Sanmukha (dios de seis cabezas) 1

   Otros nombres para Sanmukha eran Guha, Kartikeya,2 Muruga, Shadannana, Skanda y Subramaniam.


Muruga has many powers and like all the Gods, he has some "specialties" - he is fiercely protective of his devotees and removes the most formidable of negative forces such as debts (especially credit card debts - "compounded negativity"), ill health/disease, and enemies. He also grants opportunities in real estate ventures.
Muruga represents a person of perfection. He is the war God, the Hindu equivalent of Mars and Aries. He was created by all the Gods to lead the heavenly hosts and destroy the demons. He is the most masculine and fierce of all the Gods. He is also fire, Agni, and is very Pitta (fiery) in nature. While Ganesh removes all obstacles, Skanda bestows all spiritual powers, particularly the power of knowledge.
In one hand he carries a vel (spear) which symbolizes the destruction of negative tendencies in humans. With his other hand he always blesses devotees.
Muruga's vehicle is a peacock which is capable of destroying harmful serpents (symbolizing harmful ego and bad desires of people). The Rooster is also associated with Muruga and is usually depicted on his flag. The Rooster eliminates evil - keeping an image or icon of the Rooster invokes the power and protection of Muruga to ward off negative forces.
