ADITYAS

The Sunny Sons of [ADITI], the [ADITYAS] are Solar Gods in charge of important Heavenly matters.

Their names are: VARUNA (the boss), ANSA, ARYAMAN, BHAGA, DAKSHA, MITRA and SURYA. Each Aditya takes it in turn to be in charge of the sun for one month.

Later on some smart-ass decided there should be another five — DHATOR, INDRA, MITRA, SAVITRI, and VIVASAT — to make a full calendar of months, but take no notice. We certainly shan't.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Adityas graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Adityas movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Adityas statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Adityas. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
