आदिदेव नमस्तुभ्यं प्रसीद मम भास्कर । दिवाकर नमस्तुभ्यं प्रभाकर नमोऽस्तु ते ॥ Ratha Saptami is observed on the seventh day of Shukla Paksha during the month of Magha. It represents the day Lord Surya turns his Ratha (Chariot) drawn by seven horses with Aruna as the charioteer towards the northern hemisphere. Hence the day is celebrated in honor of Surya Bhagwan. Aruna Prashnam from the Thaitreeya Aranyaka of Krishna Yajur Vedam is considered to be the most significant vedic hymn for worshipping Surya Bhagwan. It is believed that chanting or listening to Aruna Prashnam will bestow one with good health and a long healthy life.
