☆☆☆☆☆A very popular hymn to Aditya ( ☼ Sun God in HIndu Mythology)☆☆☆☆☆
It was first recited by the great sage Agastya to Rama on the battlefield before fighting with Ravana.

Sage Agastya teaches Lord Rama, who is fatigued after the long battle with various fighters of Lanka, this procedure of worshiping Surya for strength to defeat the enemy. These verses belong to Yuddha Kanda (Book 6) Canto 107, in the Ramayana composed by Valmiki.
