Skanda Sashti is dedicated to worshipping Lord Muruga or Subrahmanya, the younger son of Lord Shiva. Puranas say that Lord Subrahmanya was born on the day of Sashti Tithi and hence worshipping him on this day is believed to be highly beneficial.

Skanda Sashti Significance

Once upon a time, there was a terrific demon called Surapadma who troubled all the worlds along with his brothers. Following the intense prayers of gods and humans for a very long time, Lord Shiva gave out six sparks from his third eye. The sparks entered a pond and got consolidated into six children. Later when Mother Parvati embraced these six children together, they all became one incarnating as Lord Subrahmanya or Muruga. The little boy vanquished all the demons and saved the worlds upon the orders of his parents. Skanda Sashti is highly significant as the birth of Lord Muruga happened on this day.

What is done on Skanda Sashti?

On the day of Skanda Sashti, people observe a day long fast. It is believed that the ideal day to observe this vrat is when Panchami tithi and Sashti tithi coincide in a day.

Pujas to Lord Muruga and temple visits on this day are considered beneficial.
