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.

There is in much of the world the belief that life is a burden, a feeling of penitence, that it is good to suffer, good for the soul. In fact, spiritual life is not that way at all.
