Vedic Gods and Goddesses
Surya Deva was born to Devi Aditi and Sage Kashyapa. Sangya and Chhaya were his wives. Their stories are very interesting! He had 2 daughters Yamuna and Tapti.
Lord Ganesh represents a very brilliant aspect of material and spiritual life. He represents the Shiv-Parivar and hence he also represents the inner agencies of the energy body. In Tantra, Lord Ganesh holds a very important place. A repetition of his names and energies will ensure that one is protected from impediments and evils.
We often misrepresent the concept of Gods and Goddesses. Fundamentally we are usually misinformed about them by the media, by what people of little knowledge as well as our inept sorroundings. It is important that we understand the deep philosophy of the Veda, in order to explore into the concept of a personified God. The more we are able to garner about the concept of God, the more we shall be able to connect to their superior energies.
