Surya, Sun God to whom the hymn is dedicated to

Ādityahṛdayam (Sanskrit: आदित्यहृदयम्, Sanskrit pronunciation: [aːd̪ɪt̪jəhṛd̪əjəm]), is a devotional hymn associated with Aditya or the mobile Sun God (Surya) and was recited by the sage Agastya to Rāma on the battlefield before fighting the demon king Rāvana. This historic hymn starts at the beginning of the duel between Rāma and Rāvana. Agastya teaches Rāma, who is fatigued after the long battle with various warriors of Lanka, the procedure of worshiping the Sun God for strength to defeat the enemy. These verses belong to Yuddha Kānda (Book 6) Canto 107, in the Rāmāyana as composed by Agastya and compiled by Vālmīki.[1][2]

Etymology[edit]

Aditya (Sanskrit: आदित्य, Lit. Son of Aditi) refers to the Sun. Hridayam (Sanskrit: हृदयम्) is the Sanskrit word for heart.

Significance of slokas[edit]

In ĀdityahṛHridayam there are thirty slokas in total. The significance of the verses is as follows:

1,2  : Approach of Agastya to Rama.

3, 4, 5 : Greatness of the Aditya Hridayam and advantages of reciting it.

6 – 15  : Surya as a means of self-evident consciousness, conveying that the One pervading outside and inside is the same.

16 – 20 : Mantra Japa.

21 – 24 : Mantra slokas extolling the Sun God.

25 – 30 : The fruits of this prayer, the method of recital and the procedure followed by Shri Rama, invoking God to bless him with the requisite strength for the victory in the battle field.
