Divya Tejas

Divya Tejas
 
The story goes that the sparks which flashed
forth from the third eye of Shiva rushed through space, which "vAyu"
(the Wind God) and "aGni" (the Fire God) carried and dropped into
the river GangA (hence the name gAngEya). GangA, being unable to
contain the divine energy, shoved it on to her banks, upon a shrub of
reeds known as "Shara". There is thus a combination of the ether,
air, fire, water and earth principles in the depositing of
the "tEjas" or energy of Shiva in the world. The cumulative force
which combined the forms of the five elements (pancha bhUta)
impregnated with the divine power of Shiva (Divya-Tejas) manifested
itself as a sixfold divinity with six faces (ShaNmukha), including
both the unmanifest and manifest
elements in a single being. This is the child of Shiva, of mysterious
birth, mysterious bringing up, under mysterious circumstances, for a
mysterious purpose which the gods alone knew. THE THIRD EYE
REPRESENTS THE PRINCIPLE OF INTELLIGENCE AND SKANDA, THUS, AS A
REVELATION THROUGH THE THIRD EYE OF SIVA, IS SAID TO STAND FOR AN
INCARNATION OF DIVINE KNOWLEDGE."
