Vaya, the wind, is said to have originated in Hindu (India) as the god of winds. He was worshipped from around 1700 BC to the present. Vaya is one of the most important deities in the Vedas, including the Rg Veda. In later Hinduism he evolves into a dikpala, guardian of the northwestern quarter. Also, he is depicted in some texts as a chariot driver for the god Agni. His color is dark blue and attributes are the arrow, hook, prayer wheel, staff, and water jar.

Vaya also is in the Buddhist pantheon as a dikpala, guardian of the northwestern quarter. A.G.H.
