Vishnu appears on earth in various avatars, but only Rama and the Buuddha play a significant role. He contains and balances good and evil and preserves the divine order of the universe. He wears a seven-headed cobra and holds a lotus flower, conch shell, spinning disc and a mace. He also has a caste mark on his forehead.
