(Our greetings to you  kamarupa shanmukha! you are kumara  the radiant son of maha
shiva and the destroyer of danavas; your physical form is the glow of rising son and of
the heat of Agni; you are appropriately adorned  the Army Chief of devas; the dreadful
on the battle front; guhya rupa  the abolisher of fear in Trilokas in the Form of a Child;
gifted with broad and clear eyes; vishākhā! Our reverences to you as the practitioner of
maha vratas; you are a terror in battle fields although of pleasant visage otherwise; you
have a peacock as your carrier and wear a keyura   wrist bangles; the high flier of flags;
the bestower of boons to devotees; the high profile symbol of courage and strength; you
possess a magnificent Form.This was how Indra and devas extolled skanda.) Essence of
kurma purana]
