    As per Vedic rituals, which among the following is the divine messenger who receives the prayers and conveys them to the heavenly spheres?

    A)  Agni    

    B)         Soma

    C)  Varuna

    D)         Indra

    Correct Answer: A

    Solution :

    [a] Agni is the embodiment of the fire which consumes the offerings to the Hindu gods, so he is seen as the mediator between heaven and earth. Agni was so important to the ancient Indians that 200 hymns in the Rig Veda are addressed to him, and eight of its ten books begin with praises dedicated to Agni the Fire God. The sacrificial fire used in Hindu rituals is seen as an incarnation of Agni, so he serves as a conduit that "carries" the sacrifice of a worshiper to the gods or goddesses that are being worshiped.
