The Vishnu Shankh is a very uncommon conch shell, which is said to resemble the Garuda; the Vahan or Celestial Vehicle of Bhagwan Vishnu. It is also shaped like an Ardha Chandra or Half Moon, which is why it is sometimes referred to as the Ardha Chandra Shankh. This conch shell is normally found on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, of which the conch shells found on the American Coast are said to be of the best quality. Apart from the coastal regions, the Vishnu Shankh can also be found in mountainous regions and the Kailash Mansarovar. If lucky enough to be in the possession of a genuine Vishnu Shankh, you can perform the Mantra Sadhana described below.
The Vishnu Shankh can be installed in the home or office on any day in the morning after having a bath and wearing clean clothes. The practitioner should place the Vishnu Shankh in front of him, chant the Mantra shown by me in the image 108 times using a Rudraksha Japa Mala and then blow the Shankh, and keep it in the house or office. The corner of the Ishanya Disha [North-Eastern Direction] is the most suitable place for keeping the Vishnu Shankh. The same Mantra can be chanted once daily in front of the Shankh.

For increasing beauty – Clean drinking water should be put inside the Vishnu Shankh at night and consumed in the morning on a regular basis. This is said to make the complexion smooth and glowing and enhance the facial looks of the practitioner. The same remedy, if performed by pregnant women is said to enhance the beauty of the child inside their wombs.
For getting relief from Heart and other diseases- Clean drinking water should be filled inside the Vishnu Shankh on Purmina [Full Moon Day] and the Shankh should be kept under the Moonlight at night. The water in the Shankh should be consumed in the morning for getting relief from Heart problems and other diseases and ailments.
Note- Scientifically speaking the Vishnu Shankh is rich in Phosphorus, Brimstone and Calcium content.
