Lord Vishwakarma

Lord Vishwakarma picture

Lord Viswakarma is the Devine Architect of the whole universe. He is the personification of the creative power that welds heaven and earth together. He is the son of Brahma and is the official architect of all Gods palaces, flying chariots and their weapons.

Lord Viswakarma is the brain behind the invention of STAPATHYA VEDA or the science of Mechanics and architecture. He was the perfect blend of Black Smith, Carpenter, Bronze Smith, Sculpture, Gold Smith and above all a fashion designer.

Lord Viswakarma has built cities like the golden city of Lanka, Dwaraka, Indraprasta and designed weapons like the Discuss of Lord Vishnu, Trident of Lord Shiva, the lance of Karhikeya and also the famous weapons like Agneyasthra. According to the legends Viswakarma's daughter Sanjana was married to Surya, the Sun. As she was unable to endure the heat and the brightness of Sun, Viswakarma placed the Sun on his lathe and cut away the brightness by 1\8th. The fragments that fell on the earth were used in making the above weapons.

Viswakarma infused his diverse creative power in to his first generation offspring’s namely Manu, Maya, Thwasta, Shilpi and Viswagna to carry out the continuous process of creation. They specialized in different forms of craft; Manu in black smithy, Maya in carpentry, Thwasta in non-ferrous metal casting, Shilpi in sculpture and Viswagna in gold smithy. Satisfied with the performance, Viswakarma made a Sarvamedha Yaga (A universal sacrifice) in which he offered all creature and ultimately himself too. This is a divine cyclic process of destruction and renewal of all cosmic life and matter.

Viswakarma is the presiding deity of all craftsmen, who observe September 17th as the Viswakarma day and perform pooja.

The subsequent generations of offsprings followed the profession of their sires and thus five subcasts (Gothras) came in existance The deliberate attempt of ancestors to retain the technological excellence, wealth and assets with in the same gothra resulted in prohibiting inter-gothra marriage. This custom is still continued, even though none of the gothra do have the monopoly of any craft at present.

Viswakarma's settled in metros and other cities are few in numbers and find it very difficult to get alliance from the same gothras. Under the circumstances, it is imperative to encourage inter-gothra marriages. This will strengthen our community and create a sense of oneness among the different gothras of the Viswakarma Community.
