varun (Dave)

varun hindu dharm ke ek pramukh devata hain. praacheen vaidik dharm mein unka sthaan bahut hi mahattvapoorn tha par vedon mein usaka roop itna amoort hain ki usaka praakrutik chitran mushkil hai. maana jaata hai ki varun ki sthiti anya vaidik devataaon ki apeksha praacheen hai, iseeliye vaidik yug mein varun kisi praakrutik upaadaan ka vaachak naheen hai. agni va Indra ki apeksha varun ko sambodhit sookton ki maatra bahut kam hai fir bhi usaka mahatva kam naheen hai. Indra ko mahaan yoddha ke roop mein jaana jaata hai to varun ko naitik shakti ka mahaan poshak maana gaya hai, vah rit (satya) ka poshak hai. adhiktar sookton mein vasrn ke prati udaatt bhakti ki bhaavana dikhaai deti hai. rigved ke adhiktar sookton mein varun se kiye gaye paapon ke liye kshama praarthana ki gayi hain. varun ko anya devataaon jaise Indra aadi ke saath bhi varnit kiya gaya hai. varun se sambandhit praarthanaaon mein bhakti bhaavana ki paraakaashtha dikhaai deti hai. udaaharan ke liye rigved ke saatavein mandal mein vasrn ke liye sundar praarthana geet milte hain. unako "asur" ki upaadhi di gayi thi, matlab ki vo "Dave" devataaon ke samooh se alag the. unke paas jaadui shakti maani jaati thi, jiska naam tha maaya. unako itihaasakaar maanate hain ki asur varun hi paarasi dharm mein "ahura majda" kahalaae. baad ki pauraanik kathaaon mein varun ko maamooli jal-Dave bana diya gaya.
