Many people are advised to worship the sun to achieve prosperity in life. It is believed that offering water to the sun regularly enriches your mental capability and gifts you with endurance and energy.
It helps a person break away from the ill-effects of ego, anger, frustration and evil thoughts that may come up in a person’ mind.

An age old belief states that water offered to the sun in the evening gets converted into stones and these stones are symbolic of curing diseases like Typhoid, TB, Pneumonia etc. When a person offers water towards the direction of the sun the water waves falling from the head to the foot penetrates every part of the body. Scientifically UV radiations have been used to cure various diseases, as sun light passes through water it gets divided into seven colours and these colours penetrate into the body to provide energy.
