divya śvan दिव्य श्वन्

Definition: The ‘ divine dog,’ in one passage of the Athar­vaveda appears to denote Canis major or Sirius. But Bloom­field thinks that the two divine dogs referred to in the Maitrāyanī Samhitā and the Taittirīya Brāhmana are the sun and moon, and that the sun is meant in the Atharvaveda.
