Lord Budha is regarded as the god of merchandize and the defender of merchants. He is represented as mild and eloquent who possess a green coloured body. According to legends Budha is married to Ila, the daughter of Manu and had a son named Pururava.
In the Ramghur temple he is shown as holding a scimitar, a club and a shield and riding a winged lion. In other portraits he is shown holding a scepter and a lotus while riding a carpet, an eagle or a chariot drawn by lions. Lord Budha on his devotees confers knowledge and wealth.
Budha is considered a beneficiary until he is joined with another malevolent planet according to Vedic astrology. Budha as a planet is friendly with the Sun and Venus; however he is hostile to the Moon and impartial towards the other planets. He represents intellect, communication, analysis, science, mathematics, business and research. He is revered as the lord of three lunar mansions. He is associated with north direction.
