Brahaspadi (also Brisput or Vyasa), in Hindu mythology, is the planet Jupiter, or the genius inhabiting it. He is the protecting god of knowledge, and instructs the good daemons in the sciences which the holy books contain. His wife was Tarci. She had an intimate relation with a friend of her husband, Shanderma, the genius of the moon, from which sprang Buddha, whom Brahaspadi long thought to be his own, until a divine revelation taught him otherwise.
