Surya: The Sun Godby K., S. Charak
Synopses & Reviews
Surya: The Sun God
The Sun has been worshipped in India as Surya, the Sun-god, since the Vedic times. The ancient Indians had a profound understanding of the celestial phenomena and their deep insight into these made them look at these phenomena with reverence. They understood the design of the cosmos and saw an underlying unity as the essence of an apparent diversity. The manner in which the Indian scholars of the eras gone by have described the deep scientific truths in devotional scriptures speaks volumes about not only their profound knowledge but also of their deep humility and benevolence of attitude.
Surya the Sun God has been prepared with an aim to highlight the various dimensions of the Sun-god. The book has been divided into five sections. The first section emphasises on the eternal nature of the Sun, and a deep link between the cosmic Sun and the Sun-element or the soul within the individual. We have tried to explain the various points with the help of the modern scientific concepts. The role of free-will as well as destiny in the life of an individual has also been briefly touched upon.
A most elaborate, multi-dimensional and comprehensive treatment of the Sun in Yoga, Vedanta, Astrology and Pauranic lore. A must for all those interested in Vedic astrology and ancient Indian culture.
