Our Vedas eulogize the Sun, and there are many hymns in praise of the Surya Devata. Especially, the first chapter of the Krishna Yajur Veda Taittiriya Aranyakam has come to be known in recent times as the Surya Namaskar chapter. Surya Namaskar is a fundamental set of 12 postures to step into a higher state of consciousness that reflects Purity. It leads to Yoga, or the significant moment when one relaxes, absorbed in divine union.
The entire process comprises of
• A Cheerful beginning
• Stepping onto the Yogamat facing EAST
• Having a sip of Water to begin with
• Chanting Om Suryaaya Namah
It is a proven cardiovascular workout of a high order, when done at a smooth pace.
When done with holding the stretch at each pose with normal breathing, it is meditative, relaxing and toning.
The Sun is traditionally connected to the Manipura Chakra, known as the Navel Center, or the Solar Plexus. It is also the 2nd brain of the body, where all the nerves meet, and the place of the umbilical cord attaching every new born. We see that all the poses in the Surya Namaskar have a significant effect on the solar plexus. In other words these asanas massage, strengthen, realign, and invigorate the stomach and gut. That by default in medical parlance is the prime source of illness prevention and cure.
