The colorful deities and demons of India...

VÂSUKI

Hindu Snake Spirit

The Divine Snake

He is King of the Nagas and Shiva wears him like a necklace.

He may be divine but that didn’t stop the Devas and Asuras using him like a piece of old rope to churn the primordial Milk Ocean.

The role of Universal Divine Snake is not as glamorous as you might think.
