Indradhanus – The Bow of Indra – Indra Dhanus in Hindu Religion

Indradhanus is the bow of Indra, the king of Devas, in Hindu religion. It is also the name used to refer to rainbow. Legend has it that Indra’s bow resembles the rainbow. The bow was also used by Manmatha (Kamdev) to break the meditation of Shiva after the death of Goddess Sati.
It is believed that Indra gave the bow to Kamdev to bring back Shiva into the world. When Shiva entered into deep mediation after the death of Sati, there was imbalance in the world and creation came to a stand still without Shiva and Shakti. So Indra gave the bow to Kamadev to create passion in Shiva
The God of love uses it to evoke love, affection, attachment and lust in men and women.

Knowledge from Bhagavad Gita

Giving up all desires born of the will, withdrawing the senses from every direction by strength of mind, attain tranquility little by little with the help of the buddhi armed with fortitude. Once the mind is established in the Atman, one should not think of anything else. Whenever the fickle and unquiet mind strays, withdraw it and restore it to the control of the Atman alone. (Bhagavad Gita – 6.24 – 6)
The unreal has no existence, the Real never ceases to be this truth about the nature of both is know by those who perceive the real nature of things. (Gita 2.16)
Constancy in Self-knowledge and an insight into the object of  true Knowledge,  that  is, God – this is declared to be knowledge; what is contrary to this is called ignorance. (Gita 13.1)
He that sees one God existing everywhere cannot injure another who is his own Self, and so attains the highest goal. (Gita 13.28)
