    Legend of Birth


    Revanta is the youngest son of Surya, the Sun God and his wife, Sanjana. She was married to the Sun God but soon she decided to leave him as she couldn’t take the heat and luster emitted from him anymore. Her complexion turned dark, and she decided to leave her shadow named ChhayaChhayaChhaya

    Back home, Surya came to know about the truth as Chhaya was behaving badly with her foster son. Soon Surya went in search of his wife. When he reached the forest, he saw his wife in the form of a mare and therefore himself took the disguise of a horse. Sanjana was impressed by her husband’s dedication and let the union of two take place, from which Revanta was born.

    Symbolism


    Revanta is depicted holding a bow and an arrow and riding on the back of a horse. At times, he also holds a sword and wears armor. Unlike other Gods, he is not bare-footed. He wears boots reaching up to his calves. He is often accompanied by a dog. Revanta is also shown drinking wine, carried by his attendants.

    Attendants are always there to help him in his hunting and sporting. They carry swords and lances with them. Some also blow the conch and some beat drums for his welcome. They hold the umbrella for him, the symbol of royalty to make sure he is not affected by sun rays. There are flying attendants too holding wine and water jars.

    Revanta is also worshipped by the warriors. He protects people from the uncertainties and dangers of forests like forest fires, volcanic eruptions, robbers, animals, etc. He is a huntsmen and thus is also considered the patron God of hunting. His name is often taken with the name of his father in rituals. They both are invoked together for good health. Nakula, the youngest Pandava (the son of King Pandu) also prayed to Revanta to keep his horses away from ghosts and spirits.

    Offerings of rice balls made to Revanta free devotees from diseases and helped them gain heavenly pleasures. People wanted to obtain horses also worship him. In return, horses decorated with gold, if offered to Revanta, remove the fear of death.
