Symbolism of Sudarshana Chakra of Vishnu – Symbolic Meaning of Discus or Sudarshan Chakra

Sudarshana Chakra or discus is the most powerful weapon in the possession of Hindu god Vishnu. There is deep symbolic meaning attached to Sudarshan Chakra. We might think Vishnu’s Sudarshan Chakra is for vanquishing enemies and evil forces like demons. However, the chakra is set into motion to eliminate internal enemies of human beings such as anger, lust and greed and to help them achieve bliss on earth.



Here is a look at the various symbolism of Sudarshana Chakra.

As per Vamana Purana Sudarshana is Kala Chakra.

It had twelve spokes representing twelve months. These twelve spokes are presided by twelve deities. The central nave of the discus represented six seasons.

As per Vishnu Purana, the Sudarshana Chakra symbolizes extremely agile mind which can defeat even wind.
Some scholars are of the view that it is the luminous disk of sun itself.

Story of Kaikasi

Kaikasi was the beautiful daughter of Sumali, who was a Rakshasa chieftain. Her father asked her to take Sage Vishravas as her husband so that she can have strong and powerful children.

Sumali and other rakshasas were thrown out of Lanka and they returned only after they agreed to accept Kubera as the king of Lanka. Kubera was the son of Sage Vishravas.

Kaikasi obeyed her father’s orders and reached to the ashram of Sage Vishravas on an evening. The sage was preparing for evening prayers and yajna. The sage soon realized that she has arrived with the intention of getting married him.

He asked Kaikasi to wait for an opportune time, as lovemaking in the evening will produce violent offspring. However, Kaikasi was adamant.

The sage then fulfilled her desire. She then stayed with the Sage Vishravas.
Kaikasi then gave birth to Ravana, Kumbhakarna, Surpanakha and Vibhishana.

Love is the center and attachment is the periphery – Mata Amritanandamayi

Beauty lies in the heart. Love towards everyone gives real beauty, enhancing both the giver as well as the receiver. The loveliness of our eyes is not in the eyeliner, but in a compassion filled glance. The smile that lights up a face brimming with love is the most beautiful in the world.

Am I really in love, or am I too attached? Contemplate on this question as deeply as you can. Most people are craving for attachment, not real love. In a way, we are betraying ourselves. We mistake attachment for love. Love is the center and attachment is the periphery. Aim for the center.

Most of us are always thinking about the losses in life. We forget about the greatest gain that we can have – that is love. Let your mind open up fully, and you will experience love all its fragrance and beauty.
