ANGIRAS

Hindu Wisdom God

Also known as Angirasa

Highly Intellectual Sage and Profound Meditator

One of the Prajâpatis, he is a Vedic seer who was created by Brahma out of his own thoughts. Consequently Angiras is phenomenally intelligent and receptive to all manner of spiritual broadcasts.

He picked up most of the sacred fourth Veda just by concentrating and was kind enough to transmit it to humanity.

Apart from a break to get married and father a new generation of holy sages, he has spent most of his existence in a meditation so profound that he is now at one with practically everything. Your chances of attracting his attention for earthly concerns appear to be slim.
