Namas was a great sage, and he was the descendant of Rishi Kashyapa. He was mentioned in the Holy Vedas, Puranas and in Ramayana and Mahabharata, and he is considered as a great Vishnu Devotee.
During the period of Ramayana, he met Lord Rama when he was living in the forest along with Lakshmana and Sita, and during the period of Mahabharata, he met Lord Krishna in Dwaraka and worshipped him.
Namas gave much respect to the devotees of Lord Vishnu like Narada, Tumburu, Dhruva and Bhakta Prahlada. Once when Lord Indra was planning to fight with Prahlada, it was Rishi Namas, who interfered between them, and made Lord Indra to stop fighting with Prahlada, by telling the good qualities of Prahlada. It is believed that after the end of Dwapara Yuga, and after his death, due to his good karmas, he went to the abode of Lord Indra, the Indra Loka.
