Rishis, in Hindu mythology, are ten sons of Brahma, who are infinitely wise and pious, and thus resemble the gods, with whom they share the power to create men and gods. All things owe their existence immediately to these Rishis in common with the gods, and they are accordingly termed the ten ancestors, or lords, of all created beings. Their names are Daksha, Pulastya, Agni, Wasishta, Atri, Maritshi, Brigu, Narada, Pulagen, and Kratu. The seven Menus — Suagarabhara, Svaroshisha, Anttami, Tamasa, Raivatta, Chakshusha, and Vaivasvata — are sometimes classed with the Rishis.
