    -The Discus is the constantly turning wheel of time, which inexorably Destroys all that has name and form.
  • The Mace Destroys Unrighteousness (Adharma).
  • The Bow as the tamasic aspect of ego and
  • The Arrows as the sensory and motor organs.
  • Iron Bar represents Restraint or self-control.
