General definition (in Hinduism)

Devasya is the genitive case form of the word deva which is derived from div = luminous/ radiant but connotatively means the divine. This genitive case is taken to be in agreement with the genitive case of the compound tatsavituḥ and individually with the genitive case of the word savituḥ. Tatsavitur devasya is taken as a single phrase meaning "of that divine entity called Savitṛ".
