Friends, I am finding the story of Lord Kartikeya very interesting. Many Kundalini secrets also seem to be hidden in this. So we will investigate it thoroughly. According to Shiv Purana, then the child born on the reed was seen by the sage Vishwamitra. The boy asked him to get his Vedokta sanskar or ritual ceremony done. When Vishwamitra said that he was a Kshatriya or warrior caste and not a Brahmin caste, Kartikeya told him that he had become a Brahmin by his boon. Then he baptised him. Then there came the six krittikas. When they started fighting over that child, he made six mouths and started breastfeeding from the six together. Agnidev also gave him powers by calling him his son. Taking those powers, he climbed Mount Karaunch and broke its summit. Then Indra got angry and attacked him with a thunderbolt, from which three men Shakha, Vaishakh and Naigam were born and all four of them ran to kill Indra. The Kritikas brought up Kartikeya after drinking their milk, and gave him all the comforts of the world. They kept him hidden from the eyes of the world so that no one would snatch that lovely little boy from them.
Parvati was apprehensive and asked Shiva where his unfailing semen had gone. Who stole it? That cannot fail. When Lord Shiva was sitting in his meeting with Parvati and other deities, he asked all the deities about this. He said that whoever stole his unfailing semen would be liable to punishment, because the king who does not punish the punishable, he becomes defamed in the world. All the deities gave their explanation in turn, and gave different curses to the seducer. Then Agnidev said that he gave that semen to the wives of the Saptarishis on the orders of Shiva. He said that he gave it to Himalaya. Himalaya told that he could not bear it and gave it to Ganga. Ganga said that she poured that unbearable semen into the reed grass. Vayudev or god of air said that at that very moment that semen became a child. Surya said that because he could not see the crying child, he went to the sunset untimely. Chandra or moon said that the Krutikas took him to their home. Jal or water said that Krittika has raised that child by lactating. Sandhya or dawn said that Kritikas have named him Karthik after lovingly nurturing him. Ratri or night said that those krittikas would never let her go away from her eyes. The day said that those krittikas dress him in the best ornaments, and make for him delicious food. This made both Shivparvati very happy, and all the people too. Then the ganas of Shiva went to Kritika with the divine plane. When the Kritikas refused to give him to them, the ganas showed them the fear of Shivaparvati. When the Kritikas were scared, Kartikeya consoled them and said that they do not need to be afraid while he was there. They hugged Kartikeya to the heart while weeping and asked him how he would be able to separate from his lactating mothers who would not let him go out of sight even for a moment. Kartikeya said that he would come to meet them. Mounting on the divine plane, Kartikeya came to Shivaparvati at Kailash. A festival of joy was celebrated. Shivparvati hugged him. Impressed by the divine radiance of Kartikeya, many people became his devotees and started praising him. They call him the one who helps attain Shiva and gives freedom from birth and death. They called him their favorite presiding deity. A goat tied for a man’s yagya had run away. Everyone looked for him everywhere in the universe, but he could not be found. Then the man came to Lord Kartikeya and started praying to him that only he could bring that goat, otherwise his Ajamedha or goat sacrificing Yagya would be destroyed. Kartikeya entrusted that task to a gana named Veerbahu as created by him. He brought the goat tied from any corner of the universe and handed it over to the man in front of Kartikeya. Kartikeya, sprinkling water on it, told him that the goat was not worthy of sacrifice, and gave it to the man. He left after thanking Kartikeya.
Revelation of the above kundalini metaphor
Vishwamitra had experienced Kundalini. He was a Kshatriya, but Brahmatej had come to him by the experience of Kundalini. He became a Brahmarishi only by the experience of the same Kundalini Purush i.e. Kartikeya. Brahmarishitva is by means of Kundalini, not only by caste or religion. To perform the rites of Kartikeya means that he established the Kundalini Purush or kundalini man with his yogasadhana. The six krittikas are the six chakras. Kundalini Purush i.e. Kundalini picture travels on all the chakras, sometimes going to one chakra and sometimes to another chakra. This is called their fighting among themselves. Then the yogi, with intense yoga practice, made him move around all the chakras so fast that he appeared to be situated on all the chakras simultaneously. It is like this that if one moves a burning torch around rapidly, it looks like it is burning simultaneously in the whole circle. This is said to make the six faces of Kartikeya and drink the milk of all the six krittikas simultaneously. One gets strength from the meditation of the Kundalini Purush on the chakras. This is said to drink the milk by Kartikeya. Romance related subjects are also called ‘hot’. That’s why Agnidev has control over those subjects. Because the Kundalini Purush originated from these romantic subjects, that is why he became the son of Agnidev. Even after its origin, the Kundalini Purush continued to get strength from Tantric Yoga, in which tantric type love plays the main role. This is said to give strength to Kartikeya by Agnidev. Then Kundalini came on top of the agyachakra taking power from god of fire. Mooladhara and Ajnachakra are shown to be directly connected to each other. It is said that Kartikeya climbed the mountain of Krauncha, agyachakra being the krauncha. The word closest to krauncha in hindi is kranti or revolution. The agya chakra is an intelligent chakra. Revolution happens only by intellect, not by foolishness. Kartikeya breaks the summit of the mountain krauncha, meaning it destroys the sharp, judgmental and dual intelligence. The soul filled with ego wants to prevent Kundalini from going to Sahasrara. That ego is called Indra. The thing that he stops Kundalini from ascending up is the thunderbolt attack on Kartikeya by him. Kundalini comes from three nadis on the agya chakra. These nadis are Ida, Pingala and Sushumna. Due to this, Kundalini keeps on coming down from the Agya chakra, and keeps on going up again through the three nadis. This makes her very powerful. This is the separation of the three pieces from Kartikeya due to the thunderbolt. The shakha branch is Ida, Vishakha is Pingala, and Naigam is Sushumna. Shakha itself means branch in Hindi. The name associated with branch is given because these two nadis are like twigs. The main tree is Sushumna, hence it is named as Naigam. Sushumna is the essence of all the nigamas i.e. Dharmashastras, hence the name Naigam. Together with the Kundalini Purush i.e. Kartikeya, these three metaphoric men rushed to kill Indra, which means that Kundalini was moving towards Sahasrara forcefully, due to which the ego of Indra was to be destroyed. Everyone is praising Kartikeya in the same way as the Kundalini Purush form as deity is praised. Kundalini can also get power through tantric activities. This is more so when intense manifestation of Kundalini is accompanied by a lot of physical exertion. This means that it is Kundalini that makes tantric yagyas successful. The completion of the yajna by finding the scapegoat by a gana named Veerbahu, born by Kartikeya, reflects this principle. Veerbahu means a person who is brave because of the power of his arms. It is a sign of labor. Most of the time, Kundalini is satisfied with the symbols of Shakti, there is no need for violence for Shakti. It also implies the combination of least violence and maximum spiritual gain. It is shown that Kartikeya sprayed water on the goat and asked it to be released to protest the illegitimate violence in the name of Tantra. This is a symbolic form of violence. The rest next week.
