ARASAVALLI

Sun worship has been prescribed from ancient days as a means of attaining worldly prosperity.

Agasthya Maharshi is said to have taught the Aditya Hridaya or prayer to Lord Sun, to Rama on the eve of Lord Rama's fight with Ravana.

In the Bhavishya Purana, it is stated that Samba, son of Srikrishna, was cured of his leprosy by his constant worship of the Sun God.

Mayura, who lived in the court of Harsha- vardhana in the 7th century A.D., compos- ed Surya Sataka or hundred verses in praise of Lord Sun in order to cure himself of blindness, while in Malati-Madhavam, Bhavabuti, the great Sanskrit poet, makes the Sutradhara invoke the rising Sun for the purification of sin.
