Vahana (Vehicle) : --

Chief of the twelve solar Deities, the sons of Kashyapa and Aditi known as the Adityas.

He was a right eyefull being made of solid gold and all sparkly but you wouldn't want to look at him all the time. Saranja often got a headache from his constant radiance so she took her shadow and cloned an exact copy of herself to give her eyes a rest while Surya had his fun.

Anyway, she was there for the important bits like conceiving Yama, Yami and the Ashvins.

Surya and his chariot are pulled through heaven by a seven headed horse said to represent the seven Chakra's and rumour has it he taught the art of Ayurvedic medicine to Dhanwantari who took all the credit.

Sunday is Surya day.
