Agni: Lord of Fire, the Primordial Fire of Creation

Agni is the Lord of Fire, the primordial fire of creation. Agni evolves from the relationship between Infinite Silence and Infinite Dynamism. These two values collapse on to each other at infinite speed, thus creating a friction we understand to be Agni.

In Rig Veda, Agni is the first word of the first mandala that begins, “Agnimile purohitam …...”

Ayurveda says that Agni resides in the body in the form of the seven fires of digestion—five forms in the liver and two in the stomach.
