From the chilambu (anklet) worn by Parvati nine saktis were produced and with the help of Lord Siva these saktis were transformed into nine brothers of Lord Murugan. Veerabahu was one of them.
Lord Siva went to Saravana Poikai with Parvati, who embraced Lord Murugan, nursed him with her milk and brought him before Lord Siva.
Siva took Murugan in his arms and made Murugan sit with him and Parvati. Brahma, Visnu and Indra were pleased and showered flowers upon Lord Murugan.
