Indra

  • 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:

Product Description:
Indra (/ˈɪndrə/, Sanskrit: इन्द्र) is a Vedic deity in Hinduism,a guardian deity in Buddhism,and the king of the highest heaven called Saudharmakalpa in Jainism.His mythologies and powers are similar, though not identical to those of the Indo-European deities such as Zeus, Jupiter, Perun, Thor, and Odin (Wotan).In the Vedas, Indra is the king of Svarga (Heaven) and the Devas. He is the god of the heavens, lightning, thunder, storms, rains and river flows.Indra is the most referred to deity in the Rigveda.He is celebrated for his powers, and the one who kills the great symbolic evil (Asura) named Vritra who obstructs human prosperity and happiness. Indra destroys Vritra and his "deceiving forces", and thereby brings rains and the sunshine as the friend of mankind.His importance diminishes in the post-Vedic Indian literature where he is depicted as a powerful hero but one who is getting in trouble with his drunken, hedonistic and adulterous ways, and the god who disturbs Hindu monks as they meditate because he fears self-realized human beings may become more powerful than him. In Buddhism, Indra has been a popular deity, referred by many names and particularly Shakra (Pali: Sakka). Indra rules over the much sought Devas realm of rebirth within the Samsara doctrine of Buddhist traditions.However, like the Hindu texts, Indra also is a subject of ridicule and reduced to a figurehead status in Buddhist texts,shown as a god that suffers rebirth and redeath.In the Jainism traditions, like Buddhism and Hinduism, Indra is the king of gods and a part of Jain rebirth cosmology.He is also the god who appears with his wife Indrani to celebrate the auspicious moments in the life of a Jain Tirthankara, an iconography that suggests the king and queen of gods reverentially marking the spiritual journey of a Jina.Collectible tibet indra dev small mini art by bharathaat for decpr and gifting purpose.
