Sammohana Astra (also known as Pramohana Astra)

Sommohana means "delusion" or "unconsciousness" in Sanskrit and "mesmerizing" in Malayalam. It is described as a weapon that can "deprive warriors of their senses." Most likely the weapon causes confusion/delusion or unconsciousness/sleep on a massive, battlefield wide scale. The Sammohana Astra is mentioned several times in the Mahabharata, Bhishma Parva section 77 under the name Pramohana Astra. In the story, Dhrishtadyumna unleashed the Pramohana Astra upon the enemy warriors depriving them of their senses. Drona later countered the effect of the weapon with his own weapon, Prajna Astra.
