According to ancient Vedic discipline, Lord Indra holds the esteemed title of King of the Gods and Ruler of the Heavens. One of the primary gods of Hindu mythology, Indra is celebrated as one of the main deities of the Rigveda and is often depicted as wielding a thunderbolt, known as Bhaudhara, as well as a Vajra, a powerful magical weapon that is also found in Buddhist belief. A popular sloka dedicated to the Lord describes him as so:
“Vajrasya Bhartā Bhuvanasya Goptā Vṛtrasya Hantā Namucernihantā
Kṛṣṇe Vasāno Vasane Mahātmā Satyānṛte Yo Vivinakti Loke”
This, when translated, reads:
“Oh, wielder of the Vajra, protector of the universe, the slayer of Vṛtra and Namuci;
Oh, illustrious one, who wears the black cloth, and makes light of the truth and untruth of the universe.”

An imposing figure, Indra is considered a generally benevolent force, believed to grant peace and prosperity upon those who worship him and bringing divine rain down upon drought-ridden areas. A force to be reckoned with, his power is also called upon in times of war or strife, to invoke his divine support and immeasurable power to the benefit of his devotees.
The King of the Gods, Indra’s form has often been likened to his Indo-European counterparts of the German Wotan, Norse Odin, Greek Zeus, and Roman Jupiter.
