Ahalya, in Hindft mythology, was the daughter of Brama of wonderful beauty. The god of the sun, Indra, fell in love with her, and won her favor when her husband Gautama, a priest, was absent.. The angry husband cursed the god, and in consequence thereof a singular punishment was inflicted upon the latter. On his body a thousand Phalli grew. His begging and pleading caused the priest to change the punishment. The Phalli fell off, and in place of them Indra received one thousand eyes, whence his surname Sahasraksha.
