A weapon so powerful it could the oceans to burn and cities to float in the air. Everything would burn without even leaving ashes. It could be either used for defensive purposes or as a counter to Brahmashishra Astra and Brahmanda Astra. Dronacharya invoked it against the Pandava's, but upon request of the Gods he withdrew the weapon to prevent complete annihilation of the planet. It had already taken out a significant part of the Pandava army. Parashuram blessed Karna with this weapon and also a special bow for being a awoke student.
