The legend behind divine power of Muruga – The Vel
Lord Muruga, the son of Lord Shiva and Parvati was created to vanquish a demon called Tharakasura, who kept disturbing the sages. The main weapon of Lord Muruga was the ‘Vel’ which is popularly known as Shaktivel. It is a divine weapon given by Maa Shakti to dispel darkness and to destroy enemies and evil spirits. It signifies a higher level of wisdom and liberation of humanity. The power of Vel is the way to eradicate ignorance and to lower the karmic impressions. This powerful weapon can lead you to higher wisdom and ultimate human consciousness on the occasion of Thai poosam 2011.
