NOTE for the #MARK
Vedic mantras are sung with special musical stops of rhythm and tones of "top" and "low" called "Udaatta" and "Unudaatta" respectively. These are to be learnt from a competent experienced teacher.
SEVEN SUNS : There is a belief that the Eldest Sun God manifests in SEVEN SUNS, and the seven rays. Their father was the sage Kasyapa. Their mother was Aditi. Kasyapa and Aditi were parens of the God Vishn`u and the Chief of the demy Gods in Heaven "Indra". Hence all of them have alternate names "Aadityas". The Chief Sun God lives in Maha Meru Mountains (Great 'Meru' Mountains, presumably peaks in Himalayas). With the grace of Sun God, Indians believe, we can cure all our ailments. There is a temple of Surya Narayana (Sun - Vishnu) at Arasavilli in Andhra Pradesh, near Srikakulam, a border District Headquarters Town of Andhra Pradesh.
