  Dyaus Pita - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In vedic religion, Dyaus Pita is the Sky Father, husband of Prithvi and father of Agni and Indra (RV 4.17.4).
Sharing a fate similar to nordic Tyr's, already in the Rig Veda, Dyaus Pita is all but featureless, appearing in hymns 1.89, 1.90, 1.164, 1.191 and 4.1 in simple invocations.
Thomas Oberlies tentatively identifies Asura and Dyaus in pre-vedic religion (both appear as Indra's father, but Asura is never associated with Prithvi, so there is a possibility of two conflicting myths).

In Müller's view 'gods' began as words constructed in order to express abstract ideas, but were transformed into imagined personalities.
Thus the Indo-European father-god appears under various names: Zeus, Jupiter, Dyaus Pita.

Yet of the Indo-European-speaking society we can reconstruct with certainty the word for 'god,' *deiw-os, and the two word name of the chief deity of the pantheon *dyeu-pater- (Latin Jupiter, Greek Zeus Pater, Sanskrit Dyaus pita and Luvian Tatis Tiwaz).
The forms *dyeu- and *deiw-os are both derivatives of a root *deiw- meaning 'to shine' and appearing in the word for 'day' in numerous languages (Latin dies; but English DAY is not related).
