A loving god who cares for those who love him. Known in his avatars of Rama and Krishna, there are eight other recognized avatars (including the Buddha). Vishnu’s chief consort is Lakshmi, goddess of wealth and fortune. As Shiva is known for his lingam, Vishnu is known by his saligrama (a fossilized ammonite from the Gandaki River) and normally holds a conch shell, a chakra, a mace and a lotus. He rides the bird Garuda and is often seen resting on the world serpent Ananta.
Vishnu is regarded as a major god in Hinduism and Indian mythology. He is thought as the preserver of the universe while two other major Hindu gods Brahma and Shiva, are regarded respectively, as the creator and destroyer of the universe.
