What is the Net of Indra?
Indra was one of the original Vedic gods, a heroic fire-god later to be
supplanted in importance by Shiva, Ram, etc.
I'm not sure where the Net
of Indra first appeared on the scene, but according the Chinese Buddhists
of the Hua-Yen school, the Net is in Indra's palace, and it extends in
At each "node" or eye of the net there is a
perfectly clear jewel, which reflects the totality of all the other
jewels in the Net.
