The present monograph contains a brief study of the various facets of Karttikeya Cult which was widely practised throughout India in early periods and is, even now, quite popular in South India. Though known by various names in early literature, Karttikeya does not seem to have been known directly to the Vedas. He is, however, included in the Vedic divinities represented in the form of Vedic symbols, by the name of Kumara who is described as the wonderful hero and leader of the divine army. In the present work, efforts have been made to trace the origin and development of the cult of Karttikeya, materials for which have been gleaned from literature, epigraphs, COINS and art-objects. In this connection it is interesting to note that this cult had, in the course of centuries, travelled far beyond the frontiers of India and made a remarkable impact on the religious life of the people in almost all the countries of the Asian continent. Among the gods, he symbolised vigour and prowess par- excellence and his decisive victory over the asuras accorded him a revered place among the gods of Hindu pantheon. A study of Hindu divinities worshipped in South-East Asia would show that Indian ideas and 'practices passed into those lands almost unchanged and were accepted in their totality. Printed Pages: 122 with 43 plates.
