* The Aditya Hrdayam, a short canto chapter of the Ramayana (by Adivaki Valmiki), offers obeisance to the Sun God. The secret of this eternal stotra is conveyed by Sage Agastya to Lord Rama, who uses it to emerge victorious over Ravana.
Swamiji unravels the power and mystique of the Sun, offering detailed annotations of each verse. He describes the terms and concepts with great clarity, referencing Tattitriya Samhita, Tattitriya Upanishad, Chandogya Upanishad, Srimadbhagavadgita, and more. In this way, we come to appreciate exactly why Aditya Hrdayam is hailed as one of the greatest tributes to the Sun. The book provides original Sanskrit mantras with transliteration and English translation. The appended Sanskrit namavalih with transliteration facilitates chanting. Includes index.
