Lord Sudarshana is the manifestation of Lord Vishnu. He holds Sudarshana chakra on his rear right hand. Additionally, in his other three hands, he holds a conch, mace and a lotus flower.

The Sudarshana Chakra

The derivation of the word Sudarshana is from two Sanskrit words, “Su” meaning auspicious and “Dharshana” meaning vision. Hence, the word Sudharshana translates to “auspicious vision” or “divine vision”. According to Hinduism, the Sudarshana chakra is not only a weapon of destruction. Devotees also believe that the chakra clears the path to attaining salvation. The Sudharshana chakra has 108 blades. The blades find the evil and destroy them. As a result, this chakra is the most powerful among all of Lord Vishnu’s weapon. The disc also generates a lot of heat as it is an aspect of Lord Agni. According to the Vaishnavaites, Sudarshana Chakra is not just the representation of Lord Vishnu, it is also an object worthy of worship.

The Sudarshana Chakra contains a circular ring. The circle is surrounded by fire, thus representing the Sun god. The circular ring depicts the destruction of evil forces. It also represents the victory of good over evil. Additionally, this chakra also seeks out its enemies in the directions. As a result, it is considered the protector of Dharma.
