Stuart's Daily Word Spot: Vac

The Creation of the Cosmic Ocean and the Eleme...Image via Wikipedia
Vac: another of the occasional gods. Vac is a Hindu goddess of the spoken word. She is also known as the ‘queen of the gods’ and is considered the personification of speech. Credited with creating the four Vedas, which are the basis of Hindu mythology, she also personifies truth, which, when you consider she is a weaver of myth, says something about the relationship between some gods and the truth, doesn’t it?
