The Ultimate Game-changer! Part 2: Secrets of Aditya Hridayam

Secrets of Aditya Hridayam: Part 2

This is the second part of a series on the powerful stotra: the Aditya Hridayam.

Click here to read the first part.

Quick recap

In the first part of this series, the circumstances under which the Aditya Hridayam was imparted to Rama were explored.

Rama was confused and depressed as nothing was going his way on the battle front. Ravana remained alive and elusive to his tactics and weapons.

In the midst of this, Maharishi Agastya appears and begins to initiate Rama into the Aditya Hridayam.

More than the Solar Orb

Agastya’s introduction to the AH is key to understanding the stotra’s main themes. He mentions that the Sun is:

  • The Ruler of the worlds and Lord of the universe
  • That which is revered by the Devas and Asuras alike
  • The embodiment of all the Gods
  • The nourisher and energiser
  • The embodiment of Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva and other key deities

By the end of the description the Sun is effectively extolled as the Parambrahman; there is nothing that the Sun cannot or doesn’t do to regulate the universe.

The point that is conveyed is that when pray to the Sun with the AH, you are in fact praying to the greatest deity.

In the next part we will look at the benefits of chanting the Aditya Hridayam.
