Named for a daughter of Prajapati and wife of the sage Kasyapa in the mythology of India. She laid only two eggs, while her sister and Kasyapa’s other wife laid a thousand. After five hundred years her sister’s eggs hatched into serpents. Jealous and impatient, she broke the shell of one of her two eggs to find Aruna {see planet  (2313)} inside with only his upper half developed. The second egg hatched into Garuda {see planet  (2307)}, who had such spiritual purity as to exceed that of all his thousand half-brothers. (M 21606) _ _.
