Chandra – चंद्र
Sanskrit चन्द्र lit. “shining”

He is described as young, beautiful, fair; two-armed and having in his hands a club and a lotus.
He rides his chariot across the sky every night, pulled by ten white horses or an antelope.
Although the Chandra is the animal most commonly depicted with Him in iconography, the rabbit is also particularly sacred to him and all rabbits are under his protection.
He is connected with dew and as such, is one of the gods of fertility.

Main Associations that could be manipulated into video / photographs to represent Chandra:

 

  • Plants
  • Water
  • Intense Light
  • ‘The Bright Drop’
  • Fragile Leaves
