STORY OF BIRTH OF SHANMUKHA(SUBRAMANYA)

LORD SHIVA OPENS 3RD EYE , AND KAMA DEVA WAS  REDUCED 2 ASHES

After Sati immolated herself, Shiva goes into deep meditation..Meanwhile Soorapadman who has grown to power (with boon from Lord shiva himself) torments and prisons devas.

All gods goes to Shiva for a solution, but nobody dares to
disturb him, as he is inmeditation, but had no choice as
Soorapadman's tormentswas unbearable, finally they all
suggest Manmatha(Kama deva) to hit Lord shiva with his arrows (which creates Love in any person)..

Moment Manmatha hits shiva with arrow, shiva wakes up
opening his 3rd eye, and there by turning Manmatha into
ashes, Rati devi and all gods plead to bring Manmatha to
life....Shiva brings back Manmatha to life in flesh and blood
for Rati, and formless state for world. 



                    

Six fiery sparks from Shiva's 3rd eye was unbearable even by Agni deva(god of fire), and fire was transported to Sara Vana forest, which turned into six babies on lotus, raised by Krithika nymphs.



                            


Later the babies are handed over to Parvathi,this 6 babies
into one with 6 faces, i.e Shanmukha.who combines who leads the Devas army and slays Soorapadman and his companions..



                          



Shanmukha - One with 6 faces.
Muruga - The beautiful one
Karthikeya - Raised by 6 Karthika's
Palaniappa - One who stays in Palani

(or he is considered as Palam(fruit)
