Suryam Pranamamyaham In the ancient Hindu scriptures, it is believed that before creation, when there was utter darkness, an endless Egg was materialised, in the midst of which, Pitamaha Brahma was present atop a lotus stem. As he broke open the Egg in the middle and from his mouth emerged the ‘MahaShabda’ (The Enormous Sound) ‘AUM’. This Sound was followed by the foremost Sound ‘BHU’; then came BHUVAH, followed by SVAHA; the Sum of these three echoes formed Surya the Sun.
‘Surya’ the Hindu god of the Sun is considered the creator of the universe. The main deity of the Navagrahas or the Nine Planets of Hindu Astrology. The centre around whom the other eight grahas revolve. Surya is often portrayed as riding a chariot driven by seven horses, all with rays of light shining from them representing the seven colours of the rainbow.
Since radiance and radiation constitute the essential ingredients of Srishti (Creation) Surya is considered the source of all life. He is the supreme soul who brings light and warmth to the world. Even Lord Brahma said that Surya Deva was the nucleus of Vedas, and the featureless ‘Para Brahma’ Swarupa possessing all powers of Creation, Preservation and Annihilation. Surya is also worshipped as a symbol of health and immortal life. Hindu religious literature, Surya is notably mentioned as the visible form of God that one can see every day. He is Savitur, the begetter; Pushan, Nourisher; Vivasvat, the Brilliant; Bhaskara, the Light-maker; Dinakara, the Day-maker; Loka-Chakshuh, the Eye of the World; Karma-Sakshi, the Witness of the Deeds; and Graharaja, King of the Constellations.The Sun is the vision of the divine, who removes darkness and fills our body and soul with his radiance.
