Sudarshana Chakra Snanam Significance during Festivals

According to Hindu Scriptures, Sudarshana Chakra is a spinning, disk-like weapon with 108 serrated edges used by Lord Sri Maha Vishnu. The Sudarshana Chakra may be depicted as an ayudhapurusha(anthropomorphic form). He is depicted as a fierce form of Vishnu. While the Sudarshana Chakra is depicted as a subordinate figure with Vishnu, it is worshipped as an ayudhapurusha.

According to the Puranas, Sudarshana Chakra is used for the ultimate destruction of an enemy. There is yet another significance, the word Sudarshana means “vision of which is auspicious”. Hence Sudarshana is generally worshiped during Homas or rituals or religious events to ward off negative powers or vibrations. This is significant feature in performing chakra snanam to the holy disc during Brahmotsavams and other important festivals.
