Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: Cologne Digital Sanskrit Dictionaries: The Purana Index
Lokādhāna (लोकाधान).—Soma takes away the water drunk by the sun through nāḍis and thus sets in motion the Jyotiṣa cakram. The clouds drink from Soma and pour in as rain for six months by the heaviness of the wind; thus the waters are not wasted; once taken they are returned; from the sun comes heat, and from the moon śītala.*
- * Vāyu-purāṇa 51. 14-16.
