Brahmadanda - The Stick of Brahma



Brahmadanda is a staff (stick) which belongs to Lord Brahma. A Brahmastra can only be stopped by a Brahmadanda. It must be noted that the term Brahmadanda is also used to refer to the staff in the hands of an ascetic or a Sage. The power and strength of the Sage is concentrated in the staff.

Legend has it that Vishwamitra had used several arrows against Sage Vasishta including the famous Brahmastra. But all the arrows were destroyed by the Brahmadanda.

Brahmadanda has the power to stop any weapon.
