Ananta is the king and ancestor of all snakes on earth. He remains eternally peaceful and unphased by changing tides, and is found floating in the cosmic ocean, beneath the earth stabilizing the world. The name Ananta literally translates to endless and infinite, as he is all that remains in existence even after the universe is destroyed. He is believed to have brought the teachings of mind control (yoga) to earth in the form of Patanjali.
