sheshanaag

shesh-shaayi vishnu (shesh par shayan karte vishnu)

kadroo se utpann kashyap ke putr jo naagon mein pramukh the. inke sahasr (hajaar) fanon ke kaaran inka doosra naam 'anant' hai. yeh sada paataal mein hi rahate the aur inki ek kala ksheerasaagar mein bhi hai jispar vishnu Bhagwan shayan karte hain. apni tapasya dvaara inhonne brahma se sampoorn pruthvi dhaaran karne ka varadaan praapt kiya tha. Lakshman ji sheshanaag ke hi avataar maane jaate hain.
