(RigVeda 1.35.2) "Throughout the dusky firmament advancing, laying to rest the immortal and the mortal, Borne in his golden chariot he cometh, Savitar, God who looks on every creature." In Hinduism, Surya is one of the chief solar deities, one of the Adityas, son of Kashyapa and one of his wives Aditi, of Indra, or of Dyaus Pitar. He has hair and arms of gold. Surya drives through the heaven in his triumphal chariot harnessed by seven horses or one horse with seven heads, representing the seven chakras. He presides over "Ravi-war" or Sunday. Surya is associated mainly to colour red, mainly, and with the red variety of the flower hibiscus/china rose ("javaa"). In the Rigveda, the god of the sun was one of the three chief deities: the others were Indra and Agni. The most distinct of several Hindu sun gods, Surya, is described as short, with a burnished copper body, riding through the sky in a chariot drawn by seven ruddy horses and driven by Aruna, dawn, his wife or mother. Surya is credited with several parents, one of whom is Brahma, while his own progeny includes Yama, the king of the dead (or God of death), and Yamuna, the present River Yamuna. These two, brother and sister, are by some looked upon as the first human beings, just as Yama was the first man to die and journey to the other realm. When Surya's wife Sangnya, overpowered by his radiance, fled as a mare to the shade of a forest and studied meditation, the sun god came to her as a stallion. Later her father, Vishvakarma (God of engineering, architecture and aesthetics), reduced Surya's brilliant rays by cutting away one-eighth of his substance, the fiery trimmings falling to earth among other things as the chakra (disc) of Vishnu and the trishula (trident) of Shiva. Worship of Surya can be found in Bihar and Tamilnadu, where his benevolence is invoked for the healing of the sick.
