Chandra in Hindu mythology, is one of the names for the moon or the genius inhabiting it. He married twenty-seven daughters of Daksha, but loved Rohini especially, and neglected the rest, for which their father cursed him, and he consequently died; but having repented of his error, he was again awakened. His children are called Children of the Moon, and form a separate family in the mythology of India. SEE SOMA.
