newly acquired power for the evil and created chaos in the human world.
The Devas( demigods) panicked, but could not approach Shiva directly, as Shiva was always in deep penance and anyone who disturbed him was burned to ashes. So they plotted with Kamadeva (god of love and sex), to shoot a flower arrow at Shiva, as he sat in meditation, so as to make him fall in love with Parvati. When Kama aimed his arrow, Shiva opened his third eye and burned Kama to ashes instantly. The sparks of the fiery seed of Shiva were unbearable; even the fire God Agni could not bear them; this fire was then transported by the river Ganga into the Saravana forest into a pond where the sparks became six children. They were raised by the six Kartika - the stars that make up the Pleiades. Parvati combined these six babies into one with six faces, i.e. Shanmukha.
Lord Shanmukha or Murugan, the god of war, the son of the Supreme god, Lord Shiva, was thus born to lead the gods to victory over Tarakasuran, Surapadhman, Singamugasuran and their demon companions. The divine spear, Shakthi Vel, was given to him by his mother Parvathi (Goddess of strength and power),to destroy the evil. The spear symbolizes his purification of human ills.
After killing the demon, His spear cleansed itself in the ocean and returned to him. He makes a peacock rise from ashes of the demon and uses it as his mount. His peacock mount symbolizes his destruction of the ego.
Lord Murugan is more popular in South India compared to other parts of India. He is the god of war and the patron deity of the Tamil land. Like most Hindu deities, He is known by many other names, including Senthil, Saravaṇa, Kārttikeya, Shanmukha , Kumāra ,Guha, Skanda ,Subrahmaṇya, Vēlaṇ and Swaminatha.
