I am Shankha (Day 1386)

I was originally used as a war trumpet. Kings and warriors declared war open blowing my trumpet on the battle field and closed war at sunset with my trumpet again.

I am identified with the deities. Seers believe that I am blown to invoke Lord Shiva and there is a special connection between us which is evident from the similarity in our names.

I am Shankara.

I am associated with Lord Shiva.

I am associated with Lord Vishnu.

I am the abode of Goddess Lakshmi, who is the goddess of wealth and consort of Vishnu and because I emerge from the water, I am also regarded as a symbol of female fertility and associated with serpents.
