Shri Suta preached to Shaunak and others that ” Parshuram kshetra where lord had performed tapas ,the place where Rushyashrunga had lived ,famously known as Kumar parvat ,on whose peak lives Subramhanya ! I recite the story of such Kumar as known to me ; Listening to this story ,relieves one of kushtha [skin diseases ] and other miseries .Shanmukha mahima relives us all of the pain and thus I recitethe story of Kumar parvat , kumar dhara and Shanmukha as told to Parvati by Shiva , also as known by conversation between Bramha and Narada as told by Sahasrabindu to his son shatabindu ,may this bring happiness to all and this bestow punya .
In tretayuga Sahasrabindu told thus to his son shatabindu ” oh dear son , I narate to you what shiva had narrated to his son Shanmukha in his childhood . Mahasesha ,one day tired of bearing the earth on his head ,prayed Lord Vishnu , Lord appeared and blessed Sesha to take a break and happily choose his dwelling place for sometime till then he would support the Bramhanda as Koorma . Then Sesha chose the best among the mountains Rushyashringa took the form of Subramhanya and resided peacefully for many years in Vishnu Dhyana .
Katyayani devi yearning for a son came to this ranges and did penance for many years observing anantpadmanabh vrat . Sesha ,happy with her penance and austerity blessed her to conceive and also established a avesha of his roopa in the child. Thus blessed with the boon , Agni entered the virya of Shiva , Parvati Devi gave birth to a Son of six faces [ Shanmukha ] . That blessed son , bowing before the Parents and after obtaining their permission .went away for penance in the western direction , in the Kshetra of Parshuram , Rushyashrung Ashrama , Shanmukha ,seated in the tapasyaof Shesha antargata Anantapadmanabh Swamy . Since Kumaar had undertaken tapasya , this came to be known as Kumar parvat . And the river that flew from this place is known as Kumardhara. Andthe linga here is known as kukelinga . Those who know this will be relived of the pains of the world . Thus Men should try his best to serve Kumar .Those who pray Skanda seated on a peacock will achieve all the desired . Just by mere recital of this devata’s name relieves off the sins . ”
Shaunaka asked ” Hey Mahatma , How come this place of Parashuram became Rushyashringa Kshetra ? how did subramhanya come to kumar parvat ? Why did he stand here ? Kumaardhara ,where did it origin and where did it flow towards ,kindly narrate the mahima !”
Thus ends chapter 1 of Kuke kshetra puraana fron Skandapurana !!
