Parad Murugan/Mercury Murugan (पारद मुरुगन): Lord Murugan Swami with Peacock is beautifully captured in high quality Parad. Lord Murugan is also known as Kartikeya, Skanda, Kumara, Subrahmanyam. People worship Lord Murugan for removing the three evils associated with soul, ego, bondage, non-action (impure action). Lord Kartikeya is an embodiment of perfection, a brave leader of god’s forces, and a war god, who was created to destroy the demons, representing the negative tendencies in human beings.
Kartikeya carries on one hand a spear and his other hand is always blessing devotees. His vehicle is a peacock, a pious bird that grips with its feet a serpent, which symbolizes the ego and desires of people. The peacock represents the destroyer of harmful habits and the conqueror of sensual desires. The symbolism of Kartikeya thus points to the ways and means of reaching perfection in life. Atharva Veda describes Kumaran as Agnibhuh or son of Agni, the fire god. The Satapatha Brahmana refers to him as the son of Rudra and the ninth form of Agni. Parad Murugan
The Taittiriya Aranyaka contains the Gayatri mantra for Shanmukha. The Chandogya Upanishad refers to Skanda as the way that leads to wisdom. The Baudhayana Dharma sutra mentions Skanda as Mahasena and Subrahmanyam. Moreover, the Aranya Parva canto of the Mahabharata relates the legend of Kartikeya Skanda in considerable detail. The Skanda Purana is on the narrative of Kartikeya. Parad is well famous for its grasping capacity. It grasps the divine spirit. The spiritual vibrations get attractions towards these shining idols easily.
Parad Murugan Benefits:
Idols are not the idle fancies of sculptors but shining channels through which the heart of the devotee attracts to and flows towards God. Though people worship the image, the devotee feels the presence of the Lord in it and pours out his devotion unto it. However, regular worship, Puja, and other modes of demonstrating our inner feeling of recognition of Divinity in the idol unveils the Divinity latent in it. However, this is truly a wonder and a miracle. Mercury Murugan
The picture comes to life. The idol speaks. It will answer your questions and solve your problems. The God in you has the power to awaken the latent Divinity in the idol. The lives of Mirabai, Sant Tukaram, Shri Ramakrishna Paramhansa, and Shri Yoga Nanda are a few instances to prove the point. However, they proved beyond doubt that idol worship has its own brighter side. It is through simple faith and intense devotion one can realize God through it.
