Goddess Skandamata: The Ancient Lore
According to the ancient story, a demon named Tarakasur did ultimate penance and Yagya/Havan in order to impress Lord Brahma. After getting impressed with Tarakasur’s dedication, Lord Brahma appeared before him and told him to ask him for a boon. A boon of immortality was asked by Tarakasur from Lord Brahma. After hearing this Lord Brahma told Tarakasur that whoever has taken birth shall die one day. After this, Tarakasur asked Lord Brahma for a boon which stated that he shall be killed by Lord Shiva’s son, as Tarakasur thought that Lord Shiva will never get married.
In such a situation, there is no hope of Lord Shiva having a son and with this boon he shall remain immortal. Lord Brahma then granted him his boon and after having that Tarakasur started tormenting people. After getting distressed from the demon, people went to Lord Shiva and prayed for their salvation. Then Lord Shiva married Goddess Parvati and then their son Lord Kartikeya was born. After growing up Kartikeya killed the demon, Tarakasur. So, being the mother of Lord Skanda i.e Lord Kartikeya, she is called Skandmata.
