Hinduism - What Is Chandiprakasha?

 





 ("Chandi effulgence") The spear of the Atala akhara, a specific group within the Naga class of Dashanami Sanyasis, is known by this name. 



The Dashanami Nagas are Shiva worshippers (bhakta) who are organized into akharas, or regiments, similar to an army. 



The Nagas' main profession until the beginning of the nineteenth century was as mercenary warriors, but they also had significant trade interests. 

In modern times, these roles have virtually vanished. 

The Atala akhara is symbolized by this specific spear, which is used by all of the akharas to express their organizational identity.
