Aditya Hrudayam

Solar power is the source of all life in our world. Therefore, it is appropriate that we worship the unseen intelligence behind the solar power – The Sun God, Aditya.  Before doing battle with the demon Ravana, Rishi Agastya advised Sri Rama to chant this hymn to gain strength.  It is said that those who chant this hymn daily gain shining good health.

Aditya Hrudayam

Sundays, 10.00am – 11.00am
June 5th, 2022 – July 31st,2022

Srikrithi Pallemoni, a rising High School junior, attended Balvikas classes and the summer programs offered at the temple throughout her childhood, where she learned many valuable lessons. Wanting to give back to the community, she took on the role of an assistant teacher in the Balvikas program, and Aditya Hrudayam program and has been teaching for 2 years. In fact, she got a chance to learn the Aditya Hrudayam a few years ago through this very Balvikas Summer Program and found that anytime she was nervous or anxious, chanting the Aditya Hrudayam helped her overcome that situation. She hopes to share this powerful shloka with you, to help further empower you with god’s blessings.
