New Delhi: The conchs are of great importance in the worship accomplished in the eternal tradition because the conch is very dear to the god Vishnu. Lord Vishnu and Mother Lakshmi are believed to reside in this corner of the house where the conch is played.
It is said that Lord Vishnu descended under the name of Sri Krishna during the time of the Mahabharata and that he had a conch called Panchajanya. The conch shell is said to have been one of the 14 gemstones that emerged during the churning of the sea, which is why it is also known as Ratna.
Since Mother Lakshmi was born from the churning of the sea, the conch is therefore considered to be the brother of Mother Lakshmi.
There are two types of conch.
- Clockwise conch shell
- Counterclockwise conch shell
