Typically told around the warmth and light of the evening fire, story-telling has facilitated for generations the passing down of a culture’s sacred practices and vidya (wisdom), serving as a portal for transporting the listener into deeper realms of understanding and insight. Ancient Traditions, Legends and Mythology of the Vedic Lords and Goddesses is an exploration into divinity as represented by the traditions, legends and mythology of the Vedic Lords and Goddesses. In this workshop, the following topics will be discussed: -The RgVedic Lord Agni (God of Fire) and his iconography; RgVedic hymns to Agni; his legends and metamorphosis during the Puranic period and the story of the birth of Kartikeya, Agni’s son. -Lord Indra and the slaying of the serpent-demon Vritra. The relevance and significant of serpents in India’s mythological past. -The sampradaya of Ayurveda and the role of the Aswhini Kumars (Celestial Physicians). Legends of the other celestial healers such as Rudra and the Maruts, Varuna, Surya (the Sun) and Apah (the Waters), will be recounted.
