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 driven by Aruṇa and a horse with seven heads. Or it may be seven horses creating a blurring effect moving at speed. It’s very hard to tell from down here.
He also claims another persona as a daughter of Sâvitrî. 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.
