TEXT 221

astra-dhṛti-bheda—nāma-bhedera kāraṇa
cakrādi-dhāraṇa-bheda śuna, sanātana


astra-dhṛti — of holding the weapons; bheda — difference; nāma-bhedera — of differences of names; kāraṇa — the cause; cakra-ādi — of weapons, beginning with the disc; dhāraṇa — of holding; bheda — differences; śuna — please hear; sanātana — O Sanātana.


“My dear Sanātana, just hear from Me as I tell you how the different viṣṇu-mūrtis hold Their weapons, beginning with the disc, and how They are named differently according to the placement of the weapons in Their hands.
