    Ushas (उषस्; uṣas) is a Vedic goddess of dawn in Hinduism. Some of the most beautiful hymns in the Vedas are dedicated to her. She repeatedly appears in the Rigvedic hymns where she is "consistently identified with dawn, revealing herself with the daily coming of light to the world, driving away oppressive darkness, chasing away evil demons, rousing all life, setting all things in motion, sending everyone off to do their duties".
     She is the life of all living creatures, the impeller of action and breath, the foe of chaos and confusion, the auspicious arouser of cosmic and moral order called the Ṛta in Hinduism. Her sister is Ratri, or the night.
