BRIGHUS

Hindu Lightning God

Also known as Bhargavas, Bhrighus

Lords of the Lightning Communication System

Storm deities known as the ‘Shining Ones’. They use lightning to send messages. When it comes to zapping lightning bolts, they are fast, accurate, and straight to the point. What have we mortals got to match this?

They seem to be named after Bhrigu, who may have invented them or just taken the credit, but it is much more probable they were created by Agni God of Fire.
