The snake is feared, reviled, revered, and honored. The Hindus tell a story of Adisesha. Adisesha is the snake of all snakes, and the companion and bearer of Lord Vishnu:
The world is over-run with demons. They are wreaking havoc on the land and all beings. The angels come to Lord Vishnu and ask him to destroy the demons. Vishnu replies,"I cannot destroy the demons because I created them just as I created you." And so, Adisesha lends himself to turn the ocean into a swirling vortex so that the Nectar may rise and destroy the demons that Vishnu created.
