Skanda Sashti Vrat 2022

Important information

Skanda Shashthi is considered an important day in Hinduism, especially among Tamil Hindus. Lord Skanda is known as Murugan, Kartikeya and Subramandaya. Skanda is the eldest son of Lord Shiva and Mother Parvati and is the elder brother of Ganesha. The day of Skanda Shashthi is completely dedicated to Lord Skanda and Kartikeya. Skanda Shashti is also known as Kanda Shashthi.

When Panchami Tithi ends or Shashthi Tithi starts between sunrise and sunset then both Panchami and Shashthi are conjugated and this day is chosen for Skanda Shashthi Vratam. This rule is mentioned in Dharmasindhu and Nirnayasindhu. The same rule is followed in the Murugan temples of Tamil Nadu and Suryasanharam day is observed a day before Shashthi Tithi if the previous day Shashthi Tithi is combined with Panchami Tithi.

Although all the Shashthi are dedicated to Lord Murugan, the Shukla Paksha Shashthi during the lunar month Kartika is considered to be the most important. Devotees observe a six-day fast which continues on the day of Suryasanharam. The day after Suryasanharam is known as Thiru Kalyanam.
