Sudarshana ashtotharam

Sudarshana ashtotharam

Translated by
P.R.Ramachander

(Sudarshana   is the wheel like weapon wielded by  Lord Vishnu. It seems that Sanjana  the  daughter of Viswakarma , the deva architect married lOrd Sun and due to the great heat of the sun was not able to live with him. Then as per the request of Sun God  , Viswakarma sawed the sun God and made him shine less  . Out of the dust collected    The Sudarshana Chakra     was made and given to Lord Vishnu as weapon.  It is considered as the most powerful weapon in Hinduism. It is supposed to have ten million spikes  in two rows moving in opposite directions.  It is told about Sudarasana Chakra that

 tvaṁ dharmas tvam ṛtaṁ satyaṁ
tvaṁ yajño ’khila-yajña-bhuk
tvaṁ loka-pālaḥ sarvātmā
tvaṁ tejaḥ pauruṣaṁ param (Srimad Bhagawatham)

"O Sudarśana wheel, you are religion, you are truth, you are encouraging statements, you are sacrifice, and you are the enjoyer of the fruits of sacrifice. You are the maintainer of the entire universe, and you are the supreme transcendental prowess in the hands of the Supreme Personality of Godhead. You are the original vision of the Lord, and therefore you are known as Sudarśana. Everything has been created by your activities, and therefore you are all-pervading”
        In many temples of  South India Sudarshana chakra has   separate temple and is reverentially   referred as  “Chakrathu Azhvar:
    Lord Bharatha the younger brother of Rama is  considered as  the incarnation of Sudarshana chakra .  There are some references saying that king Karthaveeryarjuna was another incarnation.The present royal dynasty ruling Thailand is called “Chakri dynasty” after the Sudarshana Chakra. A great fire worship addressing the Sudarasgana Chakra   is performed to attain, health, wealth and prosperity. It also is supposed to clean the mind and body of the person who performs the Homa .Let us pray   this great devotee  and greatest weapons   tocleanse ourselves of all sins.)
