Pushan is a Vedic god. Pushan is the god who helps in conducting marriages, providing safe journeys and will dwell in the hearts of those people who feed food to the animals. He gives the results according to our Karma. He guides the souls to travel to the other world.

He mainly relieves the people from all sorts of natural calamities which occur due to cyclone, floods, heavy rain and tsunami. He does all the goodness to us, in order to live a peaceful life. He always takes care of the devotees who worship god in any form, and other religious people also, but only thing he expects from the people is true bhakti on god.
If we have pure devotion on god, he will do good things in our life, on the basis of our past karmic deeds. He is also having the power to reduce our bad karmic deeds to some extent and to give good results in our life. But he cannot change the entire fate of a person.
