Skanda Shashti:
Skanda Shashti is the festival dedicated for Lord Karthikeya, second son of Lord Shiva, also known as Subramanya, Kumaresa, Guha, Murugan, Shanmukha and Velayudhan, who on this day, is believed to have annihilated the mythical demon. Shashti is the day the Lord Subramanya defeated the demon Soorapadman. He fought Soorapadman for six days, at the end of which Lord vanquished the asura. He threw his weapon at him and Soorapadman was split into two halves. One half became a Peacock, which he took as his vahana. The other became a Rooster and was transformed into his flag. The devas who were tormented by Soorapadman, rejoiced and they praised the Lord and prayed to him for six days.

Offering of Kavadi on Skanda Shashti is a form of popular worship. Corresponding to six days of war over the evil forces, devotees undertake fasts, prayers and devotional singing of Lord Muruga.

Rudrabhishekams by priest at your home
October 20th to November 17th (Lunar Calendar)
November 17th to December 15th (Solar Calendar)

Rudrabhishekam is performed to Lord Shiva. This abhishekam is performed to wash away sin and bring home prosperity and happiness in the family.

Karthika masam is the one of the favourite lunar month for Lord Shiva and this Rudrabhishekam can be performed on this month.

Rudrabhishekam Pooja: This Pooja, where Lord Shiva is worshiped in His Rudra form, is hailed by all Vedic scriptures as one of the greatest Poojas to remove all evils, to attain all desires and for all round prosperity. In this Pooja after the traditional Ganesha Pooja, Kalasha sthapana etc, the Shiva Linga sthapana is done. Then Laghunyasa is recited. The Shivopasana mantra and the 108 names of Lord Shiva are recited. Then Sri Rudram (chapter 16 & 18 of Yajur Veda) is recited and the Shiva Linga abhishekam is done with the prescribed 11 ingredients like water, milk, curd, ghee, honey etc. The Sri Rudram identifies 346 desires of human beings to be fulfilled to have a peaceful daily life and invokes Lord Rudra to fulfill all of them. The Astrology scriptures have repeatedly prescribed this as a remedy for several planetary Doshas. Whether you want peace or prosperity, progeny or progress in profession, health or wealth the Rudrabhishekam Pooja is the ideal one. It will be done in your name and with your sankalpa, i.e., the specific purpose for which you are getting the pooja performed.
