You have heard of lord of wealth, lord of supreme power, etc., but have you heard lord of architecture? Yes. In Hinduism, we have Lord ‘Vishwakarma’- the lord of architecture and engineering. He is the son of the creator Lord Bramha. Lord Vishwakarma is the god of all craftsmen, architects, artisans, etc.
Vishwakarma God is the official creator of all God’s palaces. He is the designer of all flying chariots, vehicles, and weapons of all Gods. As per Sthapatyaveda, Lord Vishwakarma presides over sixty-four mechanical arts.
In India, all Hindu craftsmen, engineers, handcrafters, artists celebrate Vishwakarma Jayanti. The Vishwakarma puja takes place on the day of 16th/17th September each year.
A Vishwakarma idol is being set-up on the factory premises, mechanical stores, engineering and art colleges, or any domestic workshop. Devotees worship him to gain some productivity in business.
On this day, devotees enjoy varieties of kites flying, because it’s the occasion of colorful kites flying. Kite is associated with Lord Vishwakarma, as he holds a kite on his one hand.
On the other three hands, he carries an ax, a tiny hammer, and a lotus.
Lord Vishwakarma is the supreme power holder that he has created so many royal palaces for decades. He built ‘Swaga loke’ or heaven in Satya yuga, ‘Sone Ki Lanka’ (Golden Palace) in Treta Yuga, the city of ‘Dwarka’ in Dwapar Yuga, and Kali-yuga he made ‘Indraprastha’ and ‘Hastinapura’.
Vishwakarma puja is the sign of the upcoming Hindu festivals like Durga Puja, Navaratri, and Diwali.
If you own any business or store, you must worship Lord Vishwakarma for the rich productivity of your business and success.
