Agni - God of Fire by molee Agni - God of Fire by molee
Agnimeele Purohitam Yajnasya Devamritvjam Hotaram Ratnadatamam

Glory to you oh Agni! chief priest of sacrfice!the divine the ministrant, who presents teh oblations to the Gods and is possessor of great wealth!


Agni is one of the most important deities in the Pantheon of Gods from Indian Mythology, though he is one the most underplayed as well in the current era.
Agni not only signifies the elemental fire, but he is also th spiritual fire that makes the cosmos work, in fact the Vedas give an Idea as to Agni being the creator of the universe as well as its destroyer.
Agni is called Vaisvanara which really means "universal man" but int he later scriptures this epithet of Agni has been downplayed into the fire that digests our food.
Agni is also called Jatavedas for he knows all and is omniscient!

In the Rig-Veda he is described as having three heads,three legs,seven arms, four horns,seven tongues and flaming hair.

Hinduism seems to have a lot of beings with extra limbs.

Kinda mesmerized by all the fire, though.
