Danu, a Hindu primordial goddess, is mentioned in Vedic texts. The word Danu described the primeval waters which this deity perhaps embodied. She is called the mother of Vrtra, a demonic personality, who does combat and is defeated by Indra. In later Hinduism, she becomes the daughter of Daksa and the consort of Kasyapa. A.G.H.
