  1. The Pleiades Star Cluster.

    Murugan was raised by the six Krittika, or stars, and is hence called ‘Karthikeya’. The Subaru Logo consists of six stars representing Pleiades – even its name refers to it, I think.

  2. Company took its name from the star cluster Pleiades which in hindu mythology corresponds to Kartika and lord Murugan is called by that name.

  3. Subaru – Japanese term identifying cluster of six stars – Pleiades cluster. Also signifies the merger of companies which formed the Fuji Heavy Industries Ltd.
    Karthikeyan – Pleiades in India is referred to as Krittika and Lord karthikeyan was raised by the krittikas after birth.

  4. The pleiades star cluster.
    Subaru is the japanese word for Pleiades and the logo depicts the stars in this cluster.
    In Indian Mythology, Krittika is the equivalent of pleiades. Lord Kartikeya derives his name from the krittikas. Also, the ruling deity of pleiades in Indian Myth is Agni. Agni had a role in lord Kartikeya’s birth too (He carried the divine sparks from lord shiva to the forest of Sharavana where the krittikas took care of the six babies that eventually went on to become Kartikeya)

    The number 6

  6. Visual 1- Lord Karthikeya or Murugan. He was born out of a magical spark created byLord Shiva, and his name means “him of the Pleiades”.

    Visual 2- Logo of the automobile company Subaru. ‘Subaru’ is the Japanese name of the star cluster ‘Pleiades’ . The logo depicts the six stars of the Pleiades cluster that are visible to the naked eye. It was chosen to represent the five smaller companies that merged into one single entity.

    Connection is Pleiades the star cluster.

  9. 1. The picture of Lord Muruga who is the son of Krittikka (the star cluster Pleiades)
    2. Subaru logo refers to the same star cluster pleiades

  10. Muruga or Subramanya from which the constellaion Pleiades Muruga is named. The second pic is a Japanese car maufacturer named after this constellation earning the name Subaru.(from subramanya)

  11. Kartikeya -> Krittika -> Pleiades -> Subaru

  12. Karthikeyan, so called as he was raised by six sisters called Krittika. Krittika refers to the star cluster Pleiades, which in Japanese is called Subaru. The cluster also features on the Subaru logo.

  13. The picture on right is that of Lord Murugan. According to the Mahābhārata, Murugan was born to Agni and Svāhā, after the latter impersonated six of the seven wives of the Saptarṣi and made love to him. The Saptarshi, hearing of this incident and doubting their wives’ chastity, divorced them. These wives then became the Krittikā.

    Subaru is the name of a star cluster in the Taurus constellation. Subaru is the Japanese name of Pleiades or Krittika, and is said to be the inspiration of the auto major Subaru.

    (Pretty lousy explaination I guess… )

    Connect : open star cluster Pleiades

    Subaru logo is influenced by the star cluster. It depicts the six stars of the Pleiades cluster

    Hindu Mythology Equivalent of Pleiades is Krittika, Who are particularly revered in Hindu mythology as the six mothers of lord Karthikeyan

  15. subaru’s logo represents the pleiades constellation, which in India is called as the Kritika stars.

    Muruga is also called Karthikeya as he was brought up by the Kritika apsaras, who are represented in the constellation

  16. Pleiades constellation- Karthika and Subaru

  17. That’s Lord Kartikeya, the name is derived from Kartika or Pleiades. The Pleiades also forms the Subaru logo.

  18. The connection is Pleiades Star cluster, which is on the Subaru logo (Subaru is the Jap name for the cluster). The Indian name is “Krittika”, after the 6 sisters who brought up Lord Muruga’Kartikeya.

  19. Subaru Logo shows the 6 stars of Pleiades
    Lord Murugan was raised by the 6 Karthigai women

    The set of 6 Karthigai stars is called Pleiades.

  20. This must have something to do with the constellation on the Subaru logo, Orion or Pleiades or something. Maybe Karthikeya/Muruga ( in the 1st pic ) is the head honcho of said constellation ?

  21. kartikeya > kritika nakshatram >pleiades
    jap for pleiades=subaru.

  22. Pleiades is the connect

  23. The Pleiades.

    Japs call it Subaru.

    The 6 krithikas who raised Muruga are the stars that make up that constellation.

  24. The Pleiades.

    Japs call it Subaru and the 6 krithikas who raised Muruga are the stars that make up that constellation.
