Aum Khagaaya Namah
Aum Khagaaya Namah: Khaga means space, Akash, and gama means go - one who travels through the sky. It indicates the presence of the sun, the sun-rays and the sun-warmth everywhere in the space. You can’t find a pinch of place in the sea without seawater so is the sun in the universe. There is no place, neither in our body nor outside in the entire universe, without the sunrays. You yourself can experience this fact. Close your eyes. Ask someone to put on and off the electric tube light. Though your eyes are closed, you get the feel of the tube light. You can measure and count time in days, weeks, months, years because of the sunrise and the sunset. The sun reminds us of the passing days and years. Life is the sum total of days, weeks, months and years. With His own example HE prompts us not to waste time. Wasting time in doing nothing is going fast near to the death point. It is a slow suicide. So pray to the Sun God to give us energy and wisdom to use the life span in the self-help and in the service to others.
