Hinduism - What Is The Kaustubha?


The jewel that the deity Vishnu wears on his breast in Hindu mythology.

One of the most valuable items created by churning the ocean of milk is the Kaustubha gem.

The goddess Lakshmi, the Kamadhenu or wishing-cow, and the elixir of immortality are among the other goods (amrita).

The Kaustubha gem, which Vishnu has, is a representation of his strength and supremacy over the entire verse.

Also see Tortoise avatar.

Hinduism - Who Is The Kamadhenu In The Hindu Pantheon?


Dhenu is a goddess who takes the appearance of a cow in Hindu mythology and has the ability to fulfill all of one's desires (kama).

The mother of all cattle, the Kamadhenu, is revered.

She is linked with offering food presents, and hence is a continuation of all cows' food gifts.

Kamadhenu is the property of the sage Jamadagni in Hindu mythology.

Jama dagni's son, Parashuram avatar, circles the world twenty-one times in an effort to wipe away the kshatriya (kingly) class when she is stolen by a local king.
