The path he treads is black and white and red..

reads the Hymn (number 20) to Agni from the Aryan holy book Rig-Veda.

Agni is the holy Aryan god of Fire. His sign is the most sacred in all Aryan-Hindu lore, the Swastika. Like the English Inga (Agni backwards) he represents the creation of fire (the swastika is the fire whisk). Agni's name originates in the Proto-European root Ign, which gives us the word Ignite.
