BEAD NO. 25

LORD VISHNU HOLDING ‘SUDARSHANA CHAKRAM (THE CELESTIAL WHEEL) STANDING WITH HIS CONSORT GODDESS LAKSHMI

BOTH LORD VISHNU AND GODDEDSS LAKSHMI ARE PORTRAYED IN STANDING POSITION IN THE BEAD. VISHNU IS HOLDING SUDARSHANA CHAKRAM IN HIS RIGHT HAND. LAKSHMI IS STANDING BEHIND HIS LEFT SHOULDER.

ACCORDING TO THE LEGENDS, VISHNU ACQUIRED THE POWERFUL SUDARSHANA CHKRAM FROM LORD SHIVA. THE MYTH – IT WAS THE HABIT OF A SECTION OF DEMONS CALLED DAITHYAAS TO HARASS THE SAGES AND GODS PERFORRMING ‘YAJNA (FIRE OBLATION)’. TO GET RELIEF FROM TORMENTATION, SAGES AND GODS APPROACHED VISHNU. VISHNU KNEW THAT HIS STRENGTH AND POWERS WERE NOT ENOUGH TO DEFEAT THE DAITHYASS, AS AT THAT TIME THEY HAD UNPARALLED STRENGTH.

VISHNU PROPITIATD LORD SHIVA WITH LOTUS FLOWERS GROWN IN THE MANASSAA LAKE. SEVERAL THOUSANDS OF YEARS PASSED. SHIVA WAS NOT PLEASED. VISHNU DECIDED TO RECITE A THOUSAND NAMES OF LORD SHIVA AND FOR THAT HE REQUIRED A THOUSANDS LOTUS FLOWERS. THUS HE ARRANGED THOUSANDS LOTUS FLOWERS AND STARTED RECITING THOUSAND NAMES OF LORD SHIVA. WITH THE RECITATION OF EACH NAME, HE OFFERED ONE LOTUS FLOWER. WHEN HE RECITED THE THOUSANDTH NAME OF LORD SHIVA, HIS HAND REACHED FOR THE LAST FLOWER. HE COULD NOT FIND IT. LORD SHIVA HAD DELIBDERATELY TAKEN AWAY ONE LOTUS FLOWER IN ORDER TO TEST VISHNU. VISHNU SEARCHED AND SEARCHED FOR THE THOUSANDTH FLOWER. BUT IN VAIN. ULTIMATELY HE PLUCKED OUT HIS ONE EYE AND OFFERED TO LORD SHIVA.

PLEASED WITH THIS ACT OF VISHNU, LORD SHIVA GAVE HIS SUDARSHANA CHAKRAM TO VISHNU, WITH WHICH VISHNU ANNIHILATED THE DAITHYAAS.
