To the best of my knowledge Adityas means "boundless ones" but has also been interpreted "gods of yore." I've seen several counts for how many Adityas there actually were. The most consistant counts seems to be 7. But I've scanned through the Rig Veda database and I can only find 4 gods that are either said to be a son of Aditi or Adityas in the Family Books 2-7 here: We will invoke strong , early - conquering Bhaga , the Son of Aditi , the great supporter : - RV 7.41.2 Let Aditi rejoice and the Adityas , Varuna , Mitra , Aryaman , most righteous . – RV 7.51.2 I've read that Daksa, Amsa, and Indra are also Adityas but I can find solid evidence for this. Can anyone else?
