This is what Krishna says in the Bhagavad Gita:
Of the Ādityas I am Viṣṇu, of lights I am the radiant sun, of the Maruts I am Marīci, and among the stars I am the moon.
Let's focus on
of the Maruts I am Marīci part.
Kashyapa is the son of Marichi, one of the mind-born sons of Brahma
Now as per the Wikipedia, the the Marutas (Sanskrit: मरुत), also known as the Marutagana and sometimes identified with Rudras, are storm deities and sons of Rudra and Prisni.
My Question is: Why Marichi is called Marutas(sons of Rudra and Prisni) when Marichi is considered as the son of Brahma?
Is there any scripture reference which describe Marichi as Maruts (apart from Bhagavad Gita shloka which is mentioned above).
Or did I get it completely wrong and that Marīci(mentioned in Bhagavad Gita) and Sage Marichi are 2 totally different people?
