I have heard a lot about those rishis. I know these are categories or may be level/rank of rishis. "Rishis" are bottom level and "Saptarishi" are top level. But what made them any of these? I mean, If one has become Rishi then how he can become Maharishi or Brahma rishi or any other. And what's the difference between them? Any scriptures describes this concept?

  • Is Vishwamitra Brahma Rishi? Oct 19, 2018 at 6:42
  • @akshaykumars Yes, Brahma himself declared Vishwamitra as Brahma Rishi. But Vishwamitra requested Brahma that Rish(brhama rishi) vashishta should diclair me Brahma Rishi because he is the reason that I got inspiration to start my Journey of becoming a Brahma Rishi. Later he became one of the Saptarishi also.

    Brahm Rishi have powers equivalent to Brahma and can create a whole creation in future with power of Tapas. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trishanku Vishwamitra created whole new heaven, and hence we have 2 heavens in this creation and he was not even a Brahmin, no demi god, just a normal king Kaushik
