In a way this post is about acknowledging and thanking the sun that is playing a definite role in my daily life. When I got very sick, I was asked to chant "Aditya Hridayam Stotram" (a prayer of the Sun Lord) and it was composed by the great Sage Agastya. It is said that the stotram was composed when Agastya saw Rama being depleted of energy while fighting against Ravana in Ramayana. Well, When there is desperation for an outcome, we would try beyond our belief systems, I did gain by doing so and I gradually realized the lighting up of the sun within. Since then I have been in to surya Namaskar, the salutation to the sun with gratitude. Stepping out in to the morning sun and feeling the warm positive energy has been a priceless experience.
