Kleśakara (क्लेशकर) refers to “one who harrasses (the worlds)”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.4.10 (“Boasting of Tāraka”).—Accordingly, as Kumāra (Kārttikeya) fought with Tāraka-Asura: “[...] Possessing the brilliance of Śiva, Kumāra with his spear struck Tāraka who had harrassed the worlds (loka-kleśakara). Immediately the Asura Tāraka the ruler of the hosts of Asuras, although very heroic, fell on the ground with all his limbs shattered. The great warrior Tāraka was slain by Kumāra. O sage, even as all were looking on, he passed away. [...]”.
