Lord Vishnu sitting on Sheshnag (serpant) mixed metal alloy idol
The mythlogy talks about two faces of Bhagwan Vishnu. On one hand he is shown as quiet, pleasant and gentle. But his second face is dangerous where he is shown in a comfortable position sitting on the king of snake- the Sheshnag.
This resting posture of Bhagwan Vishnu on Sheshnag indicates that every moment of life is related to the duties and responsibilities of man. The most important of all of them include duties towards family, social and economic responsibility. To fulfill these duties one has to make a lot of effort and go through many difficult and tough times which Sheshnag portrays and creates anxiety in man. The quiet face of Lord Vishnu inspires us to keep calm and be patient in these tough times. As we know human life is full of problems, infinite desires, plenty of hurdles and problems which create a lot of stress and tension. Hence, Lord Vishnu’s message to sit peacefully on Sheshnag depicts that don’t become restless during problems of life but face them with great peace and calm as they will soon vanish.
