Sri Karthikeya Sthuthi/Ashtavimshathi Nama – Sri Rudrayamala Thanthram – Lyrics and meanings




|| Jai Sriman Narayana ||










I shall meditate upon supreme Lord Sri Karthikeya who is Yogeeshvara/Lord of Yogis, he is the chief commander of greatest army of deities, he is initiated from the fire, he is Skandha, he is youthful always, he is greatest warrior, he was born to Shankara, he is Gangeya who was born to sacred river Ganga, he holds majestic flag that has the symbol of rooster, he is supreme Bhramacharin who follows strict austerities and Bhramanic rites, he has peacock as celestial vehicle, he is the enemy of demon Tharakasura, he is Umaputhra who is the son of Goddess Uma,  he crushed the pride of Mount Krauncha, he is Shadanana who has marvelous six faces, he represents Shabdhabhramam resembels to the roar of ocean, he is Siddha, he is eloquent,  he is Guha who is highly confidential and resides in the caves, he is Sanathkumara who is capable to provide Bhoga/wealth and happiness and Moksha/liberation from repeated births to worshiper, he was born in the reeds, he is elder brother of Ganadheesha/Ganesha, he is the source of liberation from the repeated births, he represents all Agamashasthra, he fulfills all the desires of the worshiper.  The above are the glorious twenty eight names of Lord Karthikeya, whoever reads or listens to it with intense faith and devotion would become intellectual and master of speech even though he is ignorant, worshiper would remain Mahaprajja/wise, these are highly propitious hymns were eulogized by Lord Skandha.
