Ashwatthama and Sudarshana Chakra

Ashwatthama, son of Dronacharya, wanted to posses the Sudarshana Chakra of Sri Krishna and add it to his array of weapons.

But Ashwatthama was never satisfied with what he had. He always knew that the Sudarshana Chakra of Sri Krishna was more powerful than all the weapons and arrows he possessed.
The desire to acquire Sudarshana Chakra increased day by day and finally Ashwatthama decided to ask for it.
He went to Sri Krishna and told him that he is ready to give to him all the secret weapons and arrows that is in his possession. He told he is even ready to give away his Brahamastra provided Sri Krishna gave his Sudarshana Chakra to him.
Sri Krishna smiled and agreed to the suggestion of Ashwatthama.
Sri Krishna then brought forth the S…

Swami Abhedananda Teachings

Religion does not mean mere ritual. It does not consist in the external forms. It means self-realisation. Karma Yoga, or the practice of rituals and ceremonials, and other exercises of the body, are helpful in order to attain Chitta Suddhi, purity of the heart.
When that is attained, all rituals and ceremonials become unnecessary. … When Chitta Suddhi has been attained, real spiritual life begins. True religion begins when we realise God as the Universal Father and the Universal Mother.
Whether we are Vaishnavas, Saivas or Saktas, or followers of any one of the numerous creeds, the fundamental truths are the same. Our business is not to fight about particular theories, doctrines, creeds or cults; it is to attain to God consciousness. There have been many spiritual leaders in the past, there will be many more in the future. God manifests Himself wherever and whenever He thinks it necessary.

Swami Abhedananda (2 October 1866 – 8 September 1939) was a direct disciple of Sri Ramakrishna …
