snbndhit lekh bhagavan vishnu
any janakari ye apane sahash‍tr mukhon ke dvara niranh‍tar bhagavan ka gunanuvad karate rahate hain aur anadi kal se yon karate rahane par bhi aghate ya oobate nahin.

sheshanag bhagavan ki sarpavath‌ akriti vishesh hoti hai. sari srishti ke vinash ke pashchath‌ bhi ye bache rahate hain, isilie inaka nam 'shesh' hain. sarpakar hone se inake nam se 'nag' visheshan juda hua hai. sheshanag svarn parvat par rahate hain. shesh nag ke hazar mastak hain. ve nil vastr dharan karate hain tatha samasat devi-devataon se poojit hain. us parvat par tin shakhaon vala sone ka ek tal vriksh hai jo mahaprabhu ki dhvaja ka kam karata hai.[1]

ratri ke samay akash men jo vakrakriti akashagnga dikhaee padati hai aur jo kramash: disha parivartan karati rahati hai, yah nikhil brahmandon ko apane men samete hue hain. usaki anek shakhaen dikhaee padati hain. vah sarpakriti hoti hai. isi ko sheshanag kaha gaya hai. puranon tatha kavyon men shesh ka varn shvet kaha gaya hai. akashagnga shvet hoti hi hai. yahan 'oon' ki akriti men vishv brahmand ko gherati hai. 'oon' ko brahm kaha gaya hai. vahi sheshanag hai.

puranon men ullekhit

inaka akhyan vibhinn puranon men milata hai. kalika puran men kaha gaya hai ki pralayakal ane par jab sari srishti nasht ho jati hai tab bhagavan vishnu apani priya lakshmi ke sath inake oopar shayan karate hain aur unake oopar ye apani phanon ki chhaya kie rahate hain. inaka poorn phan kamal ko dhake rahata hai, uttar ka phan bhagavan ke shirabhag ka aur dakshin phan charanon ka achchhadan kie rahata hai. pratichi ka phan bhagavan vishnu ke lie vynjan ka kary karata hai. inake eeshan kon ka phan shnkh, chakr, nnd, khadg, garud aur yug toonir dharan karate hain tatha agney kon ke phan gada, padm adi dharan karate hain.

puranon men inhen sahasrashirsh ya sau phanavala kaha gaya hai. inake ek phan par sari vasundhara avasthit kahi gee hai. ye sari prithvi ko dhooli ke karn ki bhanti ek phan par saralatapoorvak lie rahate hain. prithvi ka bhar atyachariyon ke karan jab bahut pravardhit ho jata hai tab inhen avatar bhi dharan karana puta hai. lakshman aur balaram inake avatar kahe ge hain. inaka kahi ant nahin hai isilie inhen 'annt' bhi kaha gaya hai. gosvami tulasidas ne lakshman ki vndana karate hue unhen sheshavatar kaha hai :

bnrdaun lachhiman pad jalajata. sital subhag bhagat sukhadat..
raghupati kirati bimal pataka. dvnd saman bhayu jas jaka..
sesh sahasrasis jagakaran. jo avatareu bhoomi bhay taran..[2]

kadroo ke beton men sabase parakrami shesh nag tha. usane apani chhali man aur bhaiyon ka sath chhodakar gndhamadan parvat par tapasya karani arnbh ki. usaki ichchha thi ki vah is sharir ka tyag kar de. bhaiyon tatha man ka vimata (vinata) tatha sautele bhaiyon arun aur garud ke prati dvesh bhav hi usaki sansarik virakti ka karan tha. usaki tapasya se prasann hokar brahma ne use varadan diya ki usaki buddhi sadaiv dharm men lagi rahe. sath hi brahma ne use adesh diya ki vah prithvi ko apane phan par snbhalakar dharan kare, jisase ki vah hilana bnd kar de tatha sthir rah sake. shesh nag ne is adesh ka palan kiya. usake prithvi ke niche jate hi sarpon ne usake chhote bhaee, vasuki ka rajyatilak kar diya.[3]
