Viniyogas (Meanings)


Agni is Fire of the Moon on its First Full Moon night. He is the Supreme Lunar presiding priest in the Vedas or Solar-Lunar Eternal Calendar. Indra is the Lord of the Second Full Moon day. Surya (the sun or full moon) is one of his embodiments.

In the later Hindu period Agni became Dik-pala (guardian of the southeast direction of the sky). Agni is often depicted as red, with two heads and seven hands and three legs riding on a ram or a chariot driven by goats. His attributes are an axe, torch, prayer beads and a flaming spear.
