About the Book

Surya the Sun God is a book that deals with the various aspects of the Sun not confined to astrology and astronomy only. It is an elaborate and multi-dimensional treatment of the Sun. The different aspects of the Sun covered in this book include the following:

The identity of the Sun with the Universal Sour, and a link between the macrocosm and the microcosm.

A connection between the Sun outside and the Fire element that operates within the individual body.

Origin of the Sun according to the Puranas The role of the Sun in the cycle of time, and the concept of the zodiac.

Pauranic stories which highlight the various characteristics of the Sun as of special relevance to predictive astrology.

The segmentation of the Eternal Time and the cycles of Creation and Dissolution.

A complete section on the Sun as appropriate to astrology.

The place of the Sun in the yogic discipline; the importance of the Manipura Chakra and Surya Namaskaara . Propitiation of the Sun as a panacea against ill health and adverse dasha periods of the Sun

Preface to the Second Edition

The relevance of the Sun to the astrologer cannot be overemphasized. Surya the Sun God, however, goes far beyond the realm of a pure astrologer and covers a broad area that pertains to the Sun not only as a graha but also as a god who represents Lord Vishnu, the Preserver of the Universe. This then gives me a special pleasure to bring out the second edition of this book which is of interest to a much wider range of the intelligentsia. The book has been thoroughly revised. New material has been added to the astrological section, particularly that pertaining to the dasha periods of the Sun. Diacritical marks have been inserted to the transliteration of the two major hymns for propitiating the adverse Sun in the chart so that those not conversant with the Sanskrit language may also be able to chant the hymns correctly.

The material provided by Dr. Anita Arora consisting of a major portion of information about the Sun, and the selection of the Sanskrit shlokas and quotations from the scriptures, has been left undisturbed. Y.S. Rawat, from the Systems Vision has taken pains to improve the transliteration.

I must reiterate that the book would not have been completed without the blessings of the Sun-god Himself. I prostrate before Him in all humility for His gracious kindness.

Preface to the First Edition

The Sun has been worshipped in India as Surya, the Sun god since the Vedic times. The ancient Indians had a profound understanding of the celestial phenomena and their deep insight into these made them look at these phenomena with reverence. They understood the design of the cosmos and saw an underlying unity as the essence of an apparent diversity. The manner in which the Indian scholars of the eras gone by have described the deep scientific truths in devotional scriptures speaks volumes about not only their profound knowledge but also of their deep humility and benevolence of attitude.

The Sun-god has been described in the scriptures as the Pratyaksha-devataa, the manifest God. Surya has been likened to lord Vishnu, the God Eternal. Surya alone makes life possible on earth by providing sustenance to the earthlings in varied ways. I would normally not have ventured to write about the Omnipotent Surya on my own. It must have been the gracious desire of Surya Himself to permit me to write about Him.

Surya the Sun God has been prepared with an aim highlight the various dimensions of the Sun-god. The book has been divided into five sections. The first section emphasises on the eternal nature of the Sun, and a deep link between the cosmic Sun and the Sun-element or the soul within the individual. We gave tried to explain the various points with the help of the modern scientific concepts. The role of free-will as well as destiny in the life of an individual has also been briefly touched upon.

The second draws upon information about the Sun in our most popular scriptures, the Puranas. The division of time, the origin of the Sun-god and several interesting stories from the Puranas from the body of this section. An interesting features of these stories is that they all have deep meaning and explain in a subtle manner the various characteristics of the Sun. This hymn to please the Sun-god has been incorporated here from a story in the Mahabharata.

In the third section which deals with the role of the Sun in astrology, information has been collected from standard astrological texts. Several examples in the form of horoscopic charts have been given here to explain the various subtle points.

The Sun has been of great importance to the practitioner of both the Hatha-yoga and the Raja-yoga. The fourth section deals with the Sun as relevant to yoga. We have briefly described the Manipura Chakra, or the Chakra of the Sun, and its role in awakening the somnolent spiritual power called Kundalini lying at the base of the spine. The yogic exercise called Surya Namaskaara, a physical-mental-spiritual exercise, has been described in some detail.

The book concludes with the fifth section containing one of the most effective hymns to propitiate the Sun-god, known as the Aadutya-hridaya Stotram, taken from the Vaalmiki Raamaayana.

Despite my earnest efforts and the help received from various sources, there will be shortcomings in my treatment of the Sun-god. To imagine that one could fully understand and then described the greatness of the Eternal Surya would be mere vainglory. I would only humbly beseech Him to show us His light and remove our ignorance.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items.

I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
