For Between the Worlds 2017, our patron was Agni. God of fire in the Vedic and Hindu traditions, Agni is fire in all its forms from the domestic hearth to the lightning in the sky, to the fire in our bellies. As the sacrificial fire, Agni bears the offerings of man to the gods, the very essence of a walker between worlds. He is the vital spark and the transformative essence that allows what we take in to become what empowers us. Agni is the messenger, the god of priests, and the priest of the gods. He shows us a path to divine connection and offers us warmth, knowledge, inspiration and transformation. He shows us what it can mean to light a fire and make an offering. In 2016 Máni showed us the light in the darkness and the will to persevere even when hatred pursues us. In 2017 we take that perseverance and through Agni seek to connect to things greater than ourselves and to find transformation and empowerment.
