Chant to the Sun

Music by Kathleen Karlsen

Lyrics: Om Bhaskaraya Vidmahe, Om Maha Tejaya Dimahe, Om Surya Namaha, Om Surya Om, Tanno Surya Prachodayat


Meaning: "Let me meditate on the Sun. Let me think about the highest power. I bow before the Sun. Homage to the Sun. Let the giver of life illumine my mind." 

Surya, also known as Bhaskaraya or the giver of wisdom and illumination, is the Hindu god of the Sun. Surya is often depicted surrounded by the physical sun, riding in a chariot pulled by seven horses representing the seven chakras. His charioteer is Aruna.


This chant is like a vocal equivalent of the Sun Salutation sequence of poses often done in yoga classes.
