Vishnu in Ocean with Ananta Sesha, the "Thousand-Headed" Snake

Depicted here with fifteen, in the Vaishnava tradition Ananta Sesha is said to have a thousand heads, on which he carries the planets.

Image of Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami
Performing daily sadhana, keeping good company, pilgrimaging to holy places, seeing to others' needs--these evoke the higher energies, direct the mind to useful thoughts and avoid the creation of troublesome new karmas.
—Gurudeva
