Kartikeya

From Sahaja Yoga Encyclopedia
Standing at 42.7 m (140 ft) high, the world's tallest statue of Murugan or Kartikeya, is located outside Batu Caves, near the city of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Kartikeya was the son of Parvati Uma, who was just a mother of these two children, Ganesha and Kartikeya.... Kartikeya represents the great captain or the leader of all the ganas, like a commander-in-chief. Ganesha is the king, but He is the commander-in-chief.... To be in command is different from being a master. The master owns it. A commander does not own it. He does not own it. That is also lost, possession is also lost. We just command it. And that is the state we have to come to now, from Ganesha state to the state of Kartikeya – the other way around. Ganesha is nice. He is the king, very nicely sitting down with all the powers. In a sense He is there, but Kartikeya is the one who commands innocence, gives you a power of that commandment.... at commanding spirit comes in the men through their talking, through their dynamism, through their personal achievements; for the women through their loving power, through their forbearance, through their gracious behaviour, forgiveness, compassion. So let us develop that today, that we can command it. That means it is not that which we have, but in a position we are to command. I hope you understand what is Kartikeya. (1986-07-13)
