Hinduism - Who Is Rohini(Daksha) In Hindu Mythology?

 

In Hindu mythology, a daughter of the deity Daksha who is wedded to the Moon alongside her twenty-six sisters.

Despite Daksha's pleas to give them all equal time, the Moon prefers Rohini above her sisters.

Finally, Daksha curses the Moon, causing him to lose his brilliance.

The curse is subsequently changed so that the moon would wax and wane, but its departure will never be complete.

Hinduism - Who Is Rohini In Hindu Mythology?

 

The birth mother of Balarama, the divinity Krishna's brother, according to Hindu legend.

Balarama was born in an unusual way.

The fetus is mysteriously transferred from Devaki's womb to Rohini's after he is conceived.

This is done to keep him safe, since Devaki's evil uncle Kamsa has already slain Devaki's previous seven children and would undoubtedly kill Balarama if she carries him to term.
