Is Surdarshan Chakra mentioned In Vedic literature?


Yes surdarshan chakra was called Vishnu s chakra in ancient texts including RIG Veda and even in valmiki Ramayana it is called Vishnu s Chakra.

He, like a rounded wheel, hath in swift motion set his ninety racing steeds together with the four.Developed, vast in form, with those who sing forth praise, a youth, no more a child, he cometh to our call(Rig veda 1.155.6)

The word Chakra is translated as wheel,even Wikipedia says in Yajurveda vishnu s chakra is mention but till now i could not find a refernce in yajur Veda.
