Vaikunta - The Abode of Vishnu


Vishnu's abode is Vaikunta, whose entrance is guarded by the two Gandharvas Jaya and Vijaya. Here, Vishnu is sleeping on the body of an enormous thousand-headed serpent called Adisesha. The serpent is floating in a sea of milk. Vishnu's wife Laxmi is by his side, pressing his feet and lulling him to sleep.
