Jagatkarttṛ (जगत्कर्त्तृ) refers to the “creator of the universe” and is used to describe Kārttikeya (i.e., Kumāra—Śiva’s son), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.4.12 (“The story of Śiva and Pārvatī”).—Accordingly, as Viṣṇu said to Kārttikeya: “[...] You alone are the creator (jagatkarttṛ), sustainer and annihilator of the universe [tvameva karttā jagatāṃ ca bharttā tvameva harttā]. You, born of firegod, be pleased. Your cosmic image is identical with the universe. O son of Śiva, kinsman of the distressed, be pleased. O lord, protector of the gods, O lord, save us always. O merciful one, protector of gods, be pleased. After killing the Asura Tāraka along with his followers, O great lord, the gods have been freed from adversities by you”.
