The real meaning of Lord Murugan’s Vel

The real meaning of Lord Murugan’s Vel

TAGS:

    While everyone is familiar with the image of Lord Murugan holding His Vel (Spear), there are many who remain unaware of the immense significance of the Vel.

    Lord Murugan has infinite representations and is also known as the embodiment of knowledge. The Lord himself once took the role of the Master Guru to his own father, Lord Shiva at Swami Malai.

    As such, the Vel has a lot to do with one’s mind and knowledge. It is very clear that the Vel is broad, has a sharp edge and is very deep in its length. Many scholars have suggested that the breadth represents the broadness of the mind. The sharpness denotes the sharpness of our knowledge. It also is associated with one-pointed devotion and ambition. 

    The depth of the Vel simply relates to depth of our thoughts and mind. The iconography of the Murugan’s Vel certainly should be taken a guide by all of us.
