होता॑रं रत्न॒धात॑मम् ॥१॥
Om Agni meede purohitam
Rig Veda 1:1:6
The very first word in the Vedas is ‘Agni’. Our sacred fire which we burn in our Yajna!
It is the same word from which you get igneous and the ignition key in your car.
In this mantra, we acknowledge the power and greatness of Agni.
We praise He Who has been present even before this creation.
He is the Glorious Lord of this Cosmic Sacrifice, and is worthy of our worship in all seasons.
We praise He Who is the Creator and Supreme Sustainer of all the jewel-like planets and
the stars which decorate the cosmic Drama of his creation.
