  • Shesha is the king of all Nagas (serpent deities), one of the primal beings of creation, and an avatar of the Supreme God. Shesha holds all the planets of the Universe on his hoods and he constantly sings the glories of Vishnu from all his mouths. Shesha is depicted with a massive form that floats coiled in space, or on the ocean of milk, to form the bed on which Vishnu lies. It is said that when Shesa uncoils, time moves forward and creation takes place. When he coils back, the universe ceases to exist. His name means "that which remains", because when the world is destroyed at the end of the aeons, Shesha remains as he is.
