About Surya Deva:
Surya Deva is one of the Hindu deities and he is the Sun. Surya Dev is considered the life giver and one who nourishes. Shri Surya Mandala ashtakam is from Aditya Hrudaya. Shri Surya Mandala ashtakam is hyme in praise of God Surya. It is said in the stotra that Surya mandal vanishes poverty and sorrow. Surya dev is the only Navgrah that is easily visible to the naked eye. Many scriptures uphold his importance as the chief among these nine planets.All life generates from the heat and light of the Sun. Without Surya, the entire universe would be covered in deep darkness and creation itself wouldn’t have any meaning. According to Vedic texts, Suryadev is the God of light and wisdom. He is also considered to be a form of Vishnu and Shiva by Vaishnavites and Shaivites respectively. He is also one of the eight forms of Astamurti Shiva. Disease, weakness and negativity are cured by the divine light and heat of the Sun, which is always available to us. As a matter of fact, even civilizations before the Vedic age and in other parts of the world recognize the Sun’s importance, and offered ritualistic worship to it. Lord Rama, the 7th Avatar of Lord Vishnu, was a descendant of Surya dev and thus a king of the solar dynasty.
Shri Surya Mandala ashtakam stotram is destroyer of diseases. It vanishes all the sins. Any devotee who recites this stotra daily would go to Surya Loka and all his sins are destroyed by the blessings of God Surya.
