Ansa Hinduism

ParentsKashyap and Aditi

Ansa is a deity in Hinduism and one of the ?dityas, -a group of celestial deities that populate the sky with their parents Kashyap and Aditi. He is a solar deity.

The adityás

The oldest legends specify seven or eight of these gods, but the number was later increased to twelve. Historians have suggested that perhaps the number 12 was chosen so that each god Aditia related with a particular month, creating a link between each Aditia and the cycle of the year and the seasons.[]

In India, today, the boys get a name derived from Amsha AMSH or Ams-as-as a sign of respect for this god. Also changes very usual Aditiás other names.[]
