SÂVITRÎ

Hindu Sun God

God of the Moving Sun

He’s a fired-up God with a golden chariot drawn by white horses whose manes stream with fire, as does his own hair as he zooms hither and thither.

He is the God of Movement and keeps the Earth turning around the Sun day and night, also sorting out the seasonal sequences. May be related to Sarasvati.
