3.Mars – Mangal / Kuja

MANGAL or KUJA was born in the month of Asadha on Tuesday. His birth star is Anuradha and was born on the tenth of shukla phase. He was born into a Bharadwaja gotra, the four armed Kuja, who is also known as Mangala, is red in color. Gold coronet on the head, red garlands and red dress mark him out to be a Mars god. Goat is his vehicle. He adorns trident (the weapon of Lord Shiva), blessing-style, fear-less position and mace in all his four arms.

According to the Brahma Vaivarta Puraana, the time dates back to the post cosmic incarnation of Lord Vishnu as a boar. The story goes to say that Bhoodevi falls in love with Lord Vishnu and approaches him.

The lord favors her and she leaves a coral in the ocean as a token of their togetherness. Kuja is said to have born out of that coral. Etymologically, ‘KU’ means earth and ‘JA’ refers to birth. Hence he is referred to as the son of the earth or in other words Bhauma.

Padma Puraana gives a slightly different version of Kuja’s origin. Once a bead of perspiration from Lord Vishnu’s brow falls on the earth and from that energy a red colored person, who is also known as Lohitaanga takes birth. He wins over Lord Brahma with his rigorous penance and secures a position in the planets. He is none other than Kuja.

Shiva Puraana tracks down his origin to Lord Shiva. Sati Devi, daughter of Dakshaprajapati, immolates herself in the Yogic fire, as a sequel to her separation from the lord. Lord Shiva too is stricken with agony and in that pain-filled state; a drop of sweat from his body falls on earth. Again a crimson colored person emerges out of the drop of sweat and Bhoodevi tends him. Hence Kuja is looked upon as the son of Lord Shiva or Kumara Swami. It is in this context that Kumara Swami is ceremoniously worshiped on Tuesdays. Whatever may be the origin of Mangal Grah , he is considered as Son of Earth .

The great phase of Mars lasts for seven years. Mars is the lord of two zodiacs, i.e., Aries and Scorpio. Lord Kartikeya is considered to be the deity of the Mars.

Once, when Lord Shiva was in deep meditation, perspiration from his third eye fell on earth. The male child that was born of this sweat drop was Angaragan (Chevvai). Angaragan married Sakthi Devi of Avanti town and had a son called Sumarasan.

Problems from wife/children/brothers, enimity with friends, loss of wealth, quarrels, problems with Govt., lasting poverty, anger, bad friendship, Kalahari Do sham are because of Chevvai.
