Surya

Surya- Pencil Sketch (Digitally modified)

Surya-The lord of Planets

The significance of Surya in Indian thought is not only as one of the lord of Grahas, but as identical with the supreme godhead Vishnu.

He sits on a lotus, carrying in his two hands red lotuses, his complexion is deep red, his chariot has seven horses, yoked by seven ropes.

The seven horses of Sun are the seven Vedic metres- Gayatri, Brhati, Ushnik, Jagati, Trishtup, Anushtubh and Pankti.

And hence, She is the provider and nourisher of mundane needs of her people. The Rosary and the Scripture represent the Spiritual needs of the people. She spiritually uplifts people by leading them to ultimate goal of Jnana (Realization). Hence, She provides both Bukti (Worldly comforts) and Mukti (Spiritual Liberation) to millions of Children who reside in her (i.e. in India)
