Suryashtakam: Adi Deva Namastubhyam

Suryashtakam: Adi Deva Namastubhyam

सूर्याष्टकम्   –   आदिदेव   नमस्तुभ्यं

Click on link below to listen to the Ashtakam:

The Surya Ashtakam (from the Samba Purana) is a prayer in praise of the Sun God, Surya.

The Samba Purana is one of the Saura Upapuranas and is dedicated to Lord Surya. It narrates the story of Krishna’s son Samba who became a leper after being cursed by Rishi Durvasa and was consequently cured by worshiping Surya at the Konark temple constructed by him on the banks of the Chandrabhaga river in Mitravana .

This is one of the most powerful Navagraha prayers to Lord Surya.

दिवाकर नमस्तुभ्यं प्रभाकर नमोऽस्तु ते ॥१॥
