What can you tell me about Dyaus Pita? I've been researching him for an hour, ofc I've been aware of him for the past few months.

In this verse from Mandala 4 of Rik, there is a mention of Dyaus Pita but there is nothing about a heaven or sky or sunlight in verse translation, am I missing something obvious?

Mandala IV - I Hymn - X Verse

I've also heard that Bhisma from Mahabharata is a rebirth of this "Dyaus Pita" is that true?

Apparently i've also heard Dyaus

  • Rapes his daughter Ushas
  • Is seperated from Mother Earth by Indra to create the world

What are the hymns which say so if they do exist that is.
