Deepak Chopra presents the tales of the immortal gods and goddesses of Indian myth who reign over humanity and wield the forces of the Universe. I was born with a fiery halo that threatened to undo the universe. Thus, Ganga the mighty mother-river bore me away from the Earth, deep into the uncharted heavens. I grew to manhood in the care of six maidens of the stars, the Kritika (Pleidas) of the night sky. Then, I returned to claim my rightful place in Svarga as heralded by an ancient prophecy. I am the slayer of demons and commander-in-chief of heaven's army, I am Kartikkeya, the son of Shiva. Deepak Chopra brings you a story that tells of the birth and rise of one of heaven's most formidable warriors, Kartikkeya, the god of eternal youth.
