Divya Ram Katha : Part - 2

Vishnu is called that king whose four arms are decorated with four different things- Lotus, Club, Ring, Conch-shell. A king who has lotus (character) in his kingdom; club at second for devils; ring at third through which he spread his culture. Related to conch-shell voice, a great aspect is considered. As this conch-shell voice is considered – when we invent the sound then the sound is echoed itself. As when a reciter, the pandit(scholar) of Vedas recites with sweetness then he recites first with Jata-reading, Mala (circular) reading, Vishang, Uddatt and then with anuddatt readings. In a kingdom of a king, Jata reading and mala reading of vedic hymns is recited. The prudents of a kingdom(country), devote themselves for the recitation. Prudent is called that person who devote himself for knowledge and actions and whose sayings and actions both are similar. A thought arises here – the prudents are called those who uplifted them from Tamogun(ignorance) and Rajogun(prosperity). A person who is uplifted and moves beyond Satogun(True knowledge) is called Yogi. That person is prudent (viveki). A king must have the knowledge, he should be prudent. If a king has affection for his sons and has not so much affection for his peoples of country then he must not be heir of the country. Here king means ruler. In a democracy system a prime minister or president are just like a king. When a judge (king) gives justice in his court and there is his own son at one place and at another is from the common people, and he gives the correct judgement, then that judgement is the judgement of god(supreme Power) himself. That correct judgement makes him a god(Deity) and he then becomes prudent in real and wise with knowledge.

Five things Kaam(Sensuousness), Krodh(Anger), Lobh(greed), Moh(Affection, love) and Ahankaar(Self conceit) are five mouths of the SheshNaag (Snake). Vishnu is that soul, scholar who controls and has victory on all these four that is why Vishnu is shown to sit on the snake of five mouths.
