Soorasamharam, 6 November 2016

6 November 2016 is Soorasamharam. It is an important event during Skanda Sashti festival.

According to legend Soorapadman was a demon and had acquired tremendous powers and also had obtained the boon of immortality. However he started tormenting the Gods and this created havoc in the Universe.

All the Gods approached Lord Shiva to help them. Then Lord Shiva created Lord Muruga with the flames emanating from his third eye. Muruga then received the Vel from Parvati. Then Muruga was ready to fight Soorapadman. Read the full story of Soorasamharam here…
