Vishnu, The Preserver of Life

Freemasonry And The Ancient Gods

Vishnu the Preserver standing in a truncated vesica piscis. The Satapatbra-Brahmana says that when Vishnu rose to a pre-eminent position among the gods they became jealous, and, plotting against him, cut off his head. However, they soon became alarmed at his loss, and prayed the Asvins, or divine physicians, to restore him to life, which they did. He is also spoken of as the Sacrifice both in the Vedas and elsewhere, and in this aspect is worshipped as Yajna-Narayana. It will be remembered that our J. W. corresponds with Vishnu and that H.A.B. likewise held that office. (Note the attendant.)
