INTRODUCTION

Scriptures in several places visualised in unambiguous terms the glorious position of Surya Bhagawan. He is equated with the greatest among gods.

He occupies the pre-eimenent place among the planets, and it is around him all the other eight planets are revolving in their orbits since ,creation, at the instance of Lord Siva according to Saivagamas. Suryamurti - Sun-god is one of the Ashtamurtis of Siva and stands for Buddhignana aspect, representing the collective gnana of the whole mass of the animate world. Further, this Vedic deity is deemed one of the forms of Vishnu also. He is worshipped both independently and in association with Varuna - the Rain-god. He is praised in several contexts in Rig Veda, and his popular and frequent form as Mitra finds mention in many places. On account of the chief function of dispelling darkness and giving life to the animate world, he is fittingly called Mitra. And this sticks to his name aptly.

And above all. he is one of the clearest natural phenomena visible in the sky. He is Pratyaksha Daivam and also Karmasakshi. Surya Bhagawan is pervading like Srimannarayana. the entire universe and with his powerful rays he obliterates all impurities, and energizes the whole universes. He cures ailments, like leprosy and heart diseases. And there are several episodes of the marvelous cure on praying to him ardently.
