Agni dev

 

Agnidev is god of fire. In early Hindu mythology, Agni is one of the most important of the Vedic gods. He is the god of fire, and much of his importance comes from the role of fire in sacrifices and rituals. As the fire which consumes the offerings to the gods, he is seen as the mediator between heaven and earth.


He was so important to the ancient Indians that 200 hymns in the Rig Veda are addressed to him, and eight of its ten books begin with praises dedicated to him.


To honor Agni, Hindus are expected to face fires in the proper direction for different purposes. When facing east, the fire should be used for sacrifices to the gods; when facing south, the fire should be used for sacrifices to the spirits of the dead. Fires should face west when used for cooking.

As Hinduism evolved over the centuries, Agni's status fell off dramatically. He became an incarnation of either Shiva or Brahma. Eventually he has come only to be called on by lovers.
