Why Vaikasi Visakam for the Homa?
Vaikasi Visakam is the day of incarnation of Lord Muruga. This occasion remains a very special day for Muruga worship. Vaikasi Visakam occurs when the full Moon coincides with the auspicious Vishaka star during the Tamil month of Vaikasi (May–June) and is celebrated with great piety and enthusiasm.
Muruga or Shanmuga appeared from the flame that Lord Shiva released from his third eye, principally for annihilating evil and establishing Dharma, the righteousness on earth. Armed with the divine Vel, the lance, provided to him by divine mother Parvati, he led an army of celestial beings against the mighty demons, and fought and subdued them, thus ridding the world of great evil.
Vaikasi Visakam, the day of birth of the Lord is observed with great religious fervor and enthusiasm. In the current year, this special day falls on Monday, May 28, 2018, when the Lord will be invoked in the auspicious fire ceremony, ‘Shanmuga Mala Mantra Homa’.
