Pragya Vivardhana Karthikeya Stotram

Please help to maintain respect for volunteer spirit. It is a short stotra but also remarkably powerful. The stotra is credited with developing the praGYA intelligence and has been given by skanda himself. Why is the development of praGYA given such importance?

The answer is given in the vedas itself. This medhA refers to the development of the buddhi such that the truth can be clearly seen. Brahman is hidden from the view of the unclear buddhi like dense clouds hiding the sun.


The clear buddhi which has been obtained by intense sAdhana, sees brahman like a person seeing the sun through a thin mist. Thus the jIvanmukta, is different from a person without a clear buddhi. Hence, development of buddhi is given prime importance in our tradition. The most famous examples is the gAyatri mantra, which is chanted during the daily sandhyAva.

Kartikeya Stotram

Another one is the nitya karma for brahmachAris, the samitAdAnam. There are, of course many more such mantras in the vedas. However, the recitation of these mantras requires learning them from a guru and many of us are unable to get such an opportunity, especially in this modern age.

But, the stotrams from purANAs and the tantras can be chanted by one and all, with no exceptions. In thamiz tradition, skanda, or murukan as he is called, is considered the very embodiment of all good and it is held that he is eager to bestow GYAnA to one and all.


Kartikeya Pragya Vivardhana Stotram – In sanskrit with meaning

Thus, true to tradition, at the end of the stotram he says that anyone chanting his 28 names, even if he kartikeyq unable to speak will become accomplished in speech, like Brihaspati. The person who considers this as mahA mantra and chants them will attain mahA praGYA great intelligence.

Some of the names refer to some kartieya associated with skanda. The person who reads my 28 names told here with concentration, in the morning, obtains equal status with Brihaspati in speech, even if he cannot speak.

Further, the person who reads my names as maha mantras obtains great intelligence. There is no doubt about this.
