Agni Astra
(also known as Agneya Astra, Agneyastra, Agniyastra)

Agneyastra is a celestial weapon in Hindu mythology which refers to Agni the god of fire and accepter of sacrifices. Agni means "fire", and Agneya means "made of fire". Agni Astra therefore translates roughly into "fire weapon", although in Sanskrit it is grammatically more correct to say Agneyastra or Agneya Astra.

Knowledge of the Agneyastra may trace all the way back to Agastya, who in some sources was the teacher of Agnivesa. Agnivesa taught the astra to Drona, who in turn taught it to Arjuna. In the Mahabharata, Arjuna also taught the Agneyastra to the Gandharva Angaraparna in exchange for 100 Gandharva horses. Bharata also know the Agneyastra in the Ramayana.

In a less mythological context, Agneyastra could refer to the use of gunpowder based firearms in which Agnivesa was an authority. The Devas were also known to possess such weapons.

Thanks to Jijith Nadumuri Ravi from Ancient Voice.

Absolutely Jenny you also bring up a good point. It's very easy to let process even a rlleay good process get in the way of doing the real work of your organization. Steve Jobs and now Seth Godin, say the same thing another way: Real artists ship. No matter how fabulous your ideas, they are worth nothing until you release them to the wild.
