However, there is a slight controversy to the last name. It is also called Adhomugam ( Source : http://www.tamilbrahmins.com/translations-meanings/8231-need-information-lord-shivas-sixth-face.html). Some people believe it is beyond the comprehension of human mind, other proclaim four faces as the 4 directions, 5 th one facing upwards and the 6 th one facing the earth and can’t be seen, while still other consider Godess Shakti as the sixth face.

But one this is for sure, he has six faces and six sparks from the 3rd eyes of six faces of Shiva resulted in the birth of Lord Murugan to Kill Suran (Sura Samharam).

    Lord Shiva is the god of all. He balances everything in the world, which is very well depicted in these lines :
    सृष्टि एवं प्रलय के संतुलन की परिभाषा भी शिव के परिवार के सदस्यों के वाहन पर दृष्टि डालने मात्र से ही स्वतः परिभाषित हो जाती है| गणेशजी का वाहन मूषक है, तो कार्तिकेय मयूर पर सवार विचरते है एवं नाग शिव की शोभा बढाता है| कौन कहता है की नाग, मूषक को निगल जाता है एवं मयूर, नाग को स्वयं के आहार के रूप मैं ग्रहण करता है? यह मात्र तो शिव की लीला है कि स्वभाव से विपरीत होने पर भी सभी वाहन रूपी जीव एक ही परिवार को संग ले उनके साथ विचरते हैं|
