The glory of the Sun



Hiranmayena patrena satyasyapihitam mukham

tat tvam pusan apavrnu satyadharmaya drstaye pusann

ekarse yama surya prajapatya vyuha rasmin

samuha tejah yat te rupam kalyanatamam tat te pasyami yo sav asau purusas soham asmi

The face of the Truth is covered by a golden vessel - lid. Open it, O Nourisher! Remove it - lift it - so that I may behold your Real nature.O Nourisher, lone Traveller of the sky! Controller! O Sun, Offspring of Prajapati! Gather Your rays; withdraw Your glaring blinding radiance - that I would see, through Your Grace, that form of Yours which is the most auspicious. I am indeed He, that Purusha, who dwells there!

May i please share a few verses from Aditya Hridayam , a hymn recited by Sage Agastiya to Lord Rama before Lord Rama commenced his heroic battle with the ten headed demon, Ravana , Lankeshpati?

Tapta camee karabhaya haraye Visvakar mane |
Namastamo bhinighnaya rucaye lokasakshine ||

Salutations to you, possessor of the lustre of refined gold, destoryer of ignorance, the architect of the universe. Salutations to the destroyer of darkness, Splendour incarnate; the witness of the world.

Nasayatyesa Vai bhutam tadeva Srujati prabhuh |
Payatyesa tapatyesa Varsatyesa gabhastibhih ||

This Sun God, destroys all that has come into being, he alone creates them all and sustains. He alone radiates heat by his rays and sends rain.

Esa suptesu jagarti bhutesu parinistatah |
Esa Evagni hotram ca phalam caivagni hotrinam ||


Seated in all created beings (as their inner controller) he remains awake when they are asleep. He is both Sacrificial fire as well as the fruit attained by the worshippers there of.

Vedasca kratavascaiva kratunam phalameva ca |
Yani krutyani lokesu sarva Esa Ravih prabhuh ||


Sun is verify the vedas, the sacrifice and also the fruit of sacrifices. He is in deed the Lord of all actions in this universe.

Please read the entire hymn at THE http://www.mypurohith.com/Rituals/Aditya_Hrudayam1.asp

Meditation on this hymn as well as doing Surya namaskar to Sun God will remove ignorance and fill us with the bliss of knowledge !

Salutations to Surya who is verily the Brahman!
