Agni Kunda

Definition - What does Agni Kunda mean?

Having several meanings in Hinduism, agni kunda can mean a type of energy force or structure that is usually in the shape of an upside-down pyramid that represents the dynamism of fire. From Sanskrit, agni means "fire" and these definitions all center around the fire, or internal heat, within the human soul. Kunda can mean "energy shape" or "energy field," sometimes in the physical form of a pyramid or altar that can be crafted from numerous materials. Kunda can also distinguish a specific clan of Rajputs from Indian mythology.

Yogapedia explains Agni Kunda

Also sometimes called havan kunda, agni kunda helps the energy of fire spread to the cosmic currents. When crafted into physical form these symbols of agni kunda are used for meditation, prayer and connection to universal energies.

The other definition of agni kunda comes from a division of the Rajput dynasties that originated from agni kunda on Mount Abu in India. The theory is that the several clans of agni kunda (Parmaras, Chalukyas, Chauhans and Pratiharas) are created from the holy fire on the mountain and it is that connection that makes them unique. Even though this story was first discovered around 1042 C.E., most of the dates are uncertain and scholars now theorize that all of the Rajput dynasties were born from agni kunda.
