Mantras for Sun (Ravi)

Part 1

The Sun God known by the names Ravi, Surya, Bhanu, Arka, Mithra and by several other names. In fact Rigveda is full of praise, describing Him by several names and qualities. He is Atmakaraka (Significator of soul). Being at the centre of the solar system, Sun is the giver of life force to all the other planets and the life everywhere. He indicates father, honour, status, fame, the heart, the eyes, respect and power. In Rudhra Prashna he is given as an example of living God (“The Gopas say the Invisible is Visible here”). He is also referred as a Kavi, the poet who sees everything. Ravi gives clear perception. In his name Trijakalpa Suryanamaskara (a pooja for Ravi) is conducted on Sundays. Propitiation measures to Ravi strengthens bones, cure illness particularly of cardio vascular nature, gives progeny, gold, restores honour and dignity. However, the exact role Ravi plays is dependent on his ruler ship, placement and association as well as aspect in the natal chart.
