That's news to me. I thought that in the North, Kartikeya is regarded as a bachelor.

Anyway, what are Kartikeya's wives names in Rajasthan? 



Valli--a princess of South and Devsena--daughter of indra

Who is this andhak details please
Andhakasura was a demon born from Lord Shiva's sweat. Yeah, gross whatever.
OK, so do you remember one episode where Parvati puts her hands n Mahadev's eyes, and his third eye comes out? THAT should have been when they showed Andhakasura. WHen Parvati closed his eyes, Mahadev opened his third eye. Due to the heat generated, his sweat drops fell on the ground. And since Mahadev's normal eyes were closed, the sweat drops became a blind child. Parvati brought him up as her own son.
And now... HIranyaksha, the demon killed by Lord Varaha... This comes before his death ok?
So HIranyaksha prayed to Mahadev and asked him for a son. Mahadev promptly took Andhaka and gave it to HIranyaksha.
When both Hiranyaksha and Hiranyakashipu died, Prahlada's other brothers (Anuhlada, Samhlada and Hlada) teased  A-ndhaka about his blindness. So Prahlada -told him to worship -L-o-rd -Brahma and ask him for boon. So Andhaka started Tapasya. In the meantime, Prahlada's brothers died in some Devasura war and Prahlada got Moksha, and his son Virochana was not yet king. So Lord Brahma appeared and restored Andhaka's sight. Andhaka asked him the boon of being killed ONLY if he lusted his mom. Brahma said, "Okay" and disappeared as usual.

Now Andhaka became very powerful and defeated the devas (once again, as usual) and decided to conquer Kailash. There he saw Parvati (his mom) and wanted to marry her. She said no.
Andhaka got furious and atacked Kailash. At that time Lord SHiva had gone somewhere (I think to fulfil some BHakta's wish). res res

sorry to say this...but d shiva purana does not mention such a story...actually, its nt sure whether d original purana had it or was tis story added later...debate continues among historians...but most believe tat story was added later...so, for ME...d original shiv purana does not mention andhaka!!!!

Oh god. Wildcat, (what is your real name?), Shiva Purana and many other Puranas DO mention Andhaka.

In fact, Shiva Purana mentions 2 Andhakas - one is the son who was ultimately forgiven and made a gana, while the other was a midget asura like Raktabheej whose blood touching the ground would create new asuras, and whose blood Mahadev collected in a bowl to prevent it from spilling.

I thought the names of ganesh's wives were riddhi and siddhi. Who is budhi?

the shiv purana i read is ancient n ancestral...it does not mention any andhak...forget two!!! n according to my grand-mom that purana should be of around the 9th century!!!!
