Trisiras

Trisiras The Mahabharata tells of Three-headed (Trisiras) Visvarupa, whose three sets of triple-eyes were severally intent on the Vedas (Sattva-guna), Wine (Rajas-guna), and the World (Tamas-guna). Indra divided those heads, who are the three sons of Atri, releasing three birds: three little Hamsas, named Kapiñjala (Heathcock), Kalavinka (Cuckoo), and Tittiri (Partridge).
