Legends say that Chandra or the moon stands for highlighting medicinal values in all living beings including plants. Chandra is described as Lord Vishnu, the invisible architect who found remedies for all ailments of persons and plants.
The Bhagavat Geeta also mentions “Nakshatrana Aham Shashi” (I am the moon in the constellation) as the Lord referred Himself to Moon. The Chandra Prabha Vahanam signifies that its very sight will provide soothing relief to devotees from physical and mental worries.
