The Sun Mantra / Sun Jaap Vidhi / Surya Jaap Vidhi
Of all the planets, the Sun’s position in Indian astrology is supreme. The Sun is the king of our solar system. Sun is the Lord of Leo. This is the fifth in serial order in the zodiac and signifies habits and temper of a lion. According to Astrology, the Sun is debilitated when posited in Libra and therefore most compassionate and soothing for the native. In debilitation if the sun is otherwise benefic it will not deliver the desired results. Should it be malefic it will be highly damaging for the native. Such people see many ups and down during their lifetime.
The Sun posited in the sixth, eighth and twelfth houses makes it the worse. It signifies father hence, does not tolerate negligence. Besides it also signifies government, the highest administrative post, physician or persons related to medical fields, persons in powers such as bureaucrats, police, progeny, male child etc. As told earlier, Sun stands for power and authority.
