Our Milky Way galaxy – is it the form of Vishnu’s Sudarshana Chakra?
What is Sudarshana? Lord Vishnu has a weapon called the Sudarshana Chakra. It is a sort of whirlygig that he throws at enemies. When the whirlygig kills the enemy, they get moksha (liberation). It is a wonderful weapon that confers blessings.
The Sudarshana havan brings the blessings of Sudarshana to those who participate. The mantras used in the havan invoke the vibration of the Sudarshana chakra. The Sudarshana havan (fire ceremony) is thought to be especially good for health, especially vision. This is one of the few times participants will be allowed to offer directly into the sacred fire. This is the havan for worshippers of Lord Venkateswara.
