p>Thaipusam occurs in the month of Thai on the day of the Pusam star, which is a full moon day. According to legend it was also the day when Sivan showed his cosmic dance, Anantha Thandavam, to Pambukal Munivar (Saint Patanjali) and Pulikal Munivar (Saint Vyaghrapadar) in Sithambaram. It’s also a very important day for Sivan worship.

Murugan is said to have come from Sivan’s forehead hence, it has become an important festival for Murugan over the years. As Kantha Puranam, the legend of Murugan, and Thirupugal which are divine verses on Murugan, adhere to Saiva principles, Murugan is accepted as being associated with Saivam and devotees pray to him as a wisdom of God.

It is important to understand that Murugan is NOT the son of Sivan. Murugan is the wisdom form of Sivan.

In ancient times, Murugan temples were usually found on hills. People who visited the temples carried offerings to Murugan as a penance. Their food and other essentials were tied to a  pole on their shoulders. This was known as kaavu or kaavuthadi and later the name evolved to become kavadi. Formerly kavadi’s were very small and carrying the kavadi was done as a penance to Murugan, in a simple manner.

Now devotees carry huge kavadis and do extensive piercing of the body with skewers. In some instances it become more of an entertainment. This is deeply regretful as the religious connotation is lost. They are not required to torture themselves, as this practise is not mentioned anywhere in Saiva agamam’s.

Murugan is said to have received the spear or Vel from Sivan’s consort on this day to defeat the demon Soorapathman, according to puranas. Soorapathman denotes all the bad traits in man. Puranas (legends) are not seen only as stories but will help to make people realise the lessons they teach.

The motive of Thaipusam festival is to pray to God to receive his grace so that bad traits are deleted.

As Sivan showed his celestial dance to the saints on that day, it is important to recite Thirumurai and request Sivan to show us his dance. This is the most appropriate prayer on that day.
