The second month of the Tamil Solar cycle, the month Vaikasi and the Star Visagam of Libra and Scorpio zodiac, the full moon day is called as Vaikasi Visagam (Sanskrit name Vaisakha) which is celebrated with all fanfare associated with it across Tamilnadu. According to Hindu Puranas there were three asura (demon) brothers, Soorapadman, Singamuhan and Tarakan and they attained great powers through deep penances.
Murukan is worshiped and adored also as Subramanian, Shanmugan, Kartikeyan, Guhan Saravanan, Arumugan etc. As Murukan, He is the ever young and beautiful; as Subramanian, He is the Su Brahmanya the All-pervading spirit of the Universe the essence from which all things are evolved, by which they are sustained and into which they dissolve.
The peacock is symbolic of vanity and pride. The
serpent represents ego, the carnal personality of man which wants the mundane pleasures.
The ego is created by avidya or ignorance and this must be kept in check and
channeled to discover the Truth. The peacock holding the serpent within its
claws conveys this Truth. And finally the Vel is symbolic of the removal of the
negative and evil tendencies which veil the true Divine Self.

Panguni Uthiram has a very special importance for the Hindus. The chief highlight of the day is the celebrations that happen in the Muruga temples (Lord Subramanya).
