"USHAS" IS THE HINDU GODDESS OF THE DAWN; SHE IS THE DAUGHTER OF DYAUS, THE SKY, AND THE SISTER OF AGNI AND INDRA. SHE WEARS A GOLD VEIL AND RED ROBES AS SHE RIDES A CHARIOT ACROSS THE SKY EACH MORNING...BRINGING LIGHT INTO THE WORLD.BUT, SHE IS NOT THE SUN; IN FACT, USHAS RISES IN THE DARK WHEN HER MOTHER BEGINS THE PROCESS OF ADORNING HER. HER SISTER, THE NIGHT, LENDS THE MAGIC WHICH ALLOWS USHAS TO LOOK AT EVERYONE AT THE SAME TIME. USHAS IS FRIENDLY AND A GIVER OF WEALTH TO ALL PEOPLE, AND SINCE SHE ALWAYS PRECEDES THE LIGHT, SHE IS ALSO CALLED A MOTHER GODDESS.

THE SUN CATCHES SIGHT OF THE LOVELY YOUNG MAIDEN AS SHE PASSES BY AND FALLS MADLY IN LOVE; HE BEGINS TO CHASE HER. SHE SMILES, PLEASED WITH HIS AFFECTIONS AND BEGINS TO SPREAD HER LOVE AND LIGHT ACROSS THE SKY...BRINGING A NEW DAY FOR MANKIND...AND AS HER CHARIOT PASSES OVERHEAD, THE BIRDS BEGIN THEIR MORNING SONGS. THIS MORNING I WAS AWAKEN AT 5:15 AM TO THE SOUNDS OF THE JOYOUS SONGS OF THE BIRDS AS THEY GREETED THE NEW DAY. I SMILED, REMINDED THAT USHAS HAD JUST PASSED, AND WENT BACK TO SLEEP.

THE MYTHS PORTRAY USHAS AS A SHY MAIDEN, VERY CONSCIOUS OF HER BEAUTY BUT A MODEST YOUNG WOMAN WHO IS ENTERING SOCIETY UNDER THE PROTECTION OF HER MOTHER. AND IT JUST GOES TO SHOW THAT, EVEN MYTHOLOGY, IS FASCINATED WITH THE CHAUVINIST MODEL FOR OVER THOUSANDS OF YEARS THE READERS OF THE VEDAS HAVE DRAWN GREAT PLEASURE FROM THIS TALE OF THE SHY MAIDEN FOLLOWED BY THE MACHO SUN...AND FINALLY HER SURRENDER.

"IF YOU HAPPEN TO AWAKEN AND CATCH THE LIFE JUST BEFORE THE SUN APPEARS, BE SURE TO GREET HER. HER NAME IS USHAS, AND SHE IS THE GODDESS OF THE DAWN."
