Indra



Click on image to buy from Amazon
  • In Hinduism, Indra, also known as Śakra in the Vedas, is the leader of the Gods.

  • Indra is also the Lord of Heaven (Svarga, also known as Svarga Loka).

  • Indra is also said to be the God of Rain and Thunderstorms.

  • As well as being recognized by Hindus, Indra is also recognized by other religions:

    • In Jainism, Indra is known as Śakra, Sakka, or Saudharmendra.

    • In Buddhism, Indra is usually known as Śakra or Sakka. In China, Korea, and Japan, Indra always appears opposite Brahma, and the two are revered as protectors of the historical Buddha. Additionally, some Buddhists regard the Taoist Jade Emperor (the ruler of heaven) as an interpretation of Indra.

    • in the Zoroastrian religion, Indra is the name of a Daeva (a being of shining light) (although Daevas are considered supernatural beings with negative characteristics).

  • Indra is sometimes described as golden-bodied.

  • Indra wields a lightning bolt (vajra) and rides a four-tusked white elephant (Airavata).

  • Indra can be depicted with four arms or with two. When depicted with two, he holds the vajra and a bow. When depicted with four, he also bears two lances.

  • Indra is said to live in Svarga (heaven) in the vicinity of a sacred mountain (Mount Meru). His court is said to be inhabited by deceased warriors who live without sadness, pain, or fear.

Here are some statues of Lord Indra:

Indra is one of the most powerful of all gods in the Vedic Pantheon. In Nepal, a huge festival is still celebrated in his adoration, known as Indra jatra, during the celebrations of which numerous icons of the deity are carried out in processions. This sculpture depicts the god in a manner that is typically Nepalese.The youthful Indra, resplendent in his decorated crown and ornaments, sits relaxed in the posture known as maharajalila asana, a comfortable way of sitting by Indian princes on their thrones. His right hand rests languidly on the corresponding knee, while the left, placed on the ground, helps him support his posture. While all other gods in the Hindu Pantheon invariably have their third eye placed vertically between the eyebrows, Indras is marked horizontally. This is a distinguishing attribute of Indra from other deities. More importantly, this third eye symbolizes the thousand eyes of Indra, mentioned in the Vedas, where he is often called as Sahasraksha, or the thousand-eyed.

Product Description:
Krishna is a deity worshiped across many traditions in Hinduism in a variety of perspectives. While many Vaishnava groups recognize him as an avatar of Vishnu, other traditions within Krishnaism consider Krishna to be svayam bhagavan, or the supreme being. Krishna is often depicted as an infant, as a young boy playing a flute as in the Bhagavata Purana or as a youthful prince giving direction and guidance as in the Bhagavad Gita. The stories of Krishna appear across a broad spectrum of Hindu philosophical and theological traditions. They portray him in various roles: a god-child, a prankster, a model lover, a divine hero and the Supreme Being. The principal scriptures discussing Krishna's legends are the Mahabharata, the Harivamsa, the Bhagavata Purana and the Vishnu Purana.
