ATRI

One of the Seven Seers

As a member of the PRAJAPATIS Universal Order Society founded by BRAHMA, it is his job to give everything a good seeing-to, and to make sure it stays in place. Especially the sun. We can't have that falling into the Underworld.

He had to do this by total concentration, willpower and watchfulness. This does at times lead to his eyes watering, and it is said that his tears are distilled from the purest SOMA.

So who knows — if you are standing in the right place at the right time and allowing for evaporation, the eeniest weeniest droplet of Soma might just miss you by a millimeter. Whatever you do, don't let the ASURAS know about this.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Atri graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Atri movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Atri statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Atri. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
