Pragya Karthikeya Stotram

Pragya Vivardhana Karthikeya Stotram
[Prayer to Karthikeya which would increase intelligence]
Translated by P. R. Ramachander

[Here is a very unique prayer addressed to Lord Subrahmanya, which would help one to increase his intelligence and wisdom. It is said that even a mentally retarded child would become normal by reciting this prayer. The prayer is taught by Lord Subrahmanya himself and gives 28 names of Lord Subrahmanya. The Sanskrit original in deva nagari script is available in palanitemples.com/english/karthikeya_kandaastothram.htm]

Sri Ganesaya Nama.

Salutations to Ganesa

Sri Skanda Uvacha:-
Lord Subrahmanya told:-

Yogeswaro, maha sena, karthikeyo Agni nandana,
Skanda Kumara Senani, swami shankara sambhava,

Lord of Yogas, great commander, He who was looked after by Karthika stars,
The child of fire, the lad, the commander and the God born out of Shankara. 7

Gangeya sthamra choodasya brahmachari Shikhi dwaja,
Tharakaree Ruma puthra krouncharidhya Shadanana,

Son of Ganga, he who wears brass, bachelor,
One with peacock flag, he who killed Tharaka, son of Parvathi
He who broke Krouncha mountain, God with six faces. 15

Shabdha Brahma Samudrascha Sidha Saraswatho Guha,
Sanath kumaro Bhagawan Bhoga moksha phala pradha,

God of the sound of ocean, One with divine powers,
One who is learned, one who removes darkness,
God, One is son of fire, One who grants pleasure as well as salvation. 22

Sara Janma, gunadheesa, poorvajo, mukthi marga kruth,
Sarvagama pranetha, cha Vanchithartha pradarsana,

One born because of an arrow, God of good qualities.
One who is the greater, one who shows salvation,
One who is worshipped by all Vedas,
And one who gives whatever is desired. 28

Ashta vimsathi namni, madheeyanithi ya padeth,
Prathyoosham sradhaya yuktho muktho vachaspathir bhaveth,

A devotee of mine, who reads these twenty eight names,
Daily at day break with attention,
Would become great, devoid of attachment and a great scholar.

Maha manthra maya neethi mama namanu keerthanam,
Maha pragnamavapnothinathra karya vicharana,

These names composed by me, If sung,
Would make one extremely intelligent.

Ithi Sri Rudhra Yamale Pragna vivardhanakhyam,
Srimath Karthikeya stotram sampoornam

This prayer of Karthikeya which would increase intelligence comes to an end.
