This word β€˜rta’ has two meanings: natural order and moral order. Varuna enforces order not only on nature, but also on human beings. He is the guardian of order and also one who practices moral principles (Ritavari). Not only Varuna, Surya also is regarded as the practitioner of morality. Concern for morality, both personal and social, is another aspect of the Vedic thought.
