Стр. 173 - Devaki would put him to death, and who consequently had his nephews the princes regularly made away with as soon as they saw the light. In the Veda, the sun, in the form of Martanda, is the eighth son born of Aditi, and his mother casts him off, just as Devaki, who is at times represented as an incarnation of Aditi, removes Krishna.
