Ramayana, Mahabharata and many Puranas relate conflicts in which Divyastras like Brahmastra get used.

Do these weapons occur in earlier scriptures like Vedas and Brahmanas or any scriptures written after the Puranas?


1 Answer 1


Don't know about weapon like brahmastra but some other divine weapons are present in vedas.

  • Rigveda1:155:2
    1. Your Soma-drinker keeps afar your furious rush, Indra and Visnu, when ye come with all your might. That which hath been directed well at mortal man, bow-armed Krsanu's arrow, ye turn far aside.

Here, Vedas tell about Krsanu's arrow. I think that it is a name of some weapon.
