Tamil Hindus have a very popular God call Lord Murugan the patron God of the Tamilians. The warrior son of Shiva and Parvati, born to kill a demon. His symbols are weapons of war, like the Vel, the Lance or the divine spear which he is always found carrying in his popular avatar, a top a peacock. This Vel was given to him by his mother Goddess Parvati to vanquish the asuras, which embodies her power and energy. This mystic device also symbolizes the Absolute Wisdom which destroys the inner demons of illiteracy, bad karma and sets the soul free. This Vel is also interpreted as a divine protective power to safeguard the world from adversities. This weapon is worshiped independently in some of the temples of Murugan. Just chanting the word Vel, one invokes the blessings of Lord Murugan.
The shining Vel of Lord Murugan signifies the power of wisdom and the blessing of his mother Parvati who wanted her son to be victorious over the demon led by Surapadma. This instrument has exceptional strength and the divine power and is also known by the names of Vira Vel or Sakti Vel. It serves as a protection against cruelty and atrocity in any form. It is believed to dominate over chaos and bring about order, peace and prosperity. It also signifies that Lord Murugan would come to the aid of any devotee who has beckoned him in distress.
Lord Murugan is a yogic grace of Lord Shiva and his wisdom of His third eye to see through an illusion. The Vel depicts the Para Sakti, the Highest Shakti which is within oneself, when called upon, shatters all illusions and helps the person to see beyond the world of this Maya. The Vel stands for the unison of the Jnana Shakti of Lord Shiva and the Para Shakti of Paravati, forming the Divine Knowledge. Thus the Vel denotes the pursuit of the aspirant’s thirst for spiritual knowledge which is pure, and in doing so cleanses the Mind of its impurities.
We can draw a paradigm of the Lord Murugan and his Vel between the evolution of the Spirit and achieving Moksha. Using the routine life energies (Sakti) the individual discovers his True divinity (Shiva) and his unison with the Ultimate Truth. Possession of the Vel can help us in the process of attaining the complete knowledge of the cosmos, its Union with the Divine and the maintenance of the perfect balance of the Universe. The Vel is also an instrument to destroy the Ego, which is camouflaged and ultimately the soul is liberated from all its ignorance
