Viniyogas (Meanings)


Vishnu is regarded as a friend of Indra who created the circle divided into for parts of 90 degrees each. He is the preserver of the Vedic universe and Solar-Lunar calendar rituals. In Sanskrit the word Vishnu means that which pervades every thing. He is described as dark or blue in complexion. His four hands hold the Shankha (conch shell), Chakra (disc like wheel), Gada (mace) and Padma (lotus).

Sankha that is believed to spread the divine sound (anahata-nada) “OM”. The Chakra signifies the kalachakra, the Year or the Big Time cycle, which is considered his deadly weapon. His vehicle is a divine bird Garuda. He rests on a huge coiled serpent called Shesha, which represents the serpentine way of the Moon and other planets. His consort is Lakshmi (goddess of wealth).
