Sashti Vrata

Sashti Vrata


Sashti Vrata falls on April 2, Sunday.


Shashti is a day dedicated to Lord Muruga. The victory of Muruga over Surapadma is celebrated through Sashti festival. It is not just the destruction of a demon like Surapadma but it is the celebration of the victory of good over bad.


Observing Sashti Vrata has been part of the regular prayers of the devotees of Lord Muruga. Taking a vow on the day brings innumerable benefits to the devotees. Those who are childless are advised to observe Sashti Vrata and pray to Lord Muruga for a child.


Kantha Sashti Kavasam is a verse written by Devarayan in praise of Muruga, praying to him to protect our body from head to toe from all kinds of harm and illness.


Reciting Kantha Sashti Kavasam every day removes fear and negative influences in our life.


துதிப்போர்க்கு வல்வினை போம்; துன்பம்போம்; நெஞ்சில்
பதிப்போர்க்குச் செல்வம் பலித்துக்-கதித்தோங்கும்
நிஷ்டையுங் கைகூடும், நிமலரருள் கந்தர்சஷ்டி கவசம் தனை.
அமர ரிடர்தீர அமரம் புரிந்த குமரனடி நெஞ்சே குறி.


Those who chant Kantha Sashti Kavasam will get rid of their karmic influences, will get wealth and spiritual enlightenment. Let us dedicate ourselves to the feet of Lord Muruga who wiped out the sorrows of Devas.
