Krishna and Sudaksina
When Kasi was killed by Krishna, his son Sudakshina vowed to take
revenge. He prayed to Shiva to help him. Pleased with his devotion,
Shiva advised him to perform black magic and acquire an evil spirit to
kill his enemy.
Accordingly, Sudaksina performed a demonic sacrifice. After a while, Daksinagni, the demon, emerged from the blazing fire. It had long sharp teeth, a huge red tongue, and a blazing trident.
Following Sudaksina's instruction, the demon went to Dwarka. As
he placed his huge steps, the city trembled and all the people fled. The
guards rushed to inform Krishna about the appearance of this fearsome
demon. Recognising Daksinagni, Krishna flung the Sudarshan Chakra at
him. Seeing the Chakra, the demon fled. If the effects of black magic
fail, the demon returns to kill its creator. Accordingly, Daksinagni
went to kill Sudaksina while the chakra followed . After his death, the
chakra returned to Dwarka.
