Pivotal to the solar system, the Sun is central also to the Hindu fait. The Vedas sing the primacy of Soorya. Soorya Chaaleesaa is recited every morning by all pious Hindus for good health and prosperity.
The Holy Ramayan pays the highest tribute to Soorya. In Lanka, when the armies of Shri Ram and Lankasur Ravan are poised for a bitter battle, the deities stand watching from the firmament. Shri Ram, though an incarnation, as a human was a little worried. Sage Agastya makes his appearance there to boost up the monarch’s morale. He teaches Shri Ram Aditya Hridayam, a paean to the glory of the Sun God, whose grace assures victory to the devotee.
Shri Ram, as Man, listens to the sage with devout attention and is blessed. In the battle, He destroys Evil and refurbishes dharma. Reciting Soorya Chaaleesaa brings to all good health, prosperity and victory over the enemies.
