Legends says, Sudarshana Chakra is a spinning, disk-like weapon of Lord Sri Maha Vishnu which has 108 zigzag edges. The Sudarshana Chakra symbolize as an ayudhapurusha(anthropomorphic form). He is depicted as a fierce form of Vishnu. While the Sudarshana Chakra is depicted as a subordinate determine with Vishnu, it’s worshipped as an ayudhapurusha in its own shrine hooked up to the central temple.
According to the Puranas, Sudarshana Chakra is used for the final word destruction of an enemy. There is yet one more significance, the phrase Sudarshana means “vision of which is auspicious”. Hence Sudarshana is usually worshiped throughout Homas or rituals or spiritual occasions to push back negative powers or vibrations.
