Subramanya Bhujangam சுப்பிரமணிய புஜங்கம்

Subramanya Bhujangam is the hymn composed by Adi Sankara in praise of Lord Subrahmanya Swami of Thiruchendur, TamilNadu, India. When the Saint was affected with some disease, Lord Shiva appeared in his dream and instructed to visit Thiruchendur. Accordingly the Saint came before the Lord and found some divine rays emanating from the idol. Immediately he commenced to compose and recite Subramanya Bhujangam before the Lord. The temple town is located at the Bay of Bengal seashore. 'Tiruchendur' or 'Holy city of sandal' is one of the SIX bastions of Lord Subramanya.

What is the meaning of the term 'Bhujangam'? The term 'Bhujangam' indicates the shape and movement of the 'serpent'. The verse in this stotram is composed like the movement of a serpent. Lord Subramanya, also known as Lord Muruga is also conceived and worshipped as a great divine serpent. You may witness this kind of worship at the Kukke Subrahmanya temple located in the Sullia taluk, Karnataka State, India and the Lord is indeed worshipped in this manner.
