Story of Sooran Poor
Skanda Sashti is one of the most important festivals for Tamil Hindus and this day is dedicated to worshipping Lord Murugan. Skanda Sashti fasting is done during the ‘Karthika’ masam in the Tamil calendar and devotees begin their fast from the day of the Karthika lunar month known as ‘Pirathamai’ while the fasting culminated on the sixth day, popularly known as Soorasamharam day. Soorasamharam is the most important and final day of this six day festivities.
The day of Soorasamharam celebrates the triumph of good over evil. According to the legends it is believed that Lord Murugan defeated the demon named Surapadma with his ‘Vel’ and this godly act is called as Soorasamharam. Tamil devotees observe this day with dedication and worship Lord Murugan for restoring Dharam and liberating earth from all evils. The day after Soorasamharam is celebrated as ‘Thirukalyanam’, which is the day when the divine marriage ceremony of Lord Murugan and Devasena took place.
