The unknown and untold story of Krishna’s Sudarshan Chakra
Today, we have come up with the story behind Sudarshan
Well, Sudarshan Chakra is a special weapon used by Lord Vishnu. It is a spinning, disc-like weapon and has 108 serrated edges. The Sudarshan Chakra has the powers to destroy anything in its path.
In fact, the Sudarshan Chakra is the only divine weapon which is constantly in motion. It could perform millions of rotations every second and has the capability to travel several million yojanas (1 Yojana = 12 km) at the very blink of an eye. It is not thrown, but with willpower, it is sent against the enemy.
The literal meaning of Sudarshan Chakra is “one that has auspicious vision.”
In the Vedic period, the Sudarshan Chakra was regarded as Lord Vishnu’s symbol of the wheel of time. However, by the late medieval period, Sudarshan Chakra emerged as “Ayudha Purush” representing a fierce form of Lord Vishnu and was regarded as the weapon of the destruction of the enemies.
In Tamil, the Sudarshan Chakra is called as the “Chakkrath Azhwar” meaning Ring or Circlet of God.
