Surya Namaskar is a significant yoga practice that was first introduced during the Vedic period. At that time, Suryopasana was performed as an extremely powerful symbol for spiritual awakening. Let’s begin by understanding the origin of Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutation):

Who invented Surya Namaskar?

King of Aundh:

Raja Bhavanrao Shrinivasrao Pant Pratinid of Aundh created Surya Namaskar well-known in the 1920s. He wrote about the practice in his book The Ten-Point Path to Health: Surya Namaskars. It was believed by many that he created the practice, but Bhavanrao Srinivasrao Pant claimed that the practice was already popular Marathi Tradition.

Ideas Of Anthropologists :

The earliest, simple Surya Namaskars like Aditya Hridayam are described in the Ramayana’s “Yuga Katha” 107 which is not a part of the contemporary sequence. The anthropologist Joseph Alter states that the Surya Namaskar was not recorded in any yoga texts prior to the 19th century. At the time, Surya Namaskar was not considered to be yoga, and its movements were not considered to be Asanas.

Lord Hanuman

Vayu god of wind and air, was the first to teach pranayama his son Hanuman who then taught it to the rest of humanity. Pranayama can be defined as the power to regulate the breathing so that the exhalation and inhalation of air is in a rhythmic manner.

Hanuman also invented an idea for the Surya Namaskara (salutation in the direction of the Sun) to express his gratitude to his mentor Suryadev (Sun God).

The second possible source of the sun’s dynamic sequence could be in the Ramanaya one of the epics from India. When they look out at an ocean that is vast, they’re unhappy about their inability to traverse this vast body of water. Then Hanuman is able to recall his powers. Growing his body and, the man leaps and flies across the ocean.

Surya Namaskar

Today, Surya Namaskar can be performed in many different ways. Traditionally, mantras accompany the 12 positions, remembrance of the 12 zodiac significations in Hindu Astrology and the twelve sound-syllables which contain all the Shakti (energy) which is represented through the sun.

What is the science behind Surya Namaskara

It was said (by the ancient Rishis from India) it is believed that various organs that comprise the human body controlled by various Devas (divine energy that are divine or light).

The solar plexus (located just behind the navel, which is the most central area of human anatomy) is believed to be linked to the sun.

The principal reason that ancient Rishis advised practicing Surya Namaskar since the practice of this method improves the solar plexus. This enhances one’s imagination and capabilities.

Our emotions are kept in our solar plexus, and it’s also the place where emotions come to the surface. Solar plexus size believed to be similar to that of a tiny gooseberry.But, it gets bigger when you practice yoga or meditate – nearly three or four times larger than the average size. The larger your solar plexus, the more stable your mind and sensitivity.

The human body (through physical movements) and the mental faculties (though your solar plexus) as well as the mind (through singing) are boosted by performing Surya Namaskar.

The benefits of Surya Namaskara:

  • Your muscles get strengthened, and they become toned. The blood circulation is improved as well as the irregular menstrual cycles are controlled.
