PARJANYA

INTRODUCTION
Parjanya is a deity of rain, thunder, lightning and he also fertilizes the earth.  He is controlled by Lord Indra, and discharges his duties along with him, since Lord Indra is also considered as the rain god. He suitably rewards the writers and poets and he is an enemy for those who eat non vegetarian food. His name is mentioned in various Hindu sacred texts, and he is considered as one among the Adityas. His parents are Aditi and Kashyapa.
We can make continuous prayers to Lord Indra, Lord Varuna, Mata Bhudevi and Parjanya in order to get sufficient rain, and to get proper cultivation of food crops in the earth.
Parjanya is also mentioned in Buddhist texts. He is the king of the minor gods and he has got a noble daughter named Kokanada, who was considered as very sacred and a chaste woman.
Let us worship Lord Parjanya and be blessed.
