  2. Chant it only after taking a bath.

  3. Very useful..To be informed to all.

  4. Is there any parayana vidhi for Adityahrudaya strothram, few ppl say that it should be chanted only during day time when sun is present…

  5. Here is the translation along with all the said slokas:

    The war between Sri Rama and Ravana was going on in Lanka. Though the great warriors from Ravana’s army had fallen down, he refused to bow down. He was fighting with more energy and valor.
    Sri Rama started worrying about how to make Ravana give up the fight. He couldn’t think of a way to make him bow. Sri Rama also started to be fatigued. At that time, the great sage Agasthya came to the scene.
    Sage Agasthya taught ( gave upadesha to ) Sri Rama, the Adhitya Hrudhaya Stotram, which sings the glory of Sun god, Surya Bhagawan. Sri Rama prayed to Surya and gained his will power, fought valiantly and defeated Ravana. Thus goes the story of Rama in Valmiki Ramayana.
    Our Maha Periyava was conveying this epic story to Sri C.R. Pattabhi Raman, son of Sri. C.P. Ramasamy Iyer. Periyava also added that these 31 slokas appear in Yuddha kandam ( the chapter that describes the war scene between Sri Rama and Ravana) of Valmiki Ramayana. After saying this, periyavaa proceeded to do other things.
    But Sri. C.R. Pattabhi Raman didn’t think that it should be forgotten there. He thought our guru Kanchi mahaan has preached PattabiRaman what Sage Agasthya had preached the great Dasaratha Raman of Threthe yuga. He made a promise to himself that he won’t forget this ever.
    Sri C.R thought it should be widely publicized and all people should pray to Sun God and be blessed with will power and courage by Sun god.
    Here are the slokas:

  10. Hi Mahesh
    I just chanced to visit this thread while searching for info on Aditya Hridaya stotra. I am not good in translating Tamil but after reading the picture here is what I understood to be the gist of Maha Periyavaals message.

    The 7 slokas starting from Nakshatra grahataaraanaam…. and ending with Ravaye loka saakshine has special Mantra Shakti.

    Thanks a lot for sharing this valuable piece of information. May the blessings of divine Aditya shower upon all!

  11. GURUVE CARANAM…

  12. Ever since I read about this from Maha PeriyavAs Darsana Anubhavangal – I make it a point to recite these seven slokas at least once daily. Bestows hitherto unforeseen clarity and freshness true to HIS words!

  13. Namasthe! I could read the display of only 6 lines from that Adhithya hrudhaya slokam. It is not a complete one with all 7 slokams as said by Periyava-i.e it doesn’t end with ‘ravaye loka saakshine’. Is that due to my system compatibility or any other problem? If you can post that again, i will be happy.Thankyou!

  14. C.R.Pattabhiraman was a Union Minister& a great devotee of Maha Periyava,who gave away the entire Mezanine Floor on His building at Oliver Road(next to Tulsi Silks)and he inaugurated Sanskrit classes too there which I used to attend.It is the official Chennai office of Kanchi University.
