Significance of Arghya, offering water to the Sun

What is the significance of ‘Arghya’, offering water to the Sun? Read the article which explains the Arghya Mahatmya in Sri Sri Ravishankar’s words..

Water is symbol of love. In fact, in Sanskrit, it is synonymous to love.

‘Apa’ means water and it also means love. That is why, someone very close to you, what do you call them? Apta – means very dear. Apa and Apta are very close.

So, giving water is not important, feeling the connection with the sun is important.

What people used to do was they used to hold water in their hands and let the water leak out of the hand slowly, and for that much time they used to do sun gazing. You look at the sun, gaze and allow the water to seep down. So you need to know timings – It will take a couple of minutes, maybe two or three minutes for the water to leak out. Till that time, you gaze at the sun and let the water leak out and you will see that your body gets energized.

That was the technique behind it. Not just giving water to the sun like that, it will not work.

    JAYA JAYA SHRI KRUSHNA!
    Arghya is very very important for all human beings irrespective of caste, community and race. Devotees of Lord Krushna should see the image of Lrd Krushna on the Sun’s face. This sun-gazing and worship thus becomes worship of Lord Krushna and enables unity with the Lord Krushna. Ultimately it leads to God-realisation and one gets eternal bliss and peace (Parama Ananda and Parama Shanti). As a Sadhaka, God engaged me in Sun gazing and then Sun-arghya for about 12 years. After that my Lord made me realise Him in 2003. Of course, the Sadhana included many more aspects of spiritualism. Practising the teachings of the Lord in Bhagwat Gita was the most important aspect. Try it. God assures success. Only time factor is uncertain. For some, it may take long, may be, many births. It all depends on one’s intensity of love for the Lord and one’s efforts with His blessings. One must try in complete faith and let Him decide the final outcome. HARI BOL!
