Description

Agni is one of the Solar deities in the Vedas; in fact, he is the first deity mentioned in the Rig-Veda. The Rig Veda starts with a Hymn dedicated to Agni. He is the ethereal aspect of the sun—the non-physical, divine quality of the Sun. He is the masculine principle of the soul. He was the first spark of light when our soul was created, and he is the fire and passion within it. Bahar recreates these deities with a modern-futuristic perspective; it is the simplest method for today's people to connect with, understand, and employ these energies in their daily lives. The way she sees these energies -deities- is that we all have them intrinsically within us. Which is analogous to a dormant potential ready to be activated. Modern-day people may understand, relate to, and utilize these energies in their day-to-day lives in a useful way to re-connect with their souls and produce positive, plentiful energy.
