The Magnificent Sun

Sun is the brightest star in the solar system. It is worshipped in form of both God and Goddess in different  traditions. In Hindu tradition, Surya or the Sun has a deep significance. It is worshipped as the brightest star ruling the Navgraha or the nine planets . Hindu astrology is determined by the positions of the planet with respect to the sun. ‘Suryanamaskar’ or Sun salutation is one of the important aasan’s of Yoga. Sun is considered friend of the men civilization nourishing it with most of the basic needs.
For me Sun is a sign of energy, wisdom, glory and warmth. Sun gives a message that whatever rises, sets. Fierce Sun of summer replaced by gentle sun of winter symbolizes that power and brilliance cannot be equal at the all times. Sun presents us with a hope – a hope of life, a warmth of divine, a ray of light to lead us away from dark.

  2. Wow di! You've come real far from the day you might have first held a camera with as much zeal and enthusiasm as anybody else- dreaming of becoming a pro at photography from an amateur. I am no expert at photography to be able to comment or praise your effort to its entirety, yet I know you have just begun an exciting journey and awaiting many laurels in this endeavor :)! Way to go di!
