Rishis

Rishis are Hindu holy men. The wisdom and knowledge of the first seven Rishis was so phenominal that they were put into the sky when they died and formed the constellation Ursa Major. They were said to be even wiser than the gods themselves about some things. The god Indra's thunderbolts are said to be made out of the ground up bones of the Rishis.
