Photographer's Note

Surya Dev is perhaps the most ancient God revered in Hindu belief. In the six sects initiated by Adi Shankracharya, Souram is the sect devoted to Lord Surya. Lord Surya can be called the only God in Hindu belief who can be seen and prayed to in daily life. The sun is personified as Surya Dev in Hindu belief. Sun God is believed to be the King of all the planets and is responsible for controlling all their movements.

The Sun god in Hindu belief is depicted as having a body as shiny and radiant as pure gold. He is believed to be a golden red man with three eyes and four arms, riding a chariot driven by seven white horses. The sun lord is the life giver, sustaining all life on earth by providing all radiance and energy. He by mounting the wheel of time is also the one who is responsible for the beautiful seasons and causing the cycle of day & night. In the Vedas Surya Dev is referred to as the god of light who is responsible for all life on earth.
