Just need an answer about the two gods Mithra and Varuna, their situation actually.
I know that Mithra isn't worshiped at all, but I read and suspect personally that his name still remains in the "Indian subconscious", where it seems that he became a simple word related to friendship or something else like that (Mithram or Mithran?). So a confirmation of this survivalism is hoped.
For Varuna, I just want to learn more about him, if he was related to Justice, I remember that his worship is limited today, and that he is primarily associated with Water, Rivers, Sea... But I want also to know if he was associated with the Night, maybe he was the dichotomy of Mithra, that I associate with the Sun and the Light.
I'm focused particularly to these two gods, because I've read that a French anthropologist considered them as a "couple", Mithra associated with the notion of "Agreement" (Contrat in French) and Varuna with the "Oath" (Serment in French). This idea sounds a bit true for me, because with the little knowledge that I have in this subject, Mithra appeared to me as a god "Friend of the Human kind". Varuna, like I knew about him (a kind of poem/song which stant like a praise or more a complain about his cruelty, notably for the floods), appears as a terrifiant god.
All these questions for a student of secondary for his homework of Philosophy about Justice.
Sorry for my bad English (made with the help of Google Translate) and please only answers which are academically correct.
Thanks for your help :)
