The Sun God known by the names Ravi, Surya, Bhanu, Arka, Mithra and by several other names. In fact Rigveda is full of praise, describing Him by several names and qualities. He is Atmakaraka (Significator of soul). Being at the centre of the solar system, Sun is the giver of life force to all the other planets and the life everywhere. He indicates father, honour, status, fame, the heart, the eyes, respect and power. In Rudhra Prashna he is given as an example of living God (“The Gopas say the invisible is Visible here”). He is also referred as a Kavi, the poet who sees everything. Ravi gives clear perception. In his name Trijakalpa Suryanamaskara (a pooja for Ravi) is conducted on Sundays. Propitiation measures to Ravi strengthen bones, cure illness particularly of cardio vascular nature gives progeny, gold, restores honour and dignity. However, the exact role Ravi plays is dependent on his ruler ship, placement and association as well as aspect in the natal chart.

The mantra is to be recited for seven thousand times, starting from Sunday. 1/10 of the mantra is performed as homa with twigs of Aak and of 1/10 of homa to be done as tarpan and 1/10 of that it should be marzan.
