General definition (in Hinduism)

[Ares in Hinduism glossaries]

The origin of the Greek name “Ares” was debated by philologists, and reasons against a common root with the identical “Mars” were admitted. It seems to me that just as “Mars” is derived from “Marut”, “the terrible ones” of the Vedas, so “Ares” was formed from the “terrible one” of the Hebrew, which, as used by Joel and Isaiah, is “ariz”.

Ares of Greek mythology:—Indra is accompanied by the Maruts, the storm winds. This is the same root as the Greek Ares, and the Latin Mars; and the Teutonic Thor Miolnir, the god of war in each mythology. These Maruts overturn trees and destroy forests; they roar like lions; they shake the mountains; they are swift as thought; they are brothers of whom no one is the elder, no one the younger: this is a perfect picture of the wind; and in this character of the Maruts we see blind strength and fury without judgment.
