Indra, in the Hindu religion, is the king of the gods. He is one of the chief gods of Rigveda.
In early spiritual books, Indra performs a diversity of characters. As king, he commences cattle raids against the dasas, or dasyus, local residents of the lands over which his people reach. He produces rain as the god of the thunderbolt, and he is the famous fighter who wins the anti-gods (asuras). He also destroys numberless human and superhuman opponents, most famously the monster Vritra, chief of the dasas and a demon of dryness.
Vritra is arrested as a dragon of keeping the waters and the rains, as a dasa of keeping cows, and as an anti-god of covering the Sun. Indra is established for those efforts by drinks of the potion of redemption, the soma, which priests appear to him in the reduction. Among his associates are the Rudras (or Maruts), who drive the clouds and direct winds. Indra is sometimes related to as “the thousand-eyed.”
In art and figure, Indra is usually described driving his white elephant, Airavata. Indra also performs a part in the Jain and Buddhist mythology of India. When Mahavira, the Jain guardian, and reformer, cuts off his hair to signify his sacrifice of the world, Indra, as king of the gods, receives the hair into his hands. Buddhist mythology sometimes challenges Indra and sometimes describes him as a mere figurehead.
Though a very early god, Indra’s exact roots are not clear. Interestingly, he has often been compared with Thor of Nordic and Germanic beliefs. Both carry weaponry and have control over lightning and thunder; both their weapons return to their respective owners after their use; both are connected with bulls at an earlier time in their lives, and both are heroes and defenders of mankind.
Indra fathers the famous warrior Arjuna and works in vain to check the god of fire, Agni, from burning a great forest. In the Puranas, old collections of Hindu myths and legends, Krishna, an avatar of Vishnu, persuades the cowherds of Gokula (or Vraja, modern Gokul) to stop their worship of Indra. Enraged, Indra grants down downpours of rain, but Krishna lifts Mount Govardhana on his fingertip and gives the people covered under it for seven days until Indra relents and pays him homage.
