Surya Narayan (The Sun God)

The second deity that we worship is Surya Narayan

Surya Narayan Swami is the bright and shining Sun God, often referred to as Suruj Narayan, Surya, Aditya or Adi Dev. Adi Dev controls the Navagraha Devatas (9 celestial entities). After Ammaa had exhausted all her powers fighting demons She went into deep meditation. Surya Narayan swami gave her the third eye so that She may be able to burn any demon that attempted to obstruct her concentration.

Without the light energy from Surya Narayan Swami, survival on Earth would be impossible. Before performing puja on to the Divine Mother, we pay respects to Surya Narayan Swami because without his light, agriculture growth is impossible.
