Kandha Sashti 2011: The 6 Boons of Lord Skanda

Let the Vel protect and guide you! Start your Sashti Sadhana today!

Day 3 of Kandha Sashti

In the prior posts, mantras and potential sadhanas were presented to the reader.

But what are the benefits and attributes of praying to Lord Skanda over the Kandha Sashti period?

There are 6 main boons provided by Skanda:

1. Wisdom and Intelligence. The young Skanda is said to have initiated his own father Shiva into the secrets of the Pranava mantra – Om! You can be blessed with such spiritual wisdom and intelligence when praying to Him.

2. Powers of Attraction. Along with Sri Krishna, Skanda is known as an extremely attractive and charismatic God to His devotees. Praying to him as the all attracting one will allow one to gain the blessings of a magnetic personality.

3. Courage and strength. Skanda is known as the God of War – a fierce warrior ready to do battles against the demons within and without. Pray to Him for courage in your day to day life and help in making big bold decisions.

4. Peace. Peace is a scarce commodity in these days and times. Allow yourself to become a channel of Skanda’s peace.

5. Self-control. One cannot lead without setting an example to your co-workers and subordinates. Master yourself and gain discipline by praying to Skanda for help.

6. Moksha. Skanda is known as a deity with the full authority of Heaven to deliver aspirants to Moksha (release from birth and death). The true spiritual aspirant will have this as the ultimate goal and sole purpose of their prayers.
