For those of you who are on the spiritual path, the Sun can be a great source of consolation when you feel stuck in life. The Sun is always there. Sometimes we can see it directly, other times we can infer it is there even though there are clouds or it is dark at night. The Sun still shines, somewhere in the world. Swami Sivananda once wrote that the Sun is an avatar of God in the form of a Solar deity, Gayatri. So, with that said, we can pray to God through the Solar avatar/deity, Gayatri, if and when necessary. Here is the Gayatri Mantra/Prayer.
“Om Bhur Bhuva Svah Tatsavitur Varenyam Bhargo Devasya Dimahi Diyona Prachodayat.”
It means: “Dear God, please illuminate my path; guide me from darkness to light & life.”
