Rbhus - Divine Artisans


In the Rig Veda, the Rbhus (Rbhu, Vibhavan, and Vaja) are a trio of skilled, divine artisans. They are the sons of heaven (Dyaus) and earth. They performed many feats of skill, the greatest being the transformation of the bowl of Tvashta into four shining cups for the Gods.

Their other feats include: renewing the youth of their parents, making a cow from a hide, and shape tawny steeds for Indra. They are demi-gods, and are invoked to bring prosperity to the worshiper.
