Indra's twin. He is the God of fire and the acceptor of sacrifices. He is the supreme director of religious ceremonies. He is also a messenger between the mortals and the gods. Fire (अग्नि, agni) is one of the five primary elements (pañcabhūta) forming the basic components of the world. He is also a messenger between the mortals and the gods.
Agni is represented as a man with three bearded heads who appears in three different forms: in the sky as the sun, in the air as lightning and on the earth as fire. Hence the numeric value of fire is three. The word Agni is derived from the three verbs - from 'going', from 'shining or burning' and from 'leading'. The fire-god is called Agni because he is Agrani; the forward leader who is ever awake as disseminator of knowledge and the first principle of thought which manifests as speech.
Agni thus represents great learning and enlightening wisdom which ought to be sought, located and humbly approached. Agni-rahasya (the secret of fire) is the key to all the knowledge because Agni is the power of inner as well as outer illumination. Medha (intelligence) is Agni's sister. Agni excites Buddhi (reason and intellect) and makes one understand and comprehend the truth by illuminating one's mind (Rig Veda). In Rig Veda, Agni is addressed as Rudra, the one who makes the evil persons weep.

Fire is supposed to represent Pran Shakti, the LIfe Force. During all pranpratishtha, a process is followed which is called Agnyutaran (अग्न्युत्तारण). Sometimes, Pran is referred as made of Agni Tatwa or The Pran itself represents the Fire Element, one of the five elements our body is made of.
Savitra and Saavitra are responsible for transfering this Pran Sahkti or Atma into the embroy and instate it.
We, in Vastu, are more concerned with Gārhapatyāgni (गार्हपत्याग्नि, “The householder’s fire”) and Yagyagni (यज्ञाग्नि) - गार्हपत्याग्नि, is one of the five forms of Agni’s ritual fire. This form of fire is brought into the house after the Grih Pravesh ceremony and is the centre of family rituals.
Features of the yajna or sacrifice into यज्ञाग्नि is a daily ritual. Offering of a portion of cooked food (ग्रास) is the simplest form of Yajna. This is the opportunity for all those who have not done even a single Yagnyam so far in their lives. By performing this we will be doing the Prāyahchitham of not doing the Yagnyam so far in our lives. This Agnyādānam offered to Gruha Agni brings prosperity to the family and protects from all calamities.
