Surya Mantra Benefits
Chanting the Surya Mantra daily can help purify the mind, increase concentration, enhance physical and mental strength, and invoke the positive energies of the Sun. It is often practiced during sunrise, facing the east, to align with the Sun’s energy and harness its transformative power. It is advised to chant the mantra with sincerity, focus, and devotion to experience its profound benefits.
Every year the sun passes through twelve different phases, in the West it is known as the zodiac and in the East, it is known as Rashi. According to Eastern astrology, each ‘Rashi’ has a different mood and because of this, each mood is given a different name. Each of these twelve names comprises the twelve sun mantras. These are not merely names of the sun, but every sound syllable contained within them is the vehicle of basic energy represented by the sun itself. The twelve sun mantras should be repeated in their respective order as you flow through the twelve asanas in Surya Namaskar.
