RUDRAS

Hindu Gods

Poisonous little offshoots of Rudra

Watch out — bad-tempered Storm God Rudra has a gang. There are thousands of them out there causing misfortune at any opportunity. Nowadays they probably go around on Harleys and drink Jack Daniels.

The Rudras are actually aspects of Rudra himself. It seems none of the other deities wanted to play with him, so he was forced to create his own buddies.

See also the Maruts. There are also female ones called Rudranis.
