Topic: Shesha


  
  Shesha - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the Puranas Shesha is said to hold all the planets of the universe on his hoods and to constantly sing the glories of Vishnu from all his mouths.
He is generally depicted with a massive form that floats coiled in space, or on the universal ocean, to form the bed on which Lord Vishnu lies.
He is said to have loosened Mount Mandara, to enable it to be used in the churning of the ocean by the devas and asuras.

Shesha floats on the cosmic ocean and Lord Vishnu reclines on the coil of his tail.

While hitting the hookah is known to offer the smoker a smooth, mellow buzz, historically the tall, ornately designed water pipes have claimed a cultural currency beyond providing a "nic fix." They've long been used as a community-building device.
The duo hopes one day to have their own hookah bar but for now are content to work the Republic of Boulder patio, where they also sell hookahs, shesha and hookah-smoking supplies.
Considering that three bowls takes roughly three hours to cash, the sweet-tasting shesha is a much better option than those rancid American Spirits that usually cloud up Boulder's downtown patios.

As Adi Shesha expressed his wish to see the dance of Lord Shiva, Lord Vishnu readily agreed to grant his wish with a condition that Adi Shesha is born as human on the earth since he had a desire.
Accordingly Adi Shesha was born on the earth as sage Pathanjali.
And Lord Vishnu in the form of Ranganatha on Adi Shesha was consecrated facing east; next to Lord Nataraja’s sanctum to ever witness the divine dance.

 Abstracts from the Journal of the International Academy of Periodontology
Of this, 27.5% were cigarette smokers, 20.3% were Shesha smokers, 20.3% were Argela smokers, and 32% were non-smokers (females 24.2%: 74% males).
However, when comparing Shesha smokers to cigarette smokers it was found that Shesha smokers had a greater attachment loss (p= 0.0001), recession (p= 0.0001) and deeper pocket depth (p= 0.001) than cigarette and Argela smokers.
Since Shesha smoking is widely used among Saudi subjects of both sexes, additional studies should be conducted to study the effect of Shesha smoking on the periodontium.

There lived in the forest of Taragam ten thousand heretic rishis who did not believe in the existence of God and propagated that performance of work alone was sufficient to attain salvation.
With the view to convert them to faith, Shiva went there disguised as a yogi and accompanied by Vishnu disguised as his beautiful wife, and the great Serpent Shesha.
And as though to stress the point that the dance of the divine actor is indeed a sport of creation and destruction, at once infinite and purposeless-the gesture of gajahasta (hand as the elephant’s trunk).
