It seems to me that Lord Surya’s children are always cursed some way or the other. They get separated from one parent or are deprived of love.
Yami and Yamraj, biological mother leaves for tapasya and leaves them to Chaya’s care.
Shani - Since birth has bitter terms with his father.
Bhadra, don’t know too many details but is related to Bhadra kaal and nothing auspicious should be started in this duration, it’s for all destructive works.
Karan,again his mother gave him up after he was born and was brought up by another.
Ashwini Kumars are auspicious but have known to embarrass Surya Dev.. though I doubt authenticity of the story..
Don’t have too many details about other kids.. if someone has pls share.Edited by Autumn_Rose - a month ago
Ashwini Kumars were sons of SuryaDev? I didn't know that
I felt Ashwini was their dad and so they were called Ashwini Kumar
Surya dev’s wife Sandhya/ Sangya couldn’t bear his heat.. as he was very hot.. so she made a duplicate with her shadow called Chaya and left to do penance. She left her kids Yamraj and Yami to Chaya’s care. Chaya had a son with Surya dev Shani dev.. he was dark skinned because his mother was actually Chaya.. but Surya dev didn’t notice the difference.. he kept thinking she’s sangya he gets angry and feels he’s not his son.. and doesn’t accept him.
when sangya comes back this angers her and she shoos Chaya away.. and mstreats Shani. This angers him and he kicks her womb saying she’s an insult to motherhood. She curses him that he will loose his leg and it will be infected with worms etc. Surya Dev feels that something is strange as a mother will never curse her son like that.. he corners her and she confesses. He gets angry and sends her away.
Ashwin actually means horse, she takes form of a mare and does penance. Surya Dev starts missing her and goes to get her back in the form of horse.. so they have twins called Ashwin Kumars.
They rule the constellation (nakshtra) of Ashwini, and are celestial healers to the Devtas. They rule medical sciences in the human realm. That’s why nakul and sahdev had the power of healing and could communicate with animals. In Vedic astrology, you will see a lot of doctors born in this nakshtra.
Also interesting to note is that the twins also have a common wife.Edited by Autumn_Rose - 1 months ago
