I am worship (Day 1369)

I am the lucky one to have been a witness to both the Mahabharata and to the Ramayana and let me share that brothers Lakshmana, Bharata and Shatrughna are incarnations of Sheshnaag, Sudarshana Chakra and the Shankha. Lord Rama, as everyone knows, is one of the ten avatars of Lord Vishnu. Krishna, as the charioteer of Arjuna, blew me at the Kurukshetra battle front in the eighteenth or the nineteenth century.

Goddess Lakshmi was discovered during amritmanthan from the sea, so in that sense she is my soul sister.

I am Panchajanya.

I am Shanku Naga.

I have many forms, many names.

Some know me as the gaumukhi shankha…Some as Ganesha shankha…Some as kauri shankha…moti shankha and some others as heera shankha.

I represent one hundred zillion in number…I am one of the nine treasures of Lord Kuber, the God of wealth. His attendant, Shanknidhi, a corpulent dwarf seated in an easy posture always holds me in his hand.
