Srimate Ramanujaye Namaha!

Namskaaram..

Adiyen woud like to know the meaning of Paanchajanya and why it is named so..

Online sources state the story of killing demon Pancajanya (why the demon was named so)  and taking his shell.. But this conch is an eternal paraphernalia of Perumaal. So not clear.

Kindly clarify.

Dhanyosmi

The above question is not very practically relevant so i may not raise it normally.. But it was asked by my niece to me during discussion of 1st chapter of Bhagavat Gita.. So  I said i will check with others and update.

Srimate Ramaanujaye Namaha,

Finally got the answer for this question in Hari Vamsam Audio 85 (number in enpani app).

While trying to Bring back Sandeepamuni’s son, Krishna fights a Asura called Panchajan. The conch born in the sea and later grew in Panchajan’s body was later acquired by Krishna. So it is called Paanchajanya.

Hope i heard it correctly, if otherwise, those who hear the above audio can correct it.
