Symbolism of Flying Whisk or Chamara in Hinduism

Flying whisk or Chamara is associated with many Hindu gods and goddesses. It is a symbol of royalty and is associated with Goddess Ganga, Gayatri, Yamuna and Lord Vishnu.

Today, mostly Hindu priests and community leaders of some sects use Chamara.

Pictures of deities holding Chamara are very rare. They are also today not part of the murti (idol) worshipped.
