(Hindu Deity)ADITYAS

The Solar deities of Hindu - the sons of Aditi and Kashyapa who reside in the heavenly regions. All represent natural phenomena.

There were originally seven Adityas, then eight, then twelve. Twelve rounds things up nicely; one for each month of the year and each spoke of the cosmic wheel of time.

At the last count they had multiplied to a whopping thirty three million, and while the Puranyas elevated Aditi to 'the mother of all Gods' status i'm sure this is not to be taken literally.

Aunty Diti didn't like these goody goddy types much and was more interested in trying to elevate her own nastier Daitya's to the top of the celestial power tree. Jealousy is a terrible thing.
