Sudharshana Jayanthi, is the birthday of supreme divine Sudharshana Chakra (wheel or discus), the mighty weapon of Lord Vishnu. This powerful weapon is carried by the preserver and sustainer archetype, Lord Vishnu, as a solid shield of righteousness which can confront all negative forces that obstruct your growth and success. The Sudharshana Jayanthi falls on Shukla Paksha Dasami (10th Waning Moon) in the Tamil month of Aadi (Jul – Aug).
The term Sudharshana in Sanskrit means ‘vision, devoid of illusion’. Sudharshana Chakra is known for its auspiciousness and ability to eliminate negative energies. Invoking this divine weapon of Lord Vishnu is believed to bestow the blessings of all the ten incarnations of Lord Vishnu. This sacred discus can help curing your illnesses and can relieve you from sins to attain Moksha (salvation). Revering Sudharshana Chakra, which is personified as Chakrathazhwar, on this special occasion can bless you with a healthy, victorious and blissful life.
There are a lot of mythological references where Lord Vishnu uses Sudharshana chakra to behead demons. But, there are only a couple of mythologies around the creation or the birth of Sudharshana Chakra. One such story goes on to explain how Lord Shiva gifted Lord Vishnu with Sudharshana Chakra to kill demons after his severe penance towards him. Another story explains how Vishwakarma, the chief architect of the celestial beings, created the Sudharshana Chakra by cutting down the brilliance of the Sun and created Sudharshana Chakra using the parts of the Sun’s radiance.
