SOMANATH

Daksha was God Brahma's son. He had many sons and daughters. He gave twenty -seven daughters to the Moon-God in marriage. These - girls were named after the twenty-seven nakshatras. You know these nakshatras, of course, don't you?

Now the Moon-God did not love all his wives equally. One of the wives wasRohini. Her the Moon-God loved more than the others. The other wives did not relish this. They complained to their father, Daksha.

Daksha sent for the Moon-God and rebuked him. "Dear son in-law, your wives are my daughters-all of them. I don't want you to love any one more than the others. It is not a good thing to make any woman sad."

The Moon-God promised that he would try to love all equally. However, he continued to love Rohini more than the others.
