Sa-Yoni, Sayoni

An ancient name for the unique concept of the 'two revolving yonis' of Ushasa-naktam, a pair of cosmic twin goddesses mentioned in the Rig Veda. Separately, these deities are known as Ushas and Nakra, yet they are regarded as so deeply entertwined that even their yoni's revolve around one another.

Christina Camphausen: Sa-Yoni

In her book Sakhiyani, author Giti Thadani gives this ancient myth a lesbian interpretation, regarding it as a symbol of erotic play between women, and as mythical evidence that such was once accepted in Indian society.
