4. One who limps

Deity- Vishnu

The Shravana Nakshatra is ruled by Lord Vishnu, the one who resides in the SheerSagara or the celestial waters (technically ocean of milk). He resides on a bed of snake called the Sheshnag and is always in the Yog Nidra. He happens to be in the process of sustenance while lying down in that position. Though he speaks very less, he hears all that there is and much more. He is said to be very accomplished in all that he does and is also has a very practical approach to situations and the problems associated with it. He is said to employ the principles of tact and diplomacy to get work done in as conducive a manner as possible. Lord Vishnu is said to be very structured and methodical in his operations. There is a part by part planning in his doing and the bigger picture reveals itself in its tangible results at the very end. Lord Vishnu is held in highest esteem for his sense of judgement and his advice. Lord Vishnu, however, is very cryptic in his communication and his words have a deeper meaning than that seen on the surface.
