Skanda Sashti 2017
Lord Skanda The Warrior Cuts Off Ignorance, Bestows Good Marital Life
Skanda Shasti celebrates the birth of Skanda or Kumara and the divine purpose of his incarnation to kill a demon named Surapadma and his brothers Tarakasura and Simhamukha. He was a powerful general of the army of gods and his renowned vel or lance is a weapon to destroy the enemy. It symbolises wisdom, spiritual knowledge and wipes out ignorance. Skanda Shasti falls in the month of Ippasi (mid October to mid November) on the sixth day of Shukla paksha. The Sura Samharam event or killing of demons by Lord Skanda is enacted to this day in the temple of Tiruchendur and many other temples as well.

Three Powerful Homas On Skanda Sashti 2017
Relieves Mars Dosha, Cures Diseases, Defeats Enemies & Eliminates Avidya
Scheduled Live on October 25, 2017 @ 6 AM IST
Valli Deivanai Sametha Subramanyeswara Homam - Bestows Victory & Valour
The Valli Deivanai Sametha Subramanyeswarar Homam invokes the deities Lord Subramanya and his consorts Valli and Devasena or Deivanai. The yagya is performed as a healing and energising ritual to bestow enormous benefits. If one is having problems related to Mars like Mangala dosha or kuja dosha, then this ritual is apt. Lord Skanda is the presiding deity of Sacral chakra also known as Svadhisthana Chakra which is one of the seven major energy centres of human body. The lord dispels fears of all forms, vanquishes negative forces surrounding you and provides healing powers.
Since he was born from Lord Shiva’s six emissions of the third eye, he is associated with the latter’s name as Subramanyeswara. Along with his consorts Valli and Deivanai, he bestows energy, valour and victory besides giving blessings for a happy marriage, strong financial support and excellent health.
Kukuta Homam - Erases Mental Agony & Cures Ailments
The Kukuta Homam invokes Lord Skanda’s powerful mount the rooster. It destroys negative qualities like laziness, lack of motivation, mental agony due to debt traps, bad relationships and poor health. The homam removes darkness from one’s life and provides strength to face any type of adversaries.
It also educates the people about the higher echelons of life, brings success, provides motivation and energy to carry out tasks, improves relationships, cures diseases, perks up health, helps achieve desires and get rid of negativity.
It’s a very powerful yagya and can be carried out by only highly qualified priests.
Shatru Samhara Trishati Homa - Removes Veil of Ignorance & Destroys Enemies
The Shatru Samhara Trishati is one of the most important texts of Kaumara sect. It is used in a covert manner to destroy enemies. It is chanted by highly knowledgeable Vedic scholars who know to handle the powerful mantras carefully. The form of the lord invoked here is Shatru Samhara Murthi, the one who destroys the demon called Avidya which is the veil of spiritual forgetfulness, ignorance or individual illusion or absence of true knowledge.
