The Six Mukhi Rudraksha is blessed by Lord Kartikeya the youthful, resplendent brave son of Lord Shiva. Kartikeya is known as Skanda (the spilled one) Shanmukha (the six faced one) Mahasena (Commander of the army of the Devas, Guru Guha (he who resides in a cave symbolic of the heart of Shiva).

According to our scriptures, Lord Kartikeya originated from the spilled seed of Lord Shiva to destroy Tarkasur. The heat emanating from this seed was so great that it was given to Agnidev for safe keeping. Even he could not hold it for long and handed it to Ganga. The waters of Ganga started evaporating and she deposited this seed on the Sharavana reeds. The seed split into six children and the children were taken care of by the six Krittikas. The six children were crying very loudly till Goddess Parvati came to see them. She combined them into one child. At her glance the six faced child became calm and his faces unified into one. This child was trained by Shiva, Shakti, Brahma, Saraswati and Laxmi.
He then fought Tarkasur and killed him. Once when lord Shiva asked Kartikeya the meaning of Om Kartikeya replied that only if he is given a place higher that Mahadev he would impart this secret. By revealing this hidden secret in Lord Shivas’ ears, much to the delight of Goddess Parvati; young Skanda was lovingly given a place on lord Shivas’ shoulder. Kartikeya is the energy that gives meaning to strength of OM (Pranava).
This verse from the Skanda Shakta Stotram clearly describes the form and energy of Lord Kartikeya. Kartikeya right from his birth was aided by pure and powerful divine deities like Agni, Ganga, Krittikas, Laxmi and Parvati and also by. Since he is born out of the blazing seed of Lord Shiva he is also associated with the planet Mars.
