Typically, when we think of Rishi Jamadagni, we get reminded of his immense anger- because of which, he had killed his wife and sons. Check out that story here…
But he is to be thanked for some basic items like sandals and umbrella, which allow us to bear the weather elements.
This scared and terrified the Sun god and he appeared before the sage asking for blessings and forgiveness. Rishi Jamadagni indicated his reason for anger to Surya dev and in response- the Sun god offered two items which would help mankind to deal with his immense heat.
One of the items was sandals or footwear and the other was an umbrella. As we know, both of these items help us to protect ourselves from the harshness of the weather and the extreme heat of the sun.
They mull over the many aspects of day to day human life that are challenging to common folks and what can be done that will in turn help and benefit mankind.
