Agni is a god. Agni is also fire, mouth of all the gods, that the offerings we burn might reach them.
Agni, as fire, represents knowledge. Many peoples have told stories about the origin of fire; most such stories are essentially the tale of humanity acquiring power and dominion over the world around us, and the attendant devastation that our ascent has wrought.
