Need an expert's advise ?


As per stories, there was a demon named Tarakasur. He did severe penance to please Lord Brahma. Seeing his severe penance, Brahma ji was very pleased. He was pleased and gave darshan to Tarakasur. Pleased with that harsh penance, Brahma Ji came in front of him. Asking Brahma Ji for a boon, Tarakasur asked to make him immortal. Brahma Ji explained to him that he who is born must die. Then Tarakasura got frustrated and asked Brahma Ji that the Lord should make him die at the hands of Shiva's son. He said this because he used to think that if Shivaji will never get married then how will he have a son. Therefore he will never die. Then he started inflicting violence on the people. Everyone was troubled by his atrocities.
Everyone got upset and reached Shivaji. He prayed to Shiva to free him from Tarakasura. Then Shiva married Parvati and became the father of Kartikeya. After growing up, Kartikeya killed Tarakasur. Skandamata is the Goddess of Kartikeya.Kartikeya is also called the Kumar commander of the gods. Kartikeya is also known in the Puranas by the names Sanat-Kumar, Skanda Kumar, etc. In this form, the Goddess rides on a lion and kills the tyrannical demons. Being the daughter of Parvatraj, she is also called Parvati, and being the wife of Lord Shiva, she also has the name Maheshwari. She is also called Gauri because of her fair complexion. Goddess has more love for her son, hence she is called Skandamata who loves her son very much.
