Thus a poet prays for the “secure and unlimited gift of aditi.”
They are called the children of Kasyapa and of aditi his wife.
aditi had eight sons; but there are only seven gods whom men call Adityas.
Entire nature is called aditi, whose children are named Adityas.
It is not to be expected that many, if any, remains of a theriomorphic character should cling to a goddess so abstract as aditi.
For obtaining sons, here aditi in days of yore had cooked that celebrated food, (presided over by the Supreme Being).
That he is explaining to aditi, in answer to her question, the duties of a faithful wife?
aditi is also known by the name of Revati; her evil spirit is called Raivata, and that terrible graha also afflicts children.
aditi, the mother of the Adityas, who is believed to be of later origin than her children, had eight sons.
Surya then said, 'O princess, O excellent damsel, these ear-rings had been given to me by aditi.
