It words are said during prayers and religious gatherings. Sahastra Namavali: Is also a stotram, which constitutes a list of 1008 titles of Ishwara. Agni is also the “messenger” in most of the suktas.

Though he yoked the horses of lights in sky, he is not merely the dawn nor Ashvins. This concept is the most important in Rigveda; and this also echoes in Yajurveda referring to Agni being the lowest, and Vishnu being in most exalted realms. There is no contradiction anywhere. Though Ashvins are really credited for bringing the dawn and through the “horses” (the speed change of colour in dawn sky; the speed entrance of spiritual dawn), this feat is also generously transferred to Indra, whereby Indra yokes his bay horses in dawn sky. Though he destroys every blocks he is not merely the Agni, though he vivifies he is not merely soma, though he inspires the poetic minds, he is not merely Savita, though he has created the world he is not merely Tvashta, though he is the sole ruler of all, he is not simply Varuna, though he protects Rta he is not merely Mitra-Varuna, though he releases the cows and is lord of horses, he is not merely Ushas, though he is everything, he is not merely everything – he cannot be praised fully. The word karma is used in general denoting an action and its result. He also destroys Shambara’s castles. Vasana: an inherent nature or flavor of a human nature that clings to a jiva and carried over to other lives. Thus, the deeds of poor Vishnu by creating the world and spanning it to measure also get generously transferred to Indra. (? It is organized into 10 books, called mandalas.

This is the reason each individual is different by birth, though the options and opportunities presented might be same, the choice made usually depend on the inherent vasana or fear (which is also an integrated part of vasana). But you can see that in the same way as above, you can take “what” separate. (The blocks in mind) Thus he also is a provider of a wide earth (wide physical mind), again masking Agni. It’s through them that this truth is shared as Shruti and Kalpa(m). This can be seen as the vivifying soma poured by Indra and also the result of Indra not allowing the dark clouds to hold waters – killing of Vrtra who himself is the raincloud and piercing him by lightnings… In each of this “slaying of the malignant hurdle”, he takes the Agni concept of hurdle burner. The devas are merely concepts of God, but they have an important place in worship. the poet confidently establishes that the president of all in the highest realm surely knows.

Because there is a total of 27 nakshatr(am) (stars), each divided by 4 paadam (sectors of a day) hence, the chanting of 108 titles is a way for us to convey our gratitude and anugraham (grace) towards the well being of all species born on earth and not just for one’s self-well-being. (RV : 3.54) Thus, Rigvedic Indra is considered to be an equivalent of all-powerful God, in whom different concepts of God unite. It is part of the tradition of preserving ancient texts for a few reasons. Brahma:preeti: Brahma meaning creation and nature, or the creator Who represents all of creation and ‘preeti’ meaning sanctity or affection. The question puns should be realized as such so that they can explain parallel meanings simultaneously. The knowledge of most people is conditioned by their own subjective and objective experiences. Nasadiya is a profound work that describes both simultaneously. (Rig Veda I.48) Fire. Returning to Nasadiya hymn, it talks about the “ekam”, the One that manifests from a state of timelessness (where there is no meaning for existence; though it is not non-existence), comes out as existence by desire (kAma, note that also in Rigveda 8th Mandala Kama or the spontaneous desire is the cause of manifestation of universe and creation) and self impulse (svadhA, also compare with the lines “they by svadha, agitated through regeneration and assumed sacrificial names”, RV 1.6). Usually, in Sanskrit, there is a clause “If/whether (condition) then else/or maybe (statement)” which is shown by “yad vA…. The Agni as the result of kindling by a strong passion, becomes the Agni who “overcomes the hurdles and contests” (sahasva pRtanA is a very common expression; for example consider agne sahasva pRtanA abhimAtIr apAsya…); this echoes in the later Taittiriya Aranyaka speaking about Agni as Durgahan, whose lustre (like Surya – sUryA) is the durgA – that which cannot be penetrated (by others). The Tamil accent for “n” would be harder, “r” would be harder too. Guna:  meaning default human nature and habits (vasana) based on the level of conscience. An action performed against the karma defined to a person’s respective ashram(am) is called a:karma or dush:karma. (It is interesting that this feat is also made to reside in Indra, as purandara) Agni also places the virtuous lustre unto the worshiper. The whole of Vedas reflect this kind of philosophy.

The Rig Veda/Mandala 6/Hymn 1; The Rig Veda/Mandala 6/Hymn 2; The Rig Veda/Mandala 6/Hymn 3; The Rig Veda/Mandala 6/Hymn 4; The Rig Veda/Mandala 6/Hymn 5 It is simply like telling “or else ….” without telling the main clause before. One purpose for doing so, is in order to connect people with the origins of knowledge, religion and culture. In Rigveda, you need to pronounce the retroflex “L”. Because the कोऽयमात्मेति वयमुपास्महे is followed by कतरः स अात्मा येन वा पश्यति येन वा शृणोति etc. Each life presents a being with an option to either shed that vasana through realization and upasana (practice) or ingrain new vasana, but its through this constant effort to shed and foster uttama desire that causes a being to evolve in conscience. yadi vA….”.

Dirghatamas Aucathya puts it very clearly in RV 1.164, the same also features in RV 10.113. (That is why some Indologists who were obsessed with the Biblical concept of God saw Varuna as the supreme; those who were obsessed with the Agni principles and concepts saw Agni as supreme; those who were obsessed with Puranas even scraped out sukta portions from Rigveda to defend Vaishnavism and Shaivism….). And in the end, too, the Nasadiya sukta confidently asserts that there is a president in the highest realms (The creator). Sahastra, though widely interpreted as 1008 actually means infinite and since it’s not possible to list all titles of Ishwara the list stops at 1008 expressing our limitation, unable to go further. Rigveda is very profound and important according to the subject of it. (RV : 10.90) or “ekam sat” (“One Existence”; RV 1.164) or “tad ekam” (“That One” , RV 10.129) Thus, there are two parts of God – the Creator that is beyond our concepts, but still is the one whom we seek for and worship; the Creator’s energy that is spread throughout this universe manifested and non-manifested, which is noticeable as the splendor of God. And the Creator is Everything and beyond everything. If we don’t assert it, then it doesn’t exists. The whole of Vedas reflect this kind of philosophy. Agni has even more depth in concepts – Agni is the giver of treasures by purifying metals; he purifies the raw thoughts from which treasures emerge. Hence, moving forward rather than addressing Ishwara as an object or a thing, we shall refer to Ishwara as ‘Him’.
