Ashvins or Ashwini Kumaras are divine twin horsemen in the Rigveda, sons of Saranya, a goddess of the clouds
and wife of either Surya in his form as Vivasvat. They are Vedic gods symbolising the shining of sunrise and
sunset, appearing in the sky before the dawn in a golden chariot, bringing treasures to men and averting misfortune
They are the doctors of gods and are the devas of Ayurvedic medicine.
They are called Nasatya (dual nasatyau "kind,
helpful" in the Rigveda; later, Nasatya is the name of one twin, while the other is called Dasra ("enlightened
giving"). By popular etymology, the name nasatya was analysed as na+asatya "not untrue"="true".
In the epic Mahabharata, King Pandu's wife Madri is granted a son by each Ashvin God and bears the twins Nakula
and Sahadeva who, along with the sons of Kunti, are known as the Pandavas.
To each one of them is assigned the number 7 and to the pair the number 14.
Ashvini is the name of an asterism in Indian astronomy, later identified with the mother of the Ashvins. This
asterism forms the first of the 27 asterisms that form the zodiac in Indian astronomy. This star is identified
as Hamal, the brightest star in the constellation of Aries (Alpha Arietis).
The Ashvins are mentioned 376 times in the Rigveda, with 57 hymns specifically dedicated to them.
