Nothing is more important to us on Earth than the Sun. Without the Sun’s heat and light, the Earth would be a lifeless ball of ice-coated rock. The Sun warms our seas, stirs our atmosphere, generates our weather patterns, and gives energy to the growing green plants that provide the food and oxygen for life on Earth.

The Sun gives off light and heat, and we need both to make the Earth a warm, comfortable place to live. Plants use light from the Sun for photosynthesis, creating food for animals and oxygen for us to breathe. Sunlight makes our days bright, and it reflects off the Moon to give us light at night.

Human skin can make large amounts of vitamin D when lots of skin is exposed and the sun is high in the sky. Your body is designed to get the vitamin D it needs by producing it when your bare skin is exposed to sunlight. The part of the sun’s rays that is important is ultraviolet B

The sun follows its dharma; that dharma involves the Sun giving light, heat and energy to all life forms in our galaxy. The Sun is unerring in its following of this task and acts exactly as the Divine acts, ever give the source of life abundantly to all life forms. All life is born with light and love; there is light from the soul, there is love in the Soul first.

Hrim is the bija (seed sound) made by the Sun as it moves.


Om srim hiranyagarbhaya namaha, Salutations to the Sun who is the most auspicious golden womb encasing all that is.
