INDIAN MYTHOLOGY

The Hindu and Buddhist Gods of India...

TVASHTRI

Indian Creator God

Also known as TVASTAR, TASTAR

The Divine Handyman who built the Universe

He is a creator deity who not only built the Universe but can also tackle all those pressing heavenly jobs.

A god of all trades, his job spec includes weapons, chariots, thunderbolts — and he’ll even have a go at a palace.

TVASHTRI is fairly abstract in appearance — sometimes seen as a disembodied hand. With or without a power drill gripped in its fingers.

Best of all, he invented a bowl of everlasting booze which can never be emptied. Strangely, not much has been heard of him since.
