Hindus acknowledge the importance of Sun and
sunlight in their daily lives and begin their day by paying tribute to the Sun God (Surya
Devata). The Suryanamaskar (or Sooryanamaskar) is prayer to Sun God, and it is a
perfect combination of exercise and prayers
Hindus believe that spirituality must encompass
a sound mind and a sound body. Yogasanas are therefore designed not just for
physical fitness but also mental strength. It is recommended that these simple yogasanas
be carried out every day.
