Aditya Hrudayam Stotram – The Sacred Prayer Of Sun God

In the vedic culture the Gods of nature are worshipped, like Vasus (deity of elements: agni, jal, vayu and more), rudra, ashwini kumar and Aditya. Aditya means the son of devi aditi and this stotra pleases the Lord’s heart and hence called Aditya Hrudayam Stotram. In hinduism or any other culture sages always worship the Lord Sun as the presiding deity. In one of the oldest text, vedas (Rigveda) the mantras and stotras are there to worship the Surya Dev.

Aditya Hrudayam Stotram is the sacred praise to the essence of Surya Dev (Sun God). The stotra includes 31 verses. During the time of Rama and Ravana war, Rama was thinking the solution to kill ravana as the war was going non ending. Rishi Agastya came forward to help Him with the glory of Aditya Hridaya Stotra. The stotra is the glory of Sun God and also describes the fruit. It’s verses give the complete introduction, the praise and the goals one can achieve by praising Surya Dev. The glory is defined so beautifully that it pleases the heart of Sun God. Aditya Hrudayam Stotram is given in Valmiki Ramayana, the sacred scripture of describing the life of Lord Rama.

Stotram in Sanskrit with explanation

Ath Aditya Hrudayam Stotram…..

Sage Agastya saw Rama in deep thought

. ततो युद्धपरिश्रान्तं समरे चिन्तया स्थितम्।
रावणं चाग्रतो दृष्ट्वा युद्धाय समुपस्थितम्॥

Tato yuddhapariśrāntaṃ samare chintayā sthitam
rāvaṇaṃ jāgrato dṛṣṭvā yuddhāya samupasthitam

And then looking at Lord Rama, who was exhausted in the battle field standing with deep thought to fight against Ravana.

Lord Rama had a great battle with intelligent demon Ravana. Getting exhausted and not still able to kill ravana is the cause of worry of Lord Rama. He was into deep thought and Rishi Agastya observed Him.

Accompanied by all the Gods who has come to see the war, Rishi Agastya approached Rama and said as follows

All the Gods, Goddesses and sages come along to see the war and end of Ravana. Ravana has caused harm to Gods and sages. Thus they were standing in the sky and watching. When the war was going on like never ending war, Lord Rama was thinking the solution. Rishi Agastya who was with other Gods came to Lord Rama and said

The verse describes more qualities and form of aditya. It says Aditya is circular in shape, red and yellow colored with the immense heat within Him. He produces more and more heat and sustains the world with his heat. Life is based on the heat. When we die our bodies become cold, no heat. This the Aditya is one who is residing in all of us and entire universe to make us alive. On the other side he is the death (mrityu). His heat is too much that it can destroy, hence here He is stated as Death. He is highly radiant, shining and dear to all.

Further continuing Agastya Ji said that Aditya is the Lord of luminaries (Jyotirganaanaam pataye) and the ruler of day (Dinadhipataye). And we salute Him, the Surya Dev. As the sun rises and sets there is the tradition of prathah Vandana (Praising the Lord in morning time) and sandhya vandana (Praising the Lord at evening when he goes to west).


१७. जयाय जयभद्राय हर्यश्वाय नमो नमः।

Salutations to who is fierce and powerful one, to one who travels fast. Salutations to the one who blossoms the lotus and salutations to the Martand (born from the lifeless egg).

We salute to the Solar Deity who is praised in each and every culture as he is powerful and fierce to the enemies. He gives victory over enemies and therefore Rishi Agastya is telling the significance of Aditya Hridaya Stotra to Lord Rama. Lord Sun is the one who blooms the lotus by his presence. Lord Aditya is also named as Martand. ‘Maar’ means the dead, lifeless and ‘and’ means the egg. A temple in Anantnag, Jammu and Kashmir is dedicated to Lord Martand.

Aditya is the dispeller of the darkness (ignorance), cold, enemies. His extent is immeasurable (infinite atman). Salutations to the annihilator of the ungrateful and to the Lord of all the stellar bodies.

Ignorance is the cause of all problems and Surya (Sun) is the wisdom. Hence when the inner Sun rises we come out of inner darkness. Similarly when sun rises in morning, it takes away all the darkness. He is the remover of enemies. The shadripu (inner 6 enemies) are the most harmful one and eventually aditya removes them too along with outside. Being ungrateful is somewhere the sign of Ego. And as aditya is the God of pragya, he brings the false ego down and makes things clearer.


२१. तप्तचामीकराभाय वह्नये विश्वकर्मणे।

Surya, Aditya has color of molten gold. So He shines like the gold. All the activities of world are sustained by Him only. He is the essence. Rishi Agastya pays Salutations to Vishvakarma who is the architect of the universe because he is the cause of all activities and creation in the world. Truly he destroys the ignorance and lights up the path therefore he is dear to all. He is the one who is the witness of the world. Hence is the one who knows everything.


Creator & Destroyer

पायत्येष तपत्येष वर्षत्येष गभस्तिभिः॥

Nāśayatyeṣa vai bhūtaṃ tadeva sṛjati prabhuḥ
pāyatyeṣa tapatyeṣa varṣatyeṣa gabhastibhiḥ

Salutation to the Lord Aditya who destroys all beings and also create them. Also he produces the rain.

He is the one who is capable of destroying all the bhutas (all that exists) and then himself creates again. He heats up the water, drink it and then produces it in the form of rain via evaporation.


२३. एष सुप्तेषु जागर्ति भूतेषु परिनिष्ठितः।
एष एवाग्निहोत्रं च फलं चैवाग्निहोत्रिणाम्॥

Eṣa supteṣu jāgarti bhūteṣu pariniṣṭhitaḥ
eṣa evāgnihotraṃ ca phalaṃ caivāgnihotriṇām

He remains awake even in sleep of all beings as he resides in each and every being. He is only the sacrifice (agnihotra) and fruit of the sacrifice (agnihotra).

Aditya is the soul of all who is always awake within all beings. In fact in all cases, be it awake state, sleep state or dream state aditya is the witness to all. All the sacrifices, Yajna are Him. Moreover the fruits of yajna or agnihotra are Him only. There is nothing except Him. On the whole, He is all and all is Him.

He is the vedic sacrifice and the fruit of it. Whatever actions are happening in the world, he is behind everything. He is all pervasive.


The Saviour – Remover of hardships, fear and difficulties

२५. एनमापत्सु कृच्छ्रेषु कान्तारेषु भयेषु च।
कीर्तयन् पुरुषः कश्चिन्नावसीदति राघव॥

Enamāpatsu kṛcchreṣu kāntāreṣu bhayeṣu ca
kīrtayan puruṣaḥ kaścinnāvasīdati rāghava

एवमुक्त्वा तदागस्त्यो जगाम च यथागतम्॥

Asmin kṣaṇe mahābāho rāvaṇaṃ tvaṃ vadhiṣyasi
evamuktvā tadāgastyo jagāma ca yathāgatam

O mighty armed (Rama) you will slay Ravana within a moment. And thus saying Rishi Agastya went back to the place he came.

Maharishi Agastya had come to solve the Rama’s problem. And He has given the solution to the problem “How he can win over Ravana demon by killing him”. For this reason He said to Rama that by chanting Aditya Hrudayam Stotra three times with concentration he would be able to kill Ravana within a moment. Bhagwan Agastya had come to Raghav to teach holy hymn of Sun God. After that he left the battlefield and went to his place in between the Gods.

With the grace of all the Gods Rishi Agastya encourages Rama with his meditation power and the stotra.


The Happy Rama
