Adyudhapurusha with Vaishnava Icons/Weapons

An ayudhapurusha is generally depicted as a two-armed figure, often a dwarf, holding or surrounded by the weapons of a particular Deity. The most popular Ayudhapurushas are associated with the God Vishnu and appear in his iconography.

Our religion tells us that because we love God Siva, we love one another, for God Siva loves all of us. Our religion tells us that God Siva is like a father and a mother, not a vengeful God, but a God of love who helps us.
