Lord Muruga is heralded in Hinduism in several names including Skanda, Karthikeya, Subrahmanya, Shanmukha, Shaktidhara, Kumara and many others. The iconography of Lord Muruga is represented with six faces and twelve hands with the five faces depicting the five elements of nature and he sixth face referring to the spirit that activates all of them. Hindu god forms are rather symbols of what they teach humans. Each of the god forms is based on a lofty philosophy that drives home several spiritual truths and moral values. The two wives of Lord Murugan are also rather symbols that teach humans the ultimate purpose of human life. The two wives of Lord Muruga namely Valli and Devasena refer to icha shakti and kriya shakti, meaning the power of will and power of action respectively, while Lord Muruga represents Gnana Shakti or the power of wisdom. In her earlier birth, Valli was the daughter of Lord Vishnu and she undertook a severe penance to get married to Lord Murugan. Devasena was in her previous birth the daughter of Indra, the king of gods, who too did an austere penance to get wedded to Lord Murugan.
