Significance

Kumar Sashti, also known as Kumara Sashti, is dedicated to Lord Kartik, the son of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvathi. Lord Kartik is also known as Kumar, Muruga and Subrahmanya. Kumar Sashti is believed to be the day when Lord Karikeya is said to have appeared on earth to defeat Adharma. Kumar Shasti is an important and auspicious day in Nepal and western parts of India.

History

It must be noted that the birthday of Lord Kartik is observed differently in different cultures. In South India, it is observed during Vaikasi Visakam in May or June.

Kumar Sashti is observed on the sixth day of the Shukla Paksha of Ashada Month.

Legend has it that Lord Kartik was born to defeat the demons and uphold dharma. Thus he is the General of the Army of Devas and vanquishes demons.

How to Celebrate

The festival is of great importance in Nepal and western parts of India. In Nepal, devout Hindus draw a red circle in front of the house with a mixture of red clay and cow dung.

Numerous rituals are observed on the day in Nepal in various temples dedicated to Lord Kumar.

Shasti falling after Amavasi is highly auspicious for Lord Muruga devotees and many devout Hindus in South India observe a fast on the day.
