Agni

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Agni is the god of Fire and the twin brother of Indra.. he is the medium through which all offerings are made to the gods in Yagyas (fire-sacrifices) and it is he who gives way to new creation by ensuring destruction of all that is worn and broken.. Agni is generally portrayed as a red faced, bearded man riding a chariot driven by rams.. he resides in the third eye of Shiva and exists in three forms - Fire, lightening and the Sun.. He has seven fiery tongues and his favorite food is Ghee- the clarified butter used in fire sacrifices... he is a friend of the humans staying in their domestic fires and is immortal yet ever-young because everytime a fire is lit he is born again.. The picture in the background was taken by me at Juhu beach at the time of sunset...
