Rajarshis in Hindu mythology are the royal saints and rishis. Rajarshis are the persons who have adopted a life of devotion.
A Rajarshi is a king who turned into a royal sage, or rishi. A rajarshi may have left the kingdom and became Rishi. Rajarshi's like Vishwamitra left his kingship and later advanced to becoming a Brahmarishi.
Rajarshi may also be a person ruling the kingdom but has reached a state of rishi and have attained self recognition.
Rajarshis belong to the Kshatriya class, and remain below most Rishis, Maharishis and Brahmarishis in their level of spiritual knowledge, but are superior to most kings. Rajarshis are believed to dwell in the heaven of Indra.
