Description
Surya (/?su?rj?/;[3] Sanskrit: ?????, IAST: S?rya) is a Sanskrit word that means the Sun.[4] Synonyms of Surya in ancient Indian literature include Aditya, Arka, Bhanu, Savitr, Pushan, Ravi, Martanda, Mitra, Bhaskara, Prabhakara and Vivasvan.[5][6][7] Surya also connotes the solar deity in Hinduism,[8] particularly in the Saura tradition found in states such as Rajasthan, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Bihar, Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Jharkhand and Odisha. Surya is one of the major five deities in Hinduism, considered as equivalent aspects and means to realizing Brahman in the Smarta Tradition.[9] The iconography of Surya is often depicted riding a chariot harnessed by horses, often seven in number[1] which represent the seven colours of visible light, and seven days in a week.[4][10] In medieval Hinduism, Surya is also an epithet for the major Hindu gods Shiva, Brahma and Vishnu.[8][11] In some ancient texts and arts, Surya is presented syncretically with Indra, Ganesha or others.[5][10] Surya as a deity is also found in the arts and literature of Buddhism and Jainism.[12][13] Surya is depicted with a Chakra, also interpreted as Dharmachakra.[14] Surya is the lord of Simha (Leo), one of the twelve constellations in the zodiac system of Hindu astrology. Surya or Ravi is the basis of Ravivara, or Sunday, in the Hindu calendar.[15] Major festivals and pilgrimages in reverence for Surya include Makar Sankranti, Pongal, Samba Dashami, Ratha Sapthami, Chath puja and Kumbh Mela.[16][17][18] Having survived as a primary deity in Hinduism arguably better and longer than any other of the original Vedic deities apart from Vishnu and Shiva, the worship of Surya declined greatly around the 13th century, perhaps as a result of the Muslim conquest of north India. New Surya temples virtually ceased to be built, and some were later converted to a different dedication, generally Shiva. A number of important Surya temples remain, but many are no longer in worship. In certain aspects, Surya has tended to be merged into Vishnu or Shiva, or seen as subsidiary to them.[19]Product Code-ART_6175_56394
