Kamandalu or kamandal is an oblong water pot which yogis often use for storing drinking water. The water-filled kamandalu, which is invariably carried by ascetics, is stated to represent a simple and self-contained life. It is viewed as a symbol of ascetism.
The kamandalu is often depicted in hands of gods, who appear as ascetics, like Shiva, Krishna and Brahma and also water deities like Varuna, Ganga and Sarasvati. Several legends refer to the kamandalu. Vamana the dwarf avatar of god Vishnu, requests demon king Mahabali for three feet of land. The donation of the land is sanctified through pouring water through a kamandalu. When Sukra, the demons' preceptor, tried to prevent flow of water from the kamandalu by blocking the spout, Mahabali pierced the spout with a stick, which blinded Sukra. In Bhagavata Purana, king Satyavarta after initially put Matsya (Vishnu's avatar as a fish) which he found in the river into his kamandalu, to protect it from the big fish. Later, the fish expanded and protected the king from the great deluge. The Mahabharata records the god Dhanvantari brought Amrita in a kamandalu, when he emerged from the churning of the ocean (Samudra manthan). The Ramayana records the lord Hanuman disguised himself as a sage and fooling the demons to drink his urine stored in his kamandalu.
