O Agni – the Bright Being

The Ishavasya Upanishad ends with the following Shloka:

अग्ने नय सुपथा राये अस्मान्‌ विश्वानि देव वयुनानि विद्वान्‌ ।

युयोध्यस्मज्जुहुराणमेनो भूयिष्ठां ते नम‍उक्तिं विधेम ॥ १८ ॥

agne naya supathaa raaye asmaan vishvaani deva vayunaani vidhvaan

yuyodh-yasmaj juhuraana-meno bhuuyisht-haan te nama uktim vidhema (IU 18)

O Agni – the Bright Being, lead us to the right path to enjoy the fruits of our actions. Remove from us, delusion and sin. We offer you, in salutation, again and again, our words of adoration for You.

The Sun, revered as Aditya Bhagavan, without whom, nothing would exist in our solar system, is known as the God who is visible to everyone.

The Aditya Hridayam Mantra is considered to be one of the most powerful Mantras to help a seeker, build immense power within them to be able to fight all kinds of challenges, including those threatening health or even life. Understanding the meaning of this Mantra aids a person in overcoming false ego and vanity using the story of Ravana who was ego, arrogance, vanity, and extreme haughtiness.
