Suryashtak - Sanksrit text

Suryashtak is an eight-versed tribute in Sanskrit to the sun - the source of all energy. The Sanskrit text for Surya-ashtak is familiar to those familiar with Indian ritual worship. It is mostly recited as the Gayatri mantra is, to the accompaniment of a water offering to the sun at sunrise, or Sandhya puja. It is recommended for wellness in body and mind. Sunrise Surya Namaskar

Aadi Dev namastubhyam praseed mam Bhaaskar,

Divaakar namostute, Prabhaakar namostute.

Saptaashwar-rath-maaroodham, prachandam Kashyap-aatmajam,

Shwet-padm-dharam-devam tam Suryam pranmaamyaham.

Lohitam rath-maaroodham, sarv-lok-pitaamaham,

Mahaa-paap-haram-devam tam Suryam pranmaamyaham.

Trai-gunyam cha Mahaashooram, Brahma-Vishnu-Maheshwaram,

Mahaa-paap-haram-devam tam Suryam pranmaamyaham.

Bruhitam tej-punjam cha, vaayum-aakaashmev cha, 

Prabhum cha sarva-lokaanaam tam Suryam pranmaamyaham.

Bandhook-pushp-sankaasham, haar-kundal-bhooshitam,

Ek-chakra-dharam-devam tam Suryam pranmaamyaham.

Tam Suryam jagat-kartaaram Mahaa-tej-pradeepanam,

Mahaa-paap-haram-devam tam Suryam pranmaamyaham.

Tam Suryam jagataam-naatham, Gyaan-vigyaan-mokshadam,

Mahaa-paap-haram-devam tam Suryam pranmaamyaham.
