    Wiki says "Ushas is mentioned in numerous hymns of the Rigveda.[12] Forty of its hymns are dedicated to her, while her name appears in other additional hymns.[13] "...do u want something like this? – YDS May 30 at 7:23

Like many epithets ( Indra, Vishnu, etc) referring to various aspects of the Almighty God, Ushas (Dawn) is an epithet used in Rig Veda to indicate emerging of REALISATION/WISDOM.

Many hymns were dedicated to Ushas in Rig Veda. Forty of its hymns are dedicated to her, while her name appears in other additional hymns.


For example:

Mandala 1:

XLVIII, XLIX

Mandala III

XLI

Mandala IV

LI, LII

Mandala V

LXXIX, LXXX

and so on.
