SURYA

Indian Sun God

Golden-haired Sun God and Lord of the Dawn

In Vedic mode he is the sunny son of DYAUS and known as The Shiner. He seems to be a happy chappy and has a one-wheeled chariot and a horse with seven heads or it may be seven horses creating a blurring effect moving at speed.

He has however the ability to keep us all totally confused and guessing, because he does a Hindu mode where he is son of BRAHMA, if it isn’t KASYAPA and ADITI.

He also claims another persona as a daughter of SAVITRI. We think he is very fond of making up stories. There is another one where he becomes a stallion.

Still he does very sunny things despite his compulsive fibbing. So let’s just enjoy the sunshine.
