Surya Mandala Stotram Ashtakam Details Text


The Sun is called Surya and is given the pride of place in Hinduism.

 

He is hailed as Prathyaksha Brahma, the visible Reality,Brahman.

 

So much so, Lord Krishna had the Hymn on Surya in the Sandhyavandan.

 

The portion in the Sandhyavandan,

 

Namassvitre Jadadeega Chakshuse, Jagat Prasoothi Stithi Naasa hethave,

 

Thramayeyaa thrigunaathmadhaarine, virinchi narayana sankaraathmane,

 

Threyas satha  Savitru mandalavvaan Madhyavarthi ….”

 

was included by Yudhistir at the command of Lord Krishna, when Lord Krishna had the Amavasya, New Moon advanced by a day before the

 

Mahabharata war.

 

The Surya Mandala Stotra was taught to Arjuna By Lord Krishna(Bhavishya Puran)

 

 

So important is Surya worship Adi Shankaracharya established  Saura as one of the Six systems of Hindu worship,Shanmathas.

 

Adityahruthaya sloka was taught to Lord Ram by Sage Agastya to help Ram to win the war against Ravana.

 

 

 

Suryamandala Ashtakam is not well-known.

Note:

The metre structure of each shloka is:

11 – 11 . —
11 – 11 .. —

where the numbers indicate the number of syllables
and the dashes the relative pause required; a rather
straightforward metre.

Also note the recurring `tatsaviturvareNyam.h’ of
the gAyatri mantra; this is a hymn to the Sun!
