The shanka (conch) and the chakra (disc) are integral to Vaishnavite iconography. These implements are to be found in the hands of Lord Vishnu, the deity responsible for cosmic projection, and as such are sacred symbols in Hindoo life and ideology. The former is the curvaceous, diamond-shaped implement that you see on this page, while the latter is the discoid object that accompanies it. Fashioned from superior quality brass, these would be valuable additions to the space of a true abider of the Hindoo philosophy.
The shankha occupies pride of place not only in Lord Vishnu’s hand but also in the altar of every Hindoo. It is the receptacle of nada, the cosmic stream of dhvanee (sound) that runs through the entirety of life, adding continuity to its apparent discreteness. The chakra stands for the cyclical nature of life and being, the fact that time itself is a full circle because the events that characterise it return to their perceived starting point. Positioning the shankha and chakra apparatus in a corner of your space would suffuse it with life-affirming energy.
