Sri Subrahmanya Hrudhayam
(The heart of Lord Subrahmanya)
( I was made aware of this great stotra by Mr. Michael Janus, who is a German interested in Hinduism. When I asked him why this stotra , he replied
“Since I read about Lord Skanda I feel a great affinity
for Him. He likes to help unlucky people.
In zoroastrian religion He is the same deity called "Raschne Rast".
There are different stotras like kavachas for a Deva, but I guess each deity has only one known hRdayastotra, which, it seems, is the most dear one for the regarding Deva.”.My thanks to him.)
