2)      Discus (Sudarshana Chakra) it means a wheel or force field.It is also the symbol of the mind. It was made by Lord Shiva and gifted to Lord Vishnu as a token of love. The story of Lord Vishnu's most excellent devotion to Lord Shiva is relayed in a story where Lord Vishnu offered a thousand lotuses to Lord Shiva every day. One day in order to test the sincerity of Lord Vishnu, Lord Shiva hid one of the lotuses. When Lord Vishnu discovered that He was one lotus short, in order to complete his vrata he plucked one of his eyes out and offered it to Lord Shiva. Lord Shiva became highly pleased and gifted Sudarshana Chakra to Lord Vishnu.
