The Aryans believed in many gods. They worshipped Indra, the god of war; Agni, the god of fire; and Usha, the goddess of the morning, as well as many other minor gods and goddesses. They believed that these deities had great power over their lives. The priests performed elaborate ceremonies in an effort to both please them as well as gain their favor.
