Angirasa - Father of Brihaspati


Angirasa is one of the seven sages, the SaptaRishis. His wife is Suroopa and his sons are Uthathya, Samvarthana and Brihaspati. He is a Manasaputra (wish-born-son) of Lord Brahma.

Other accounts say that he married Suadha, the daughter of Daksha. Angirasa is said to have composed the very first verse of the Rig Veda, the hymn to Agni.
