Surya is the karaka of your soul, health and stature in the society. The strength of Sun in the horoscope is utmost important. The afflicted or weak Sun can be strengthened by practicing Vedic Remedies.
In Vedic astrology, Sun (Surya) as a planet holds the position of the King of all the planets as it is positioned in the center of all the other planets. It is the significator of Aarogya which stands for good health. It bestows the native with the caliber to lead, desire to earn name and fame, be popular, along with an ambitious approach to life, optimistic attitude, and an iron-strong will take the life head-on.
Just in case that Sun is not well-placed or is placed in a malefic houses such as the Sixth House or the Eighth House or the Twelfth House or has a conjunction with a malefic planet such as Saturn, Rahu, or Ketu or is debilitated in Libra in any birth chart or natal chart or horoscope then the native needs to perform planetary remedies to strengthen the affected Sun and reduce the ill-effects of the Sun in your life.
When the Sun is in a malefic house or is badly placed or has conjunction with any malefic planets like Saturn, Rahu, or Ketu then the native may have to face problems such as:
Problems Related to Father: Bad Sun may lead to a strained relationship between native and his father or his or her father may suffer from any of the health issues or diseases.
The threat to Native’s Reputation: With a bad placement of Sun in any chart can lead to severe damage to the reputation of the native. He or she may fall victim to uncalled controversies that may further lead to loss of reputation, name and fame and position in the society or workplace.
Success on Professional Front Maybe Mired: Success especially in Government Job or Political career may also face issues or may get stalled for an uncertain period of time.
Restricted or Lower Support from Authorities: with a Bad Sun in the natal chart of the native also leads to fewer favors and support from authoritative people and departments of Government.
Unwilling Participation in the argument: Bad Sun unnecessarily and unwillingly gets the native into arguments, heated debates. Aggression also becomes a part and parcel of the native’s nature with a bad Sun in his or her chart.
Therefore, in order to get rid of these above-mentioned bad effects of a bad Sun, there are few remedies for the Graha Shanti of Sun (Surya) that can be done in order to improve the quality of life of the native in general.
In this, the native needs to chant the Surya Bija Mantra 7000 times early in the morning after taking a bath on an empty stomach or before having any breakfast. You need to sit on a mat on the ground and meditate with full devotion while chanting the Bija Mantra for 7000 times.
“Om Hram Hrim Hraum Sah Suryaye Namah”
It is suggested that you start the remedy on a Sunday. Also one must note that completing the ‘Mantra Jaap’ of 7000 times of the Bija Mantra Chant will take more than a day. Therefore, it is better suggested to complete as many times as you can in one seating. Continue following the process as suggested before for coming few days till the ‘Mantra Jaap’ count is achieved.
Once the Mantra Jaap is complete, try and make some donation at an orphanage or old age home on a Sunday.
On Sundays take a bath with water infused with Manahshila (Realgar or Red Orpiment), Elaichi (Small or Green Cardamoms), Devdaru or Deodar Leaves (Cedar Leaves), Kesar (Saffron), Khus (Khuskhus or Vetiver) Rakhtchandan (Red Sandalwood), and Gangajal (Holy Ganges Water). This will help reduce the malefic effect of a weak or malefic sun in the life of the native and will energize positive energy around them. Please note that the native has to take this ayurvedic or Aushadhi bath for a minimum of 5 times. If you cannot do it on a daily basis, make sure you take a bath with water on at least 5 Sundays.
Offer water to the Lord Sun in a copper vessel early in the morning after sunrise after bath on an empty stomach at a neat and clean place especially on Sundays. Try and offer red-colored water by adding a little bit of vermillion (Sindoor or Roli) or red-colored flowers to the water before offering.
Pray to Lord Sun while offering water for peace of mind, health, happiness, wealth and prosperity in life. The Surya Namaskaram is good practice and could be practiced for the rest of the life and especially on Sunday it is beneficial as Sunday is the day for the Planet Sun.
