Daksa

 


Daksa, skilled and able, a Hindu sun god mentioned in¬†Vedic¬†and¬†Puranic¬†texts, who is the son of¬†Brahma¬†and¬†Aditi, and also is an¬†aditya¬†and demiurge. His consort is¬†Prasuti, and is said to have had up to sixty daughters. He appears in conflict with his son-in-law¬†Shiva¬†as the main offender Shiva’s consort¬†Sati, one of his daughters, who was so insulted by Dahsa that she committed suicide by jumping into a ritual fire. In revenge Shiva decapitated Daksa’s head, but later, after intercession from other gods, Brahma brought him back to life by giving him a head, which became his attribute, of a sacrificial goat.
